Following the launch of it’s flagship Sony Xperia Mark 4 series smartphones last month, Sony is now back with a new model in it’s domestic market known as the Xperia Ace III. This model, as you can probably tell from it’s moniker, is a spiritual successor to last year’s Xperia Ace II smartphone.
Right off the bat, the new Sony Xperia Ace III builds around a 5.5” LCD display (w/ Gorilla Glass Victus) offering a HD+ screen resolution along with 60Hz refresh rate. To help with selfies and video calls, the phone also has a 5 megapixels front-facing camera that’s situated along it’s upper bezel.
Over at the back, the phone features a pill-shaped camera module which houses a single 13 megapixels main camera with f/1.8 aperture as Sony had ultimately decided to drop the 2 megapixels depth unit on the new model.
Under the hood, the Sony Xperia Ace III is powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 480 chipset which is definitely a nice upgrade over the MediaTek Helio P35 chipset used in last year’s Xperia Ace II. This will be supplemented with 4GB RAM and 64GB built-in storage that can be further expanded via a microSD card.
To keep it’s lights on, the phone is backed by a respectable 4,500mAh battery which doesn’t appears to carry any form of fast-charging solution. It will be shipped with the latest Android 12 OS right off the box.
Those who’re interested can pick the phone from two different colorways such as Gray and Blue. The phone will be priced at just 33,415 Yen (US$255) in the Japanese market for it’s 4GB+64GB trim.
