Sony Introduces Xperia 10 and 10 Plus Mid-Rangers w/ 21:9 Displays at MWC 2019
Today during MWC 2019, Sony unveiled two new mid-range smartphones that take after the company’s latest flagship, the Xperia 1. Called the Xperia 10 and Xperia 10 Plus, the new devices offer ultra-tall displays with decent specs and cameras.
Beginning with the screens, the Xperia 10 and 10 Plus offer 6-inch and 6.5-inch Full HD+ displays with 21:9 aspect ratios. This is the tallest aspect ratio we’ve ever seen ship on a phone, so if you buy either of these devices, expect a form factor that more resembles a candy bar over, say, a brick.
In terms of the specs, the Xperia 10 packs a Snapdragon 630 processor with 3GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, and a microSD card slot. There’s also a side-mounted fingerprint scanner, dual 13MP and 5MP rear cameras, Android Pie, and a 2,870mAh battery.
On the other hand, the Xperia 10 Plus is a bit more powerful with a Snapdragon 636 processor, 4GB of RAM, and the same 64GB of storage, expandable via microSD card. You get a 3,000mAh battery in this case along with dual 12MP and 8MP rear cameras, Android Pie, and the same side-mounted fingerprint scanner. So while there isn’t much to get excited about, the Xperia 10 series phones seem like solid overall packages.
The Xperia 10 will start at $349.99 and the Xperia 10 Plus will cost $429.99. Both phones will launch on March 18th in the United States. Other countries should also receive the phones at some point in the future.
