Minimal Sony Xperia 10 V upgrades appear in supposed specifications leak

The purported specifications for the Sony Xperia 10 V have been leaked on the Weibo social media site (and later posted on Reddit). Although the machine translation of the Chinese text actually states “upcoming mid-range Xperia”, this would indicate news about the Mark 5 variant of the Xperia 10, especially when the specifications are taken into consideration. As previously reported, the Android smartphone will apparently sport a Snapdragon 6 Gen 1 SoC. Although this 4-nm chip has the same peak CPU clock speed as the 6-nm Snapdragon 695 (2.2 GHz), it comes with enhanced Wi-Fi speed support and can handle LPDDR5 memory at 3,200 MHz (695: LPDDR4x at 2,133 MHz) .

The leaker also describes the supposed Sony Xperia 10 V’s display, and it could easily be mistaken for the one in the Xperia 10 IV apart from a potential measurement difference. So, like its predecessor, the Xperia 10 V gets a 21:9 OLED with a 1080 x 2520 (FHD+) resolution. However, where the 2022 model has a 6-inch display, the 2023 variant will go all the way up to 6.1 inches. The minimal changes continue with the memory and storage configuration, with the 6 GB + 128 GB combination making a return. It is likely that Xperia fans would have liked to have seen a boost in this department at the very least.

Fortunately, there is another minimal upgrade to be found in the power specifications. The Sony Xperia 10 V will supposedly still be limited to a 30 W charging speed, like the Xperia 10 IV, but there is a small bump in the battery capacity: 5,150 mAh vs. 5,000 mAh. One the one hand, it’s hard to believe the full specifications for the Xperia 10 V have already been leaked considering it probably won’t appear before the second quarter of 2023. But on the other hand, it’s very easy to believe that Sony won’ t do much to change its mid-range Xperia model, with more focus perhaps lying on making the Xperia 1 V the Android smartphone to beat.
