As we have mentioned in our article about the Xperia 1, Sony where also announcing two other devices today at MWC19. These came in the form of the Xperia 10 and Xperia 10 Plus. These devices are lower tier devices than the flagship Xperia 1
The key feature that will differentiate the new Xperia Line up is the 21:9 aspect ratio of the display and this is also present on the Xperia 10 family of devices. It is, of course, FULL HD+ as well and the two screen sizes are 6.5″ for the Xperia 10 Plus and 6.0 for the Xperia 10.
Both the phones will feature a dual camera set up around the rear with the bigger phone getting a slightly higher spec of the camera than the smaller one. Theses cameras are 12 MP and 8MP for the Xperia 10 Plus and 13 MP and 5 MP for the Xperia 10. I both case the 2nd camera lens is being used to enable artistic Bokeh effect images As an added perk for going big with the Plus model you also get a 2x Optical Zoom to allow you get even closer to the action.
The cameras are also SteadyShot enabled to allow for blur-free video capture even when moving
Another feature that we expect to see with Sony as of late is high-quality audio and we are not left disappointed on this front again. Both the phones will feature Sony’s High-Resolution Audio with an LDAC embedded giving you a crystal clear audio experience however you listen to your music
As for power and longevity, the phones will both feature the Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 6XX series platforms with the Plus model running on the SD 636 and the smaller model running off the SD 630, As for the batteries again the Plus gets the bigger pack being a 3000 mAh with the standard size making do with 2870 mAh.
The phones will be available in Navy, Black, Silver for both with an option for Gold on the Plus and Pink on the standard model.
