Some features of the future Sony Xperia 1 III are leaked. Sony no longer treasures the volume of smartphone launches it used to have, but its models continue to reach the market, although in smaller quantities. And among those launched each season, the Xperia 1 is their current catalog leader. The last one we met, about ten months ago, was the Xperia 1 II and is on track for renewal.
The model that would touch now, by generation and nomenclature, is the Sony Xperia 1 III, or Xperia 1 (mark) III, and although the model has not been too much in the usual rounds of leaks and rumors, the truth is that just poked his paw under the door. The Xperia 1 III has left some features exposed in a timid filtration.
Snapdragon 888 and a 15 percent brighter OLED
It has been the user TheGalox_on Twitter, a leak that does not appear much in the front pages of the technological media, which has slipped some features, always supposed to confirm the brand, the future Xperia 1 III. One of them, however, is not very surprising as it talks about Snapdragon 888 as the future brain of the creature.

-6.5-inch 4K OLED HDR display
-15% brighter display
-Snapdragon 888 processor
-8GB RAM, 256GB storage
-Side-mounted fingerprint sensor

The processor was introduced less than a month ago and has already debuted on board the Xiaomi Mi 11. While it is expected to be the dominator of the Android market during 2021. So seeing this processor in the next range of Sony smartphones is no surprise.
Other leaked data mention 8GB RAM and 256GB of internal space as apparently the only model available. Also the fingerprint reader will be placed on the side of the phone. And its price will be 1,199 USD. Quite in line with the previous models of the line.
The Xperia 1 II was presented in February, will Sony launch on the same date in 2021?
Other leaked data shows that there will be a 6.5-inch screen and it will have 4K resolution. It’s not strange either, considering the screen of Xperia 1 II. It will be OLED and support HDR content. It is expected to maintain the 21:9 ratio.
There is no further data about Xperia 1 III beyond that it is claimed to be 15% brighter. Gorilla Glass is also expected as protection, and IP68 certification as well as stereo speakers will be present.
