In 2020, the trend of integrating 5G technology becomes extremely popular among mobile phone companies. Sony alone has launched its first two lines of 5G smartphones, the Xperia 1 II and the Xperia 5 II – both flagship phones. However, it is not until the end of this year that we will get information about the first 5G smartphone in the mid-range segment, which will be the Xperia 10 III. In a highly competitive segment, does the Xperia 10 III really stand out? Let’s take a look at the leaks about the Sony Xperia 10 III.
Sony will continue with the elongated design that has branded the Xperia 10 III
Referring to Sony phones, it is difficult to ignore the most conspicuous identifying feature, which is its elongated body shape that is much longer than any other competitor. And according to the GSM Arena, the Xperia 10 III will have a similar design to its predecessor, the Xperia 10 II. In my opinion, this is good news for Sony believers, because the characteristic elongated design and metal material will bring a luxurious and elegant look to the Xperia 10 III series.
This length also allows the phone to carry a unique display – a 21: 9 OLED display, with FullHD + resolution and up to 120 Hz refresh rate. This is the aspect ratio of the screen to give you the perfect movie viewing experience. Combined with Sony leaving a thicker top edge to accommodate the front camera, your viewing angle won’t be entangled.
However, the downside of this screen is that it is sometimes difficult to operate with one hand, it will feel quite necessary in the pocket of your pants if used unfamiliar. And unlike the movie watching experience, you will see two big black bands on both sides when watching videos on Youtube. But I firmly believe these limitations will not prevent Sony fans from falling in love with this phone.
The configuration of the Xperia 10 III will not be too impressive, but you will not be able to ignore the 5G technology and the new camera cluster
According to leaker Nodar Sikharulidze, Sony will launch two phones with Snapdragon 875 (Snapdragon 888) and Snapdragon 690 chips. With the Xperia 10 III in the mid-range segment, it is not difficult to deduce it will be equipped with a compatible chip. Snapdragon 690, the other chip expected to appear on the Xperia 1 III.
This is a chip that performs slightly less than the Snapdragon 750G, but with the built-in X51 modem it will allow the phone to connect to 5G networks. In addition, the Adreno 619L GPU will help the phone display smoothly and beautifully at a resolution of 1080 x 2520 pixels and a refresh rate of 120 Hz.
In addition, according to Nodar, the next generation Xperia 10 will have ‘more than 4 cameras’, which will be a big step forward for the slightly conservative triple rear camera cluster from Sony. With at least 5 cameras, the Xperia 10 III shooting experience promises to be very desirable.
Xperia 10 III will soon be launched alongside its brother Sony in another segment
If Sony keeps the annual schedule, then the Xperia 10 III is expected to be released in February 2021, at the same time as the Xperia 1 III and the Xperia L5 (in the low-cost segment). These will be the cards to help Sony compete on all three segment fronts. However, the way to conquer the smartphone market of Sony is still a long way when most of the market share is in the hands of major manufacturers in the US, South Korea and China.
And those are the leaked information to the present time of the Xperia 10 III, do you find the upcoming mid-range smartphone from Sony attractive enough? Is there anything Sony needs to improve to conquer users? Please leave your comments in the comments.
