Apart from launching the Sony Xperia 1 IV flagship smartphone, the Japanese company also uncovered the Xperia 10 IV smartphone today. Compared with the previous generation, the appearance has not changed much. It has four color variants. But what we are more interested in changed referring to the internal hardware.
The Xperia 10 IV still sports a 6-inch 21:9 FHD+ resolution OLED screen. However, now, it uses a brighter Triluminous panel that Sony claims is 50% brighter than its predecessor. Moreover, the outer screen glass has been upgraded from Gorilla 6 to Corning Gorilla Victus protective glass. This is the latest generation of protective glass that is not afraid of scratches and falls.
Sony shortened the length of the Xperia 10 IV to 154 mm and the width to 67 mm while reducing the weight of the phone to 161 grams. Thanks to such characteristics, it is the lightest 5G phone on the market.
However, nothing prevented the company from putting a large battery inside the thin fuselage. We are talking about a 5000 mAh battery that supports a 30W fast charge (no charger is included).
in addition, the Xperia 10 IV upgrades the processor to the 6nm Snapdragon 695. If you remember, the previous generation model was packed with the 8nm Snapdragon 690.
The camera on the back is identical to the one we saw in the previous generation. Thus, it comes with a 12MP OIS main camera lens, an 8MP ultra-wide-angle lens, and an 8MP 2x telephoto lens. The front camera has an 8MP resolution. However, there are some new software additions such as Advanced Auto Mode, Auto HDR, a dedicated Night Mode, and AI-based face sharpening. Unfortunately, because of hardware limitations, the machine does not support 4K video recording.
Lastly, the Sony Xperia 10 IV has dual speakers, retains the 3.5mm headphone jack, and also supports LDAC, 360 audio, and audio functions that can convert stereo to surround sound. The phone has an IP68 protection level. It runs the Android 12 system.
The Sony Xperia 10 IV is available in a 6+128GB version and costs 499 euros. Our protagonist will go on sale in June.
