The brand new Xperia 1 III smartphone, the latest flagship handset from Sony, is now available to purchase on O2 custom plans.

The follow-up to Sony’s hugely successful Xperia 1 II, the Xperia 1 III builds on its predecessor, with a remarkable AF speed, versatile triple camera and astonishing 4K display combining to create a smartphone that exceeds all expectations.

Available in Frosted Black, the Xperia 1 III boasts a 4K HDR OLED 120Hz refresh rate display[i] with BRAVIA® picture quality, making for a uniquely immersive viewing experience for all your entertainment needs. The 21:9 CinemaWide™ display is ideal for gaming, providing a much wider, unrestricted view of the action than most other devices, while the 240Hz motion blur reduction ensures smooth and blur-free gameplay.

The Xperia 1 III is the world’s first smartphone with a variable telephoto lens and Dual PD sensor in one[ii]. Sony’s unique telephoto system supports fast AF, even at extended focal lengths, meaning photography entusiasts will be able to unleash their creativity like never before. The camera’s Real-time Tracking[iii], meanwhile, uses professional technology from Sony’s Alpha range of cameras to help users accurately detect and precisely focus on a subject, even if it’s moving.

With audio tuned in collaboration with Sony Music Entertainment, the Xperia 1 III has been engineered to deliver a truly authentic listening experience and comes with a built in 3.5mm audio jack which delivers high fidelity sound quality. The 4.500mAh battery ensures the Xperia 1 III will keep you going throughout the day, while a range of charging features helps maximise convenience and prolong battery life, while the Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 888 5G Mobile Platform at the heart of Sony’s latest flagship handset delivers a premium user experience.

O2 customers can get their hands on the Xperia 1 III for £41 per month for 3GB of data with a £30 upfront payment. Customers who purchase the Xperia 1 III before 15th September 2021 can also claim a pair of Sony WH-1000XM3 Noise Cancelling headphones worth £329.

O2’s custom plans allow customers to get the device their heart is set on at a more affordable rate, with the ability to choose how much they want to pay upfront, the length of their Device Plan, selecting anywhere between three and 36 months (in one-month increments), and the option to flex their data allowance up or down every month to suit their needs from a family of tariffs.
