Xperia 1 III impresses in independent tests

In independent testing by GameBench Labs, the Xperia 1 III achieved the coveted “Ultra” badge for its Display refresh rate and Touch latency when playing Call of Duty®: Mobile. This badge indicates that the playing experience would satisfy the most demanding gamers, such as hardcore competitive gamers or eSports pros.

Engineered to keep you one step ahead

In first-person shooter (FPS) games in particular, every piece of visual and audio information about your opponent is vital – and the Xperia 1 III gives you more than ever before. Responding to the demands of pro gamers, we've focused both on the quality of images and sound and the ability to customise them. So you can enhance your gameplay and notch up more victories.

Finding your opponent before they find you is key to victory. So the Xperia 1 III lets you adjust display settings like brightness balance to reveal enemies and objects that might otherwise be hidden in dark scenes. It also lets you preset colour and brightness for specific game stages or to help read maps more easily in challenging environments.

Customisable audio helps you outsmart your opponents

In gaming, what you hear can be just as important as what you see. So the Xperia 1 III lets you use the audio equalizer to minimise unnecessary sounds and focus on the ones that matter – from an opponent’s approaching footsteps to the sound of a pin being pulled out of a grenade. The Xperia 1 III also features enhanced voice chat function so you can communicate more clearly with your teammates.

Make every touch count
