Sony does not give up with its elongated mobiles, a characteristic that applies to any of its ranges, and we also saw it for its most recent proposal of the mid-range. Its availabilities usually take a while and today we finally know that the Sony Xperia 10 III arrives in Europe and we know its price, which was also a mystery.
This is the mobile that came along with the Xperia 1 III and the Xperia 5 III to complete the 2021 showcase (for now), remaining in a range below these. But, yes, maintaining design and support for 5G.

A “feather” weight that looks OLED on its front
Sony mobiles are differentiated by those proportions to which we alluded and the Xperia III maintains all the genetics responsible for this. In this case, in addition, it stands out that a weight of 169 grams more typical of what we consider light in this trend for large mobiles, as with the Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 5G.
It’s also well-protected, with IP68 certification for water and dust resistance and Gorilla Glass 6 on the side, as well as a fingerprint reader. On the front, we see the usual Sony frames (symmetrical) encircling a 6-inch OLED screen with FullHD + ** resolution, HDR support, and a standard 60 Hz refresh rate.
Telephoto by flag on triple rear camera
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 690 has been the processor of choice in this mid-range, giving it 5G connectivity through its modem and accompanied by 6 GB of RAM. Inside we also see 128 GB of storage (so there is a single version) and a 4,500 mAh battery.
The brand already explained that the terminal comes with Android 11 and an update of its Xperia Transfer application to transfer images, music, contacts, or messages from one mobile to another in a simple way, including iPhone. As for the audio sound, the Xperia 10 III has stereo sound, Hi-Res Audio compatibility, and DSEE Ultimate.
The triple camera of the Sony Xperia 10 III can stand out since, being a mid-range, they have not made a conformist decision, seeing that instead of a questionable useful lens and small sensor they have opted for a telephoto lens, not very common in this range.. In total it consists of:
- 12-megapixel main sensor with a 27mm lens and f / 1.8 aperture
- Wide-angle camera with an 8-megapixel sensor and 16 mm lens with f / 2.2 aperture
- 54 mm telephoto and f / 2.4 aperture with an 8-megapixel sensor.
- Front camera with 8-megapixel sensor and lens with f / 2.0 aperture.
