A vision to behold

Drawing on Sony’s world-renowned TV expertise, Xperia 10 III delivers an immersive cinematic experience thanks to its 21:9 Wide 6” notch-less OLED display that includes HDR support. Featuring TRILUMINOS display for mobile technology, found in BRAVIA TVs, and video image optimisation, the OLED display delivers incredibly rich, natural colours and deeper blacks. It is also capable of showing HDR content, which has a wider dynamic range of luminance than standard video formats, enhancing both contrast and colour. Bright parts of the image get brighter and the colour palette expands to show more bright blues, greens, reds, and everything in-between.

Triple lens camera enhanced for low light scene and moving object

Featuring ultra-wide, wide, and telephoto options, the triple-lens camera lets users capture a huge variety of shots – from landscapes to expressive portraits. The ultra-wide 16mm lens allows phone shooters to capture expansive imagery, expressing dramatic landscapes and full-scale scenery. The versatile 27mm lens is a wide lens that is ideal for a variety of shooting situations and low light scenes, whilst the 54mm telephoto lens allows users to get closer to their subjects – making it ideal for portraits.

Auto mode on Xperia 10 III now features animal detection, which can identify whether a subject is a dog or cat. It then adjusts the shutter speed and ISO Sensitivity accordingly to capture photos with less blur. The improved F1.8 lens and enhanced image processing algorithm allows users to take photos in low light with less noise, both in Night mode and Auto mode. When shooting in bright sunshine or in backlit conditions, Auto HDR helps prevent blackout in the shaded areas of the shot or whiteout in the bright parts, ensuring faces and expressions are more visible. When shooting in Burst mode, Xperia 10 III shoots at 10fps, ensuring subjects in motion are never missed and furthermore auto exposure works on every frame.

Finally, Xperia 10 III features 4K video recording, allowing users to shoot video with four times the resolution of Full HD and SteadyShot ensures smooth, shake-free videos even when recording on the move.

Made for multi-tasking

On the Xperia 10 III, Sony’s unique multi-window UI on the 21:9 wide display has been enhanced with a new Pop-up window feature. Perfect for multi-tasking, it lets users overlay one window with another. So they can quickly handle a task such as replying to a message, then get right back to the game they are playing or the website they are browsing.


Xperia 10 III is available with a new and improved antibacterial Style Cover with Stand. Designed with durability in mind, the cover features a built-in stand to support horizontal placement and provide a comfortable viewing experience. It is coated with anti-bacterial material that has a protection rate of up to 99.9% – preventing cell growth of specific bacteria to maintain cleanliness.


Xperia 10 III will be available in Black, Blue and White, and shipping with Android 11 from early Summer 2021.
