Sony’s latest mid-range handset, the Xperia 10 III is now available to pre-order ahead of its 10 June release.
The phone upgrades last year’s Xperia 10 II in a few keys ways, most notably with 5G connectivity thanks to the Snapdragon 690 5G chipset. It’s also the first Xperia 10 phone with 5G.
The 690 chip is the same one powering the budget OnePlus Nord N10 5G. While OnePlus’s handset offers a larger 6.49in IPS screen, the Xperia 10 III outdoes with an OLED display with HDR support, Gorilla Glass 6 protection, and IP65/68 water and dust resistance. The Xperia 10 III also packs a 4500mAh battery, which Sony promises should last 3 years. Here’s our deep dive into just what to expect from the 10 III.
