SONY XPERIA 5 III
The SONY Xperia 5 III combines powerful performance and a long battery life with the latest in SONY camera, sound, and display technology – all in a compact phone that is easy to use even one-handed.
Serious power in a hand-fit design
In a world of ever larger smartphones, the Xperia 5 III shows there is another way. Boasting 5G speed, powerful performance and impressive battery life, it packs the latest Sony camera, display, sound and gaming technologies into a compact design that’s easy to use one-handed.
Professional technology from Alpha cameras
The Xperia 5 III was co-developed with the engineers behind the latest Alpha 9 series cameras, renowned for their industry-leading autofocus technology, and with input from professional photographers, who helped tune the technology and refine the photographic experience and results. Key features include fast AF in all three cameras, plus object tracking technology to maintain sharp focus on moving subjects.
Outstanding ZEISS quality in your Xperia
ZEISS optics calibrated specifically for your Xperia smartphone. The ZEISS T* coating contributes to exquisite rendering and contrast by reducing reflections.
Four versatile lens options to unleash your creativity
Expand your creative possibilities with four versatile lenses in a triple camera and fast, accurate AF across all cameras. Thanks to Dual PDAF sensors, Continuous AF keeps focus on moving subjects, while Sony’s unique telephoto system supports fast AF even at extended focal lengths.
Lightning fast focus, even at long range
An optical telephoto lens up to 105mm with fast AF lets you capture moving subjects even at distance. Crucially, the two focal lengths are included in one telephoto module, complete with Dual PDAF sensors. So when you switch between 70mm and 105mm, the focal lens unit and the AF lens unit work in unison to focus fast.
Stunning images every time
With four versatile lens options, the Xperia 5 III puts a huge variety of shots within your reach.
Object tracking locks on to fast-moving subjects

Create bokeh effects with basic mode
The Xperia 5 III makes it easy to capture striking images with artistic bokeh effects, adding another layer of creativity to your photography.
Experience Real-time Eye AF – for humans and animals
Real-time Eye AF lets you take stunning portraits, whether you’re photographing people or animals. Even if your subject is on the move or one eye is covered, you’ll capture memorable images full of energy and expression.
Fast access to key camera features
Choose new Basic mode for fast access to a range of easy-to-use photography features including a touch shutter button, portrait orientation, Bokeh effect, Panorama, and more.
