Sony’s mobile division has launched a new variant of the Xperia 10 III in Japan: the 10 III Lite. With the Xperia 10 III Lite, you should get a similar experience to the 10 III, but at a suggested retail price of 10 percent less. It is unknown if Sony plans to bring the phone to Europe.
Sony Xperia 10 III Lite
Sony released the third version in April From the Xperia 10 series. In the mid-range device from Sony, we saw support for 5G networks for the first time in the mid-range lineup. Sony used the Snapdragon 690 5G chipset for this. In addition, the Xperia 10 III received a 25 percent larger battery – with a capacity of 4,500 mAh – as well as an IP68 rating and Gorilla Glass 6. Sony’s Xperia 10 III Lite is based on this concept, according to the specifications list of the latest Lite version launched.
So in the specs list we find the same Snapdragon 690 5G chipset, the same 6.0-inch OLED display with Full HD + resolution and finally the same 4,500mAh battery. According to the specification list, the battery can be charged at 30W, the same as in the non-lightweight variant. Now you might be wondering what Lite is in Xperia 10 III Lite. The answer to this question lies in the available storage memory and SIM card configuration.
For the Xperia 10 III Lite, Sony has a set of 64GB memory chips on the head: half the storage of a regular Sony Xperia 10 III. Storage can still be expanded with a microSD card. In addition, you can only put a single SIM in the Xperia 10 III Lite, compared to the dual SIM functionality of more expensive farms. The last modification we find with the FM tuner; He has disappeared from the phone.
Exclusive to Japan?
All other specifications are the same as the original Xperia 10 III. Partly for this reason, the question is whether we’ll see the phone in Europe. In addition, Sony has silently launched the phone in the Japanese market, where the Xperia 10 III Lite is currently only available from telecom providers.
If Sony releases the Xperia 10 III Lite in Europe, it could be a death knell for the Xperia 10 III. Sony’s suggested retail price for the Lite version is 10 percent lower than the regular 10 III, which was converted to €365 (JPY 46,800).
