In the past couple of years, Sony has followed an unusual strategy of announcing phones without pricing and availability. The same applies to the recently announced Xperia 1 III but now we have our second hint at pricing for the top dog in Sony’s mobile division thanks to a listing in a Chinese online shop.
The 256GB storage is listed for CNY 8,499 ($1,313/€1,084) while the 512GB version will go for CNY 9,499 ($1,468/€1,212). These prices are more or less what we saw from the pre-order listings on Sony’s official web store in Russia. The Xperia 1 III will be announced on May 20 in China.
Check out our Hot take on the new Xperia lineup and do let us know what you think of the pricing on Sony's latest flagship.

Sony might be doing a tad better than LG now but it's not by much. They are still horrific at running their mobile division and making the right choices.
