Hi everyone 👋


September seems to be the month for new releases! And this time we have something extra special for you with the launch of the new Sony Xperia 5 III 5G. Order today and claim Sony headphones worth £249!


Speed and power made compact. From imaging to gaming, the Xperia 5 III is a hand-fit smartphone that goes above and beyond your expectations. With a triple camera setup for unlimited creativity.



Power in the palm of your hand

Looking at its compact size, you’d be forgiven for thinking the Xperia 5 III might compromise on features. But you’d be wrong. Behind the stunning OLED display, there’s a powerful Snapdragon™ processor and a long-lasting 4500mAh battery and a front-facing camera with Real-time Eye AF. Meanwhile, on the elegant mirror-effect glass back, you’ll find a versatile camera with four lens options, developed in partnership with the experts at Alpha and capable of shooting video at 120fps in 4K HDR. And it’s ready for O2 5G, so you can experience our 5th Generation network wherever there’s coverage.




Next-level gaming

Xperia 5 III comes pre-loaded with the smash hit arcade racing game, Asphalt 9: Legends. Even better, you’ll get an exclusive gift* of 1200 in-game tokens and 300,000 credits – together worth £100 – to boost your racing to the next level. Enhance your whole mobile gaming experience with the 120Hz refresh rate and 240Hz motion blur reduction for seriously smooth gaming. Get precision control with 240Hz touch scanning rate, and hear your opponents coming with Audio Equalizer.

*In order to receive 1,200 tokens and 300,000 credits, you need to obtain 10 flags in career mode in “Asphalt 9”.Gameloft will attempt to help you with any queries or problems that you may have with the game. To reach our customer support team, please contact us here.




A screen you’d expect from Sony

With its stunning 6.1" 21:9 CinemaWide™ HDR OLED 120Hz Refresh rate display, and no notches on the screen to interrupt your view, the Xperia 5 III is made for movie lovers, gamers and those who love to get creative with their images and videos. With Bravia® picture quality in your pocket, you’ll have a uniquely immersive viewing experience for all your entertainment, no matter where your adventures take you.


Sounds incredible

Immerse yourself in sound with 360 Reality Audio, which is tuned in collaboration with SonyMusic Entertainment to make you feel like you're right there with your favourite artists. New 360 Spatial Sound upmixes 2-channel stereo into an immersive sound experience. Enjoy incredible sound, either through your wireless or wired headphones (there’s a 3.5mm audio jack), or from the Xperia 5 III’s Full-stage stereo speakers.

Looks great - would be a great alternative to the Xperia 1 Mk3, if only it had wireless charging!!
