GR III in 1x1 Aspect Ratio view & the GR IIIx 40mm view

While considering a purchase of the GR IIIx a thought crossed my mind. Since I already have the GR III, would the use of the 1x1 aspect ratio on the GR III approximate (come close to) the view I would get with the GR IIIx? I readily admit my limited command in making technical comparisons like this, so any insights would be appreciated.

You can use 35mm digital crop on the GR3, can be assigned to the ADJ button to switch back and forth quickly

No, it really wouldn't work that was as you'd be composing vertically as well as horizontally. The closest analogue you're going to get on the GRIII is to use the 35mm and 50mm crop modes and figure it's in between those.
