Alongside its flagship Sony Xperia 1 V, the Japanese company has announced its latest mid-range smartphone, the Xperia 10 V. It is the world’s lightest smartphone with a 5000 mAh battery on the market. The device weighs only 159g.
The Sony Xperia 10 V retains the Qualcomm Snapdragon 695 single-chip system, as well as 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of flash memory, like the Xperia 10 IV. Free space can be expanded using microSD memory cards.
The 1080p OLED display measures 6.1 inches, but Sony says it’s 1.5 times brighter than its predecessor. However, it still supports a frequency of no higher than 60 Hz, which seems strange even for mid-range smartphones in 2023. The screen is protected by Gorilla Glass Victus, but the back and frame are plastic.
The Sony Xperia 10 V features a 48-megapixel 1/2.0-inch optical sensor with 0.8µm pixels and an F/1.8 lens with optical image stabilization. The smartphone also received an 8-megapixel telephoto lens and an ultra-wide-angle model of the same resolution. Both are equipped with f/2.2 aperture lenses. There is another 8-megapixel camera on the front.
The Sony Xperia 10 V is powered by a 5000 mAh battery that promises to retain at least 80% capacity after three years. Charging power was not disclosed.
The smartphone received protection against water and dust IP65 / 68, a 3.5 mm audio jack with Hi-Res sound support and front stereo speakers.
The Sony Xperia 10 V will cost 450 euros in Europe and will go on sale in mid-June.
