Sony Xperia 1 III to come with brighter display and better selfie camera

Ro, 28 September 2020

With the Xperia 1 II and 5 II already official the rumor mill's attention is turning to the Xperia 1 III, which is supposed to arrive sometime at the beginning of next year. We have the first report and it's fairly specific considering we are still several months away from the announcement. A Japanese publication with a decent track record on Sony-related stuff says it's got the intel from a trusted insider.

Sony Xperia 1 III to come with brighter display and better selfie camera

The report claims that the Xperia 1 II successor is going to upgrade the display and offer 15% higher brightness while the selfie camera will have a supposedly wider aperture improving its overall performance. The camera's sensor size and resolution will remain the same, though.

We wonder if the bump in brightness will come with other changes in the display, and if we are about to see another 4K panel. There's still plenty of time before the actual handset arrives, so chances are we'll get the answer to that in that time frame.
