The 4G compatible frequency bands are B1/3/4/5/7/8/12/13/17/18/19/21/26/28/38/39/40/41/42. The main frequency bands used in Japan are firmly suppressed. In addition, the installed memory has been increased from the carrier model’s 12GB to 16GB, and the storage has been increased from 256GB to 512GB.

Both are unified with 12.2 million effective pixels. In the “Xperia 1 III”, the telephoto camera, which was switchable between 70mm and 105mm, has an extended focal length and supports optical zoom.
