You may have already seen the announcement of the new Xperia 10 and 10 Plus, two new devices in Xperia’s super-mid-range that offer premium Sony innovations, a sleek borderless design and our new 21:9 Wide display.
But with so many amazing features to explore, we wanted to give you a handy run-though of what these new smartphones have to offer.
See the world in 21:9
The Xperia 10 and 10 Plus feature a 21:9 Wide Full HD+ display and sleek borderless design, giving you the ability to stream new content the way the creator intended.
The stunning 21:9 display will enhance both entertainment and productivity, giving you the capability to run two apps simultaneously – great for those who want to keep an eye on emails while catching up on their WhatsApp messages.
Protected by Corning® Gorilla® Glass 5, the Android device has added durability without taking away from the beautiful metallic finish that complements the most comfortable hand-fit design yet.
Closer than ever
Now you can put your film-making skills to the test with the 21:9 Movie recording feature – ideal for creatives that want to capture eye-catching content on the go. Multi-aspect ratio allows you to alter the size of the image or video, whether that’s opting for 21:9 to capture more of your world or opting for 1:1 to create perfect Instagram pictures.
Both the front and back cameras of Xperia 10 and 10 Plus feature SteadyShot™ to capture blur-free videos, even while in motion. Use the dual camera on both devices to take your best photographs yet, (the Xperia 10 boasts 13MP + 5MP, and the Xperia 10 Plus has 12MP + 8MP). You can also get even more creative with your Xperia 10 Plus, which has an exclusive 2X optical zoom* allowing you to get closer to the subject.
You’ll also want to try out the artistic Bokeh effect to defocus the background of an image so that your subject stands out: a great way for budding photographers to take their digital imaging to the next level.
Bold, striking colours

While the Xperia 10 Plus is available in Navy, Black, Silver and Gold.
When you purchase your Xperia 10, make sure you also pick up a Style Cover Solid to protect your phone from damage with military spec durability.** You can also buy a Style Cover Stand, available for Xperia 10 and 10 Plus, to allow you to watch content hands-free.
Premium Sony innovations
Both devices feature Sony’s High-Resolution Audio and LDAC™ technology, ensuring the music’s sound quality is played in its truest form, even if you’re listening wirelessly!
Pair the brand-new open-ear Bluetooth® stereo headset, SBH82D, with your Xperia 10 or 10 Plus device: its wireless, behind-the-neck design fits comfortably for all-day listening.

What’s more, with the Xperia 10 and 10 Plus, you can now listen to your tunes with the restored subtleties of the original recordings, simulating the sounds of a live performance. Sony’s Digital Sound Enhancement Engine (DSEE HX™) does this by automatically upscaling your compressed sound files to near high-resolution quality, injecting life back into your most-loved tracks.
