Sony teases Xperia 1 III name in trailer video ahead of April 14 event
The Sony Xperia 1 III name is almost confirmed
In a minute-long event trailer video posted to the brand’s official YouTube channel, Sony hinted in a not-so-subtle way at the Xperia 1 III (pronounced Xperia 1 Mark 3) branding several times.
The video starts off by displaying the word ‘Three’ in different languages. It then transitions to showing three hands in the air; the first has one finger pointing up, the second has two, and the third has — you guessed it; three.
Some dark shots of what’s presumably the Xperia 1 III follow, although they barely reveal anything, along with the words ‘Coming Soon.’ Of course, this is a teaser video, so the ‘o’ in coming soon has been replaced with the Roman numerals for the number 3 — III.
What to expect from the Xperia 1 III flagship
Unsurprisingly, Sony hasn’t officially confirmed any details about the Xperia 1 III, but leaked renders suggest it’ll build upon the design of the previous-gen model. There are also reports of a periscope camera and a 120Hz display.
As for the internal side of things, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 888 will almost certainly sit at the heart of the phone. A minimum of 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage could be in the pipeline too, in addition to the usual microSD card support.
