    According to the Sony US site for the 1 III, it supports most of the sub6 and 2.5g 5g channels. It looks very good for T-Mobile support. No mmWave support but then that is likely not a big deal for many of us. I am very interested in the III as long as it is not priced higher than the 1II at about $1200. That puts it close to the S21 Ultra which is also on my list of potential phones.

    Will probably be my next phone. ALL "flagships" are overpriced so....this is the only one that has everything I desire in a phone. Headphone jack, front facing stereo speakers (360), fast charging (but not too fast which is better for battery), USA release and support (hopefully with warranty) fairly large battery 4500, NO, that is ZERO punch holes and notches, and a notification LED. Plenty of RAM and storage...expandable at that...and I don't even care about the cameras as I don't take many pictures. NO other phone even comes close for twice-the-price...whatever it ends up being!

    Agreed, it does look like a pretty convincing package. Especially the smaller version, because personally I'm starting to get a little sick of flagship spec phones that don't even fit in my pocket anymore.

    I just heard about it today and I’m very interested in it. My only concern is not knowing if it supports dual sims. I currently have the Pixel 4XL and I use the esim and physical sim.

    I just checked the Sony site and it says dual sim hybrid. Phone Arena says dual sim shared with sd.

    Thank you. This pretty much made my decision to get the mark iii. The specs look amazing and the camera too. Cant wait to preorder this.

    Samsung has DEX for desktop mode, does Sony have anything equivalent?

    Am not sure but if it is not there, then that's one thing I will miss moving to Sony from Note (Been a note user since Note 2) unless Android 12 has it enabled natively (hopefully). Since I have Sony A7C, am really excited for Xperia iii.

    In regards to USA carrier support, will it truly be supported as carrier sold and supported? If not, will it be getting carrier VoLTE support ?

    With no new note this year, I'm looking for 1 or 2 play devices.

    Just ordered a mi 11 Ultra and very interested in the 1 iii too.

    Nice one. Any news on release date there mate?

    Will see how much I like the mi11U first, but might wait a little after release to get the Sony. Depends on the offers here I guess.

    Between them I hope their cameras keep me interested enough until the next note is out.

    It's weird but from my experience with Sony the camera always left something to be desired.. Hopefully no longer the case.. Definitely looking good phone..

    No date revealed yet, Sony need to release their phones quicker. I've been thinking about the 11 Ultra myself but not quite convinced. I love Sony for their design, sound quality and clean android. Hopefully this phone will be the one where they deliver a top camera experience.

    Yip. Literally months between unpacking and release....... They do themselves no favours.

    I was just looking for something completely different from Samsung / OneUI for a bit. Although love both.
    Will keep the note for work until the next one comes.

    I'm keeping my N20U for work, so want a complete departure from Samsung for a bit.

    Long story short - ordered a mi 11 Ultra from China. Took 12 days to come. In those 12 days discovered from all those in UK that received before me all the CN ROM bugs. Now, I knew what I was getting into with the CN ROM. But unfortunately both Android Auto and Carrier Aggregation are broken on it. With no fix in sight.
    So , sold it without even opening it to a work colleague.

    To that end, I know have a UK OppoFind X3 Pro enroute to try.

    Which might well get sold when I can get a Sony 1 iii. .

    Too bad about the Xiaomi. I got the S21U yesterday and find it to be a step above my Note. Love the HW, camera also better at 10 x zoom, superwide, night and macro. Will keep it until the Xperia is available.

    Yip. Had a play with the S21U and it's a beast.
    Actually looking forward to trying a non oneui device for a bit.
    If I didn't have the note I would have went for for the 21.

    No Oppo's available here. Every other phone I could get would be a downgrade, don't want that. Hope that phone works well for you

    Haha. For sure.
    Really only s21U / N20U , Xiaomi 11U / X3 Pro / Sony 1 iii that interest me. The Samsung's are definitely the most complete out the bunch. But the quirks with the rest are where the fun is.
    Especially with having exynos here.

    Looking forward to pushing the cameras on the X3 Pro. Will get a new personal note whenever the next one is out.
    My 1note ready to be wiped and set up as a corporate device.....

    Currently using a Pixel 4XL, which has been great, but looking for the latest and greatest 5G phone.

    Even though I was considering the Note 20 Ultra or Galaxy 21 Ultra as my first 5G phone, I'm really not a fan of the Samsung's UI. Google uses their stock UI and I pretty much enjoy that for it's simplicity. I've looked into other Sony phones in the past and it seems Sony also uses the stock Android UI, not some bloated Sony custom UI.

    Based on the Russian video, looks like Sony will continue to use the stock Android UI. Hope this is true.
