Sony today announced the launch of two new phones, the Xperia 1 III and Xperia 5 III, the latest Sony products to redefine the Xperia brand as the companion of the popular Alpha digital camera.

The additional zoom is due to the folding periscope lens design. Xperia actually moves the lens elements to achieve different focal lengths.

These phones can take pictures at 20 frames per second while focus and exposure values ​​are at 60 fps. It also supports 4K HDR at 120 fps.

It also has an autofocus function for eye tracking and a real-time tracking function for this autofocus. In a demo, Sony showed a target by rotating and adjusting the camera with the eyes in focus. Visible again.
