Sony Xperia phones

Ever since the release of their transistor radio, Sony has followed a singular vision – to entertain. They’ve poured 70 years of entertainment technology into their smartphones, and their latest releases maintain that tradition. Sound quality, screen definition, and camera resolution are all essential features in the Xperia range.

Sony Xperia 10 IV

The Xperia 10 IV is the world's lightest 5G smartphone to feature a large capacity 5000mAh battery¹. Featuring IP65/68 water and dust resistance², you can use it worry-free. The Xperia 10 IV display uses Corning® Gorilla® Glass Victus®, the toughest Gorilla® Glass yet – with improvement in both drop and scratch performance. Taking beautiful photos and videos couldn’t be easier – even in low light – with a choice of ultra-wide angle 16mm, wide-angle 27mm, and telephoto 54mm lenses. Even brighter than the previous model, the 21:9 wide OLED display captures breath-taking images with vivid colours and true blacks. Enjoy high-resolution audio, with either wired or wireless headphones³. and upgrade your music's sound quality with DSEE Ultimate. Working in real time, it uses AI technology to crisply sound out the subtler audio elements and high-frequency sounds often lost during audio compression – even on streaming services⁴.

Key features

Cameras

The Sony Xperia 5 III 5G was co-developed with the engineers behind the latest Alpha 9 series cameras and with input from professional photographers, who helped fine-tune the technology and refine the photographic experience and results. Key features include fast autofocus in all three cameras, plus object tracking technology to maintain sharp focus on moving subjects. With four versatile lens options, the Xperia 5 III 5G puts a huge variety of shots within your reach. Capture striking images with artistic bokeh effects¹, adding another layer of creativity to your photography. An optical telephoto lens up to 105mm lets you capture moving subjects even at distance. And now you can keep fast-moving subjects in sharp focus even if they temporarily move out of sight. Simply specify the subject you want to stay focused on by touching it on the display, and let object tracking do the rest.  

¹This applies to basic mode only and 24mm, 70mm, and 105mm lenses. Some performance restrictions may apply.

Capture scenes born in the studio

Record movies with the same parameters and colour settings as the professionals, thanks to expertise from Sony Digital motion picture camera engineers.

The Xperia 5 III 5G features the very latest Optical SteadyShot™ with FlawlessEye™¹, which couples the image sensor's increased reading speed with Sony's original algorithm for optical image stabilisation. The result is supremely smooth, shake-free video footage.

¹Optical SteadyShot™ is available on Photography Pro for the 24mm, 70mm and 105mm lenses. FlawlessEye™ is available on Photography Pro for the 24mm lens.
