The flagship-tier Sony Xperia 5 III that was announced in April is finally available in Singapore, more than six months after.
Sony Xperia 5 III is now available at $1,499 for pre-orders (while stocks last) until Nov 28, 2021.
It starts shipping out from Dec 22, 2021 onwards - eight months after it was announced, although technically still "Early Summer 2021" depending on which side of the Earth's hemisphere you're standing on (editorial note: Flat Earthers, please do not send hate mail).
According to its pre-order page, the phone comes with a host of attractive bonuses, like its pair of Sony WF-SP800N true wireless noise-cancelling headphones for sports, a Wireless Fast-Charge Powerbank (model not specified), and a compatible phone case.
To recap, the Sony Xperia 5 III is the non-4K resolution version of its premium flagship alternative.
It has nearly everything else offered on the Xperia 1 III, like the same 5G support 4,500mAh battery capacity, key photography features, and Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 processor.
In case you're wondering, the Sony Xperia 1 III's pre-order page was live much earlier than the Xperia 5 III - which went out in July.
