The Xperia 1 II flagship and Xperia Pro professional tool were were the stars of today’s Sony event, but the Xperia 10 II (pronounced Xperia Ten Mark Two) might well become the best seller.
The phone brings an efficient Snapdragon 665 chipset (4GB RAM, 128GB storage), three cameras (ultrawide, regular and telephone) and the biggest battery of any Sony mid-ranger to date.
The Xperia 10 II packs a 6” OLED panel with a 21:9 CinemaWide ratio and Full HD+ resolution.
It has an 8MP ultrawide angle shooter with 16mm focal length equivalent, a 12MP main snapper with PDAF and an 8MP 2x telephoto shooter, all lined vertically in the upper left corner.
The front-facing camera has an 8MP senor and is placed in a waterdrop notch in the center of the screen.
Sony proudly announced the Xperia 10 II is about 10% lighter than its predecessor Xperia 10 despite being slightly wider and taller. The battery is 3,600 mAh which is over 25% more than last year’s model. There is also Xperia Adaptive Charging that adjusts levels of power going to the cell so it prolongs the live of your battery.
Despite the increase in battery capacity, Sony managed to keep the Xperia 10 II slightly thinner than its predecessor. It is also water and dust tight with IP65/68 rating and has the latest Gorilla Glass 6 on the front and back.
The Xperia 10 II is scheduled to arrive in the second quarter of the year, but its exact price is yet to be confirmed.
