Sony Xperia 10 III Lite is announced: Not for everyone.
Sony will offer a new version of its Xperia 10 III smartphone to Japan. The company today announced the Xperia 10 III Lite (via GSMArena). It will be available at several Japanese MVNOs starting August 27.
- The Sony Xperia 10 III Lite was just revealed in Japan.
- This phone has half of the storage onboard as the Xperia 10 III.
- The phone will go on sale on August 27th for JPY 46.800 ($425)
The main difference between the phones is the 64GB expandable onboard storage that the Xperia 10 III Lite has, compared with 128GB for the standard Xperia 10 III. There are some other differences. The Lite model will not have FM radio support, and it will only be sold as a single SIM smartphone. However, it will have an eSIM that can use to add another phone line.
Sony Xperia 10 III Lite is announced:
The hardware specifications for the Lite model are identical to the Xperia 10 III. Both models have a 6-inch screen with 6GB RAM, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 690 processor, and a 4,5000mAh lithium battery. They also come with Android 11 installed. The Lite version has the same hardware. It has a 12MP main camera, an ultra-wide camera of 8MP, an 8MP telephoto sensor, and a front-facing camera of 8MP. The phone also features a 3.5mm headset jack and a side fingerprint scanner. It is also IP65/68 waterproof.
The Xperia 10 III Lite is available in various colors, including white, pink, blue, and pink. Rakuten Mobile customers will only be able to purchase these two colors. Japan will sell the phone at JPY 46 800 ($425). If you buy it in Europe, the standard Xperia 10 III will cost JPY 51480 or EUR429 ($518). Although it seems unlikely that Sony will sell the Lite model in America, you never know.
