Sony Singapore is offering one hot deal. For every purchase of the Sony Xperia 1 III, buyers will get a free Sony WH-1000XM4! Interested buyers can get either the black or the blue colors for the Xperia 1 III. Promo period is from July 26 to August 8, 2021.

The Sony Xperia 1 III retails for SG$ 1899 while the free Sony WH-1000XM4 originally retails for SG$ 599. Buyers can avail of this deal here.

Xperia 1 III

Sony’s 2021 flagship has power packed hardware. It rocks the latest Snapdragon 888 processor with 5G support and Adreno 660 graphics. It also boasts 12GB of RAM and comes in either 256GB or 512GB storage options.

The 4,500mAh battery may sound like it’s a lot, but Sony’s Adaptive Charging technology gives you the best of power and performance. They’re also promising a 3-year longer lifespan battery compared to conventional smartphone batteries.

It also supports Qi wireless charging and has IP65-68 water/dust resistance just like its predecessor.

The main draw is the Xperia 1 III‘s shooting capabilities. It has triple 12-megapixel cameras for its wide (f/1.7), ultra-wide (f/2.2), and telephoto (f/2.3-2.8) lenses, plus an extra 3D iToF Sensor. But another first in this list is Sony’s variable telephoto lens that supports 70-105mm focal length (equivalent to 2.9x and 4.4x zoom) that can zoom up to 300mm (12.5x) digitally.

Other than that, it’s also the world’s first smartphone that’s capable of shooting 20fps burst mode and has the new Real-time Tracking technology that can focus on moving subjects while shooting.

Sony WH-1000XM4

The Sony WH-1000XM4 is the latest iteration of its over-ear wireless headphones. It’s every bit as good as its predecessor with additional features like Multiple Device Pairing as well as Edge-AI and DSEE Extreme which more accurately rebuilds audio lost during digital compression for a full fidelity experience.

In our co-op review, we called it “The best choice as the premium, everyday headphones. It’s the perfect travel companion — that is, for when we can all actually travel again.”
