Sony Xperia 10 IV product details

The Sony Xperia 10 IV is the slightly more affordable alternative for owning a Sony Xperia phone. The device features an excellent screen and a triple Sony camera system

One-of-a-kind Sony

In recent years, Sony has profiled itself as a brand for content creators. This resulted in high-end smartphones with specific features for those users and an exceptionally high price tag. Fortunately, for the common man, there is the Xperia 10 series. With this Xperia 10 IV, announced in 2022, you get a full-fledged Xperia phone that still has some special Sony techniques. One of them is the screen. Sony applies a somewhat unusual screen ratio of 21:9. Which results in a slightly stretched screen, but therefore ideal for watching movies. Sony does not go along with the trend of punch-holes or notches. This means that there is some extra space at the top and bottom of the screen. It looks a bit old fashioned but the screen is uninterrupted by this.

Durability first

Big plus of this Xperia 10 IV is its 5000mAh large battery. Spacious but not unique. Still, thanks to its many power saving features, it provides it with a long battery life of several days. What helps is that the screen cannot show more than 60Hz and the Snapdragon 695 processor is not a power eater. Because it is not a speed monster but rather economical that results in a long battery life for you. Although Sony prefers to use the word "durable". This is also underlined by the nonuse of plastic in the packaging and the omission of a charger. Even a cable is missing. And by making the casing waterproof, it lasts longer. At least, that is the intention

Main Sony Xperia 10 IV specifications

  • Stretched 6" OLED screen with 21:9 ratio
  • 12+8+8MP camera system with 120° ultra-wide angle, 54mm telephoto lens and 1080p video recording
  • 8MP selfie camera above the screen with HDR, SteadyShot and portrait mode
  • Midrange Snapdragon 695 processor with 5G support
  • Decent 6GB of RAM memory, 128GB of storage (expandable up to max. 1TB)
  • Waterproof IP65/68 Gorilla Glass Victus casing
  • 3.5mm headphone port with Hi-Res Audio and 360 Reality Audio
  • Large 5000 mAh for long battery life

Features Sony's camera technologies

On the camera front, Sony has adopted a triple-lensed system at the back. The primary camera features a 27mm wide-angle lens and 12MP large Xperia R sensor. The automatic mode of this is especially useful. Thanks to its speed, it is capable of shooting a suitable picture in almost any tricky situation. Things like ISO and shutter speed are set automatically for the best result. You also get access to an 8MP ultra wide-angle for landscapes and an 8MP telephoto of 54mm to optically zoom in 2x. This is indeed a limited zoom range but the fact that you get a telephoto lens for this amount is already very neat. In addition, you get optical image stabilization, Sony's famous HDR mode and various camera effects.

Sony unveils Xperia 10 IV; more affordable Sony gets bigger battery

Phone news ·

Sony doesn't make a lot of phones anymore, and most of them are then also hugely premium with an accompanying price tag. The Xperia 10 series is the odd one out, and this Xperia 10 IV is the latest. Affordable with still a lot of Sony technology inside. This time with a larger battery.

The Xperia 10 IV is not even that different from its predecessor; the Xperia 10 III. For example, there's still a 6-inch OLED screen with an elongated 21:9 ratio. And the triple camera (12+8+8MP) has also remained the same on paper.

The new Xperia 10 IV

The battery is different; its capacity increased from 4500 to 5000 mAh. Remarkable is this does not increase the weight. On the contrary, it even decreases, making the Xperia 10 Mark 4 a lightweight phone of just 161 grams.

Triple camera

The camera system of the Sony Xperia 10 IV consists of three cameras as mentioned above; a 12MP primary camera with a 27mm wide-angle lens, an 8MP ultra-wide-angle (16mm), and an 8MP telephoto camera for 54mm zoom. These provide Sony with various features, including filters, backlight correction, and a night portrait mode. In addition, optical image stabilization is added to shoot sharp pictures even in dark situations.

Sony prepares Xperia 10 IV release, images already available

Phone news ·

Sony is preparing a successor to the Xperia 10 III. The Xperia 10 IV is very similar to its predecessor with almost the same appearance and dimensions. Only the sides are expected to be flat.

Flat sides are totally trendy right now so Sony is also moving in that direction now. Furthermore, Sony does not seem to have made things very difficult for itself, because in terms of appearance, this Xperia 10 IV is very similar to its predecessor; the Xperia 10 III.

The display measures 6 inches diagonally just as before and there are 3 different cameras on the back. The fingerprint scanner is still found on the side and dual speakers with a separate input for your headphones are still expected. What processor the Sony Xperia 10 IV uses, how much memory and how large the battery is we do not know. The source does make an educated guess but we don't find it very reliable as of yet.

Unknown source, yet trusted origin

So why are we publishing the images anyway? Because the renders come from @Onleaks, who usually shows reliable renders of unannounced phones. This Steve Hemmerstoffer sells his images to the highest bidder and that was this time

When Sony will officially announce the Xperia 10 IV we unfortunately do not know yet. We won't be surprised if that happens soon.
