Sony’s new Xperia 10 IV packs a massive 5000mAh battery and the Snapdragon 695 SoC

Sony is in a world of its own when it comes to Android smartphones – and that isn’t meant as a compliment. For the past few years, its flagship devices have been eclipsed by the competition, consistently offering much of the same, but coming in at a drastically higher price. While its strategy might seem baffling to most, it clearly has a consumer in mind when it builds and prices its products. With that said, Sony has announced a new mid-range handset to its line, the Xperia 10 IV.

The Xperia 10 IV builds on its predecessor, delivering a sleek design that also has some marked improvements. The Xperia 10 IV comes with a faster processor, a bigger battery, and it’s slightly lighter too. Its display also offers minor improvements, like 1.5 times more brightness than the Xperia 10 III. As for other changes, you can check out the complete details down below.
