Sony Xperia 1 III arrives for pre-order in Russia at $1,300

Yordan, 15 April 2021

Sony announced its third generation of Xperia 1 and Xperia 5 flagships yesterday but stayed silent on the pricing and availability.

However, now the two phones are listed for pre-order on Sony Russia’s official store, along with their pricing - the Xperia 1 III is $1,300, while the Xperia 5 III is just over $1,100.

The actual prices in Russian rubles for the Xperia 1 III is RUB99,990, which can also be translated to €1,095. That's for the 12/256 GB smartphone in Black - there are no other options. Importantly, Sony will throw in a pair of WF-1000XM3 earphones for free.

Similar is the situation with the smaller Xperia 5 III. Its price in Russia is RUB84,990, which is equal to about €930. It has one memory option of 8/256 GB and two color choices - Black or Green. All purchases will also come with a free pair of WF-XB700 TWS earphones.

Sony Russia says both phones are currently out of stock and will start shipping “soon”, and our tipster Josip says the launch is scheduled for July 20, but we cannot confirm the date yet.

I was looking for it in Russia... released date 21 July... Sony is out of the world.

How much guts a hypocrite needs to defend its uselessness?! I did uninstall FB (and all these apps are perfectly block-able) by personal proof!! Blocked all apps in the most compatible and easy way not a single issue. Stop give examples when yourself...
