Sony continues to make its niche smartphone for its enthusiasts. The company announced its Xperia 1 III and the Xeria 5 III both as successors to the previous Xperia 1 II and Xperia 5 II.
Even though the announcement was made way back in April and the device is mostly available in many western countries across the globe such as the US, UK, and Australia, the device is, however, missing in China.
Sony will commence the sale of the Xperia smartphone in China as soon as December and the price tag for the device is about US$1,034 (CN¥6,599) according to an official poster broadcasted by the company.
Even though the Chinese market is open to receiving another Android smartphone despite being loaded with tons of local-made smartphones from other big brands like Xiaomi, Huawei, and, Oppo, Sony’s niche camera smartphone will definitely grab the attention of those who want a device with those capabilities.
Another thing to also note is the fact that there is no specific date in December when the Sony Xperia 5 III will be released – so keep that at the back of your mind.

Features of the Xperia 5 III include a not-so-big 6.1-inch Full HD+ OLED display with a fast 120Hz refresh rate and a 21:9 tall aspect ratio.
The device will be powered by a Snapdragon 888 chipset with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage.
In the camera department, it will feature a triple 12MP setup which includes an ultrawide sensor and a telephoto zoom lens.
Speaking of being an ultimate professional camera smartphone, the Xperia 5 III comes with support for a two-step physical camera shutter button.
Other things to note include the placement of the device’s fingerprint scanner by the side, 3.5mm headphone jack which is quite surprising since that seems to be missing in a lot of premium-tier smartphones.
