Announcement. Sony Xperia 10 IV is a modest upgrade in the mid-range

In addition to the flagship Sony Xperia 1 IV (news), Sonyannounced today a simpler smartphone, the Sony Xperia 10 IV. Very (by modern standards) small smartphone. In fact, a minor update of last year's Sony Xperia 10 III. We replaced the chipset with a slightly more powerful one, increased the battery capacity. Everything else is about the same.

Dimensions, of course, please. Six-inch screen and only 161 grams of weight. In principle, the smartphone is similar in size to the Samsung Galaxy S22, only it is shorter and wider, and Sonya is more elongated.

About the characteristics.

Popular fresh chipset Qualcomm Snapdragon 695. In AnTuTu we are waiting for four hundred thousand points. Or, if you're lucky, even a little more.

With memory, everything is as it was, i.e. relatively good. 6 GB operational, 128 GB permanent. There is support for memory cards, but keep in mind that the tray is hybrid.

The screen is six-inch (84 cm²).Baby, nowadays. But OLED. The refresh rate is standard, 60 Hz. The resolution for such a diagonal is indecently high, 1080 × 2520 (457 ppi). Features are very similar to those of its predecessor. Only, judging by official data, the maximum brightness of the newcomer is much higher.

The battery is good, 5000 mAh. Charging moderately fast, 30 watts. The charger, alas and ah, will have to be purchased separately. It is not included in the standard package.

The set of cameras seems to be very similar to the one thatused in the predecessor. At least in terms of module resolution - full parity. Only the main camera has optical stabilization. But how it works in reality is still unclear. There are three rear cameras in total - 12 + 8 + 8 MP (main module, telephoto lens with a double zoom, wide). Plus there is an 8 MP front camera.

As in the case of the flagships from Sony, they promiseexcellent sound quality. Like the flagships, there is IP68 water-dust protection and an NFC module. Like the flagships, despite the OLED screen, the fingerprint scanner is located on the side. And, yes, there is a normal audio output too.

And about money. €499 (₽35,500, $526) / £429 (₽35,800, $531) at launch in Europe and the Island, respectively.
