At this presentation, the flagship smartphone Xperia 1 III is expected to debut, as well as the mid-range smartphone Xperia 10 III and possibly the compact Xperia Compact model.
More details about the Xperia 1 III have also surfaced today. According to the Chinese source ZACKBUKS, the flagship will be the owner of a camera with crazy characteristics. The camera will receive the following modules:
- 64MP wide-angle;
- 12MP ultra wide-angle;
- 12MP Periscope Cyber-shot with 60x zoom (probably hybrid).
According to the source, the periscope module is being developed by the Sony Cyber-shot division. However, if you do not assume that the 60x zoom is purely optical, then journalists and enthusiasts tend to believe that such a camera may turn out to be a reality.

Estimated price – $ 1,369 or a little more than 100 thousand rubles. The start of sales, traditionally for Sony, is noticeably later than the announcement – only in June.
