After launching the new Xperia range in April, Sony is finally making one of its latest devices available for pre-order. The Xperia 10 III is the first new model from Sony to be pre-ordered, although it is currently limited to Europe.
This year’s Xperia 10 III offers some notable improvements over the previous year’s model, with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 690 being the most significant of these. This brings 5G connectivity to Sony’s Xperia mid-range phone that wasn’t on last year’s model.
The Xperia 10 III also has a 4,500 mAh battery, which is a massive increase over the previous year’s capacity of 3,600 mAh. The charging speed has also been increased to 30 W, the storage capacity has been doubled to 128 GB and the 6-inch OLED display now supports HDR. In addition to its pretty colors, there is a lot to like about the Xperia 10 III.

To sweeten the pot, some retailers like Amazon are offering free over-ear noise-canceling headphones. They may not compare to some of the best noise-canceling headphones like the Sony WH-1000XM4, but they should do the job.
Now that the Xperia 10 III is available for pre-order, the chances are the Xperia 5 III and Xperia 1 III will soon follow suit. A retail listing for the Xperia 1 III suggested that the flagship may not ship until late August in the US, which sounds like an awfully long wait.
The Xperia 10 III costs £ 400 / € 430 and ships on June 11 in Europe. A US release has not yet been announced.
