Sony has announced the new Xperia 10 IV smartphone, developed around the concept of a large battery with the integration of Sony’s unique technologies, all in an ultra-lightweight, compact design. With improved performance, quality and portability, those looking for a mid-range handset can definitely consider the Xperia 10 IV.
Performance and Design
All-day battery and performance packed in a lightweight, hand-fit body. The Xperia 10 IV is the world’s lightest 5G smartphone to feature a large capacity – 5000mAh or more battery, giving all the power you need to enjoy using your Xperia 10 IV from dawn to dusk beyond. Thanks to Xperia Adaptive Charging, users have the ultimate battery life reliability, even after three years of use. This works by monitoring the battery whilst charging to ensure that it isn’t overworked – keeping the battery healthy for longer.
Weighing just 161g, the Xperia 10 IV is lightweight and easy to handle, whether you’re taking photos and videos, playing games, browsing, texting or calling. In addition to this, cutting the height and width of the bezel by 1mm creates a naturally comfortable 67mm width hand-fit design.
Designed for everyday use, the Xperia 10 IV has IP65/68 water and dust resistance plus Corning® Gorilla® Glass Victus® for its display. The tough Gorilla® Glass brings improvement in both drop and scratch performance. Snapdragon® 695 5G Mobile Platform can easily handle all your apps, movies, games and more, with high performance and power efficiency for superior connectivity.
Xperia 10 IV comes in 2 different colour options; Black and Mint.
Photos and videos made easy
With a triple-lens camera and a range of useful functions for stills and video, capturing life has never been easier. When you see a photo opportunity Xperia 10 IV helps you get the right shot for the first time Superior Auto which uses scene conditions and subject detection technology. Xperia 10 IV then automatically selects the ideal settings such as ISO and shutter speed for the best shot. With three different lenses – 16, 27, and 54mm, you have lenses for all types of shooting.
Shake-Free Photos and Videos by Advanced Blur reduction
When taking a photo, especially in the evening or in a low light scene, the slightest movement of your hand can cause the image to be blurred. But the Xperia 10 IV lets you take blurless images, even in low light conditions, thanks to Optical Image Stabilisation technology. It also allows a longer shutter speed to take a noiseless shooting, due to capturing more light. Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS) isn’t just for stills, it works for videos too. When you’re recording video on the move, unique Optical SteadyShot technology and hybrid image stabilisation ensure the results are less blurry and shake free.
Beautiful details in every shot & Less noise in low light
When taking photos in poor light, you get photos where bright areas are overexposed and dark areas completely blacked out, losing all the details of your shot. With the Xperia 10 IV, you can expect to shoot in HDR as it reproduces all detail in exceptional clarity. In addition, the improved night mode lets you shoot even clearer shots. Shooting at night or in low light, image quality can often be negatively impacted by visual noise. However, Xperia 10 IV has improved the image quality in night mode by utilising RAW data in its internal processing.
Modern smartphone cameras need to perform equally well, whether shooting stills or video. And thanks to an expanded dynamic range, the Xperia 10 IV captures video with remarkably clear detail and less whiteout or blackout, even in high contrast conditions like bright daylight.
Clear Close-ups & Stunning Selfies
Normally, when you’re shooting a subject in the distance using a smartphone’s telephoto lens, image resolution is compromised when you zoom in with digital zoom. But thanks to the super-resolution zoom feature on the Xperia 10 IV, you can shoot clear images even at long focal lengths. When you take a selfie, especially indoors or in poor light, conventional cameras automatically try to reduce noise, causing details such as hair, eyebrows, and eyelashes to be lost but again, the application of smart AI technology in Xperia 10 IV means that the selfies will be improved with clarity
The exceptional picture quality on high contrast OLED display
Boasting a beautiful 6.0” 21:9 wide OLED display, with no notch or camera hole to impair your view, the Xperia 10 IV lets you lose yourself in movies, games and more. Even 15% brighter while viewing than its predecessor model, the 21:9 wide OLED display reproduces breath-taking images with vivid colours and true blacks. Drawing on Sony’s many years of TV expertise, unique TRILUMINOS®DISPLAY for mobile, from Sony’s TV expertise, and video image optimisation enhances the display for movie viewing and reproduces exquisite, vibrant images.
The 21:9 screen easily divides into two sections, or one window pops up over another – perfect for browsing the web and watching a video at the same time. In Multi-window mode you can quickly switch between your last used and recommended apps – making it faster to find the app you want in the top and bottom windows.
Immerse Yourself in Premium Sound
Featuring a range of premium audio technologies, the Xperia 10 IV offers music lovers an exceptional listening experience. With High-Resolution Audio, you can plug in your favourite headphones via a 3.5mm audio jack and hear music that reproduces the full range of sound, with dynamics and detail just as the artists intended. High-Resolution Audio is available with even wireless headphones. LDAC transmits approximately three times more data (at the maximum transfer rate of 990 kbps) than conventional Bluetooth® audio, allowing you to enjoy High-Resolution Audio content wirelessly in exceptional quality, as close as possible to that of a dedicated wired connection.
Upgrade Your Music’s Sound Quality
DSEE Ultimate enhances the sound quality of your digital music. Working in real-time, it uses AI technology to reproduce the detailed acoustic subtleties and clear high-frequency sounds often lost during audio compression. It works with wired or wireless headphones, on local files and even streaming services. When the Xperia 10 IV is paired with Sony headphones, you can easily access the Sony Headphones Connect app using the Side sense menu – handy when you want to quickly adjust sound settings to suit your situation.
Upmix Stereo Music to Multi-Dimensional Sound
The Xperia 10 IV is designed for 360 Reality Audio to optimise sound quality when listening to music through headphones on Amazon Music, Deezer, nugs.net and TIDAL. 360 Reality Audio Upmix enables the Xperia 10 IV to mix 2-channel stereo tracks into an immersive sound experience through headsets, in real-time. The technology works with local audio files and streaming services to further enhance your listening experience.
Road to Zero
The Sony Group has set an environmental plan “Road to Zero” aiming for zero environmental footprints by 2050. As part of this, Sony has set a medium-term target from Fiscal 2021 to 2025 as “Green Management 2025” (GM2025). In GM2025, one goal is to “totally eliminate plastic packaging materials” in newly designed small products, and Xperia has so far reduced the use of plastic in packaging, eliminating plastic components or replacing them with paper materials. Examples include replacing plastic film lamination with abrasion-resistant varnish. As part of Sony’s sustainability drive, the packaging for the Xperia 10 IV uses no plastic, with plastic components either eliminated or replaced with paper materials. The box is approximately 50% slimmer than previous models with the charger and cable excluded from the box, optimising transportation efficiency.
The Xperia 10 IV in Black and Mint will be available at Sony Store retail shops and online stores from June 2022 at a recommended retail price of S$679. Customers who place a pre-order from now till 31 May 2022 will receive a WF-SP800N Truly Wireless Noise-Cancelling Sports Headphones worth S$299.
