Sony has officially announced a new mid-ranger smartphone dubbed as the Xperia 10 III Lite in it’s home market. Despite it’s new moniker, this device is based largely upon the current Xperia 10 III, except for some minor differences that include a toned-down memory configuration and support for eSIM functionality.
The Sony Xperia III Lite features a 6” OLED display which arrives with a FHD+ screen resolution, 60Hz refresh rate. HDR10 support, as well as an 8 megapixels selfie camera. The phone as usual, comes with an unique 21:9 aspect ratio.
Around the back, the device sports a triple-camera setup housed within an elongated camera island. These cameras include a 12 megapixels main camera, an 8 megapixels ultra-wide camera, as well as an 8 megapixels telephoto camera.
Under the hood, the Xperia 10 III is powered by a 5G-ready Snapdragon 690 chipset which is paired with 6GB RAM and 64GB onboard storage which can be further expanded via a microSD card. To keep its light on, the device draws power from a 4,500mAh battery with 18W fast-charging support.
Other than that, the phone also comes with a 3.5mm headphone jack, side-mounted fingerprint scanner, eSIM support, as well as IP65/ 68 rating for dust and water resistance.
Those who’re interested can pick up the new Sony Xperia 10 III Lite in four different colorways including Black, White, Blue, as well as Pink. Pricing-wise, the phone will set you back by 46,800 Yen (US$425) for it’s sole 6GB+64GB variant.
