New year, new Roman numerals for Sony. In 2021 we’re all anxiously waiting for the company’s IIIrd generation of its smartphones, and today one of these has been uncovered. It’s the Xperia 10 III, successor to the Xperia 10 II from last year, and virtually indistinguishable from it as you can see from the leaked renders below.
The Xperia 10 III will sport a 6-inch screen, and Sony is sticking with huge bezels all-round. The phone’s dimensions are said to be 154.4 x 68.4 x 8.3 mm (9.1mm where the camera bump is), and that makes it quite compact for this day and age. It’s also marginally shorter and narrower than its predecessor, but 0.1mm thicker. So, overall, you’ll be getting a very similar package.
The triple camera setup at the back is said to consist of a 12 MP main unit, an 8 MP ultrawide, and an 8 MP telephoto. Dual front firing speakers are still in, as is the 3.5mm headphone jack. The fingerprint sensor is once again embedded in the power button on the side.
According to a previous find, the Xperia 10 III should be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 690 5G chipset, which makes sense considering the 10 II also used a 6-series SoC – the 665.
That’s all we know for now about the Xperia 10 III, but it should become official in the next few weeks so we’re assuming there are more leaks about it on the way.
