It's a big day for Sony Xperia fans, with the technology giant not only announcing the new Sony Xperia 1 III and Xperia 5 III, but the Sony Xperia 10 III as well. This latest update to the Xperia 10 series will be the first to offer 5G connectivity, plus a whole host of entertainment features that are designed to offer a great mid-range experience. 

The Sony Xperia 10 III will feature the Qualcomm Snapdragon 690 5G chipset and a 4,500mAh battery, which will offer 25% more capacity than the Xperia 10 II and is designed to remain healthy for up to three years of use. The Xperia 10 III will have IP65/IP68 water and dust resistance and use Corning Gorilla Glass 6.

With a 21:9 Wide 6" notch-less FHD+ OLED display, the Sony Xperia 10 III is designed to provide a fantastic cinematic experience – plus the DSEE Ultimate audio technology is designed to give high resolution audio quality as well.

Meanwhile, the Sony Xperia 10 III features a triple lens camera, including an ultra-wide 16mm, a wide 27mm and a telephoto 54mm option. The auto mode on the Xperia 10 III also features animal detection, which is apparently capable of identifying whether a subject is a dog or a cat. This is then able to adjust the shutter speed and ISO sensitivity accordingly. 

However, this isn't the only exciting camera feature on the Sony Xperia 10 III. It also has a burst mode of up to 10fps and 4K  video recording with SteadyShot for smooth, shake-free footage. Plus, the Auto HDR mode helps to prevent under- and over-exposure to ensure that key details are kept visible. 

The Sony Xperia 10 III will be available in Black, Blue and White with Android 11 from early Summer 2021. Discover more about this upcoming handset at the official Sony website
