It is nice that Sony Malaysia decided to throw in a pair of premium earbuds to sweeten the deal, as the Sony Xperia 1 III is definitely one of the most expensive Snapdragon 888-based smartphone in the market right now. Other key specifications of the Sony Xperia 1 III include a 6.5″ 21:9 4K 120Hz OLED display, triple 12MP cameras and a headphone jack.

However the main reason for anyone to get the Sony Xperia 1 III is definitely not for its hardware, as it is quite evidently lagging behind in that area. Instead, it is in the software aspect where Sony shines. The Xperia 1 III borrows from the Sony Alpha camera team, with features like real-time tracking, real-time eye AF and Photography Pro, to enable content creators to shoot their masterpieces with just the Xperia 1 III.
