Key features

Cameras

The Sony Xperia 5 III 5G was co-developed with the engineers behind the latest Alpha 9 series cameras and with input from professional photographers, who helped fine-tune the technology and refine the photographic experience and results. Key features include fast autofocus in all three cameras, plus object tracking technology to maintain sharp focus on moving subjects. With four versatile lens options, the Xperia 5 III 5G puts a huge variety of shots within your reach. Capture striking images with artistic bokeh effects1, adding another layer of creativity to your photography. An optical telephoto lens up to 105mm lets you capture moving subjects even at distance. And now you can keep fast-moving subjects in sharp focus even if they temporarily move out of sight. Simply specify the subject you want to stay focused on by touching it on the display, and let object tracking do the rest.  

1This applies to basic mode only and 24mm, 70mm, and 105mm lenses. Some performance restrictions may apply.

1Optical SteadyShot™ is available on Photography Pro for the 24mm, 70mm and 105mm lenses. FlawlessEye™ is available on Photography Pro for the 24mm lens.

Created with fast-charging capability and high capacity, the latest generation of Xperia phones intelligently work to extend the life of your phone’s battery.

Durability

Your life is in your Sony smartphone - from streaming the latest songs to capturing those picture-perfect moments - and the Sony Xperia 5 III 5G and Xperia 10 III are built for maximum enjoyment and minimal worry. Both phones have an IP65/68 rating - they're water resistant and protected against dust, but all ports and attached covers should be firmly closed for full protection. They also shouldn't be put fully underwater.
