  • World’s lightest 5G smartphone (159g) with 5,000mAh battery[i] offering continuous video playback for approximately 34 hours[ii]
  • Newly equipped with front stereo speakers to enable content viewing with powerful sound

11th May 2023 – Sony today revealed the feature filled mid-range Xperia 10 V smartphone. Compact and lightweight, it is easy to carry everywhere yet boats best-in-class 5,000mAh battery, newly equipped front stereo speakers, a bright OLED display and a triple lens camera.

In addition to being equipped with a large-capacity battery capable of continuous video playback for approximately 34 hours, it has the world’s lightest body, realized in a slim frame that is easy to operate on the go with one hand. Plus, a tough display Corning® Gorilla® Glass Victus® for durability.

In terms of camera performance, it is equipped with a new image sensor that is approximately 1.6 times larger than the previous model[iii], enabling low noise shooting even in dark places.

Perfect for entertainment on the go

Whether you’re watching a movie or listening to music, stereo speakers at the front of the phone deliver powerful, balanced true stereo sound[iv].

In addition, the 6.1-inch, full HD+ OLED display is approximately 1.5 times brighter than the previous model[v], improving visibility outdoors. The TRILUMINOS® Display for mobile draws on Sony’s years of TV expertise to optimize the display for movie viewing; reproducing exquisite, vibrant images

Equipped with a 3.5mm audio jack, it also supports wireless transmission technology LDAC™ [vi], so you can enjoy high-resolution high-quality sound with both wired and wireless headphones. In addition, DSEE Ultimate™ [vii], which uses Sony’s proprietary AI technology, reproduces the sound source of the streaming service[viii] with high-quality sound equivalent to high resolution.

Beautiful snapshots made easy

Capture life to the full – made easy with Xperia 10 V. The camera uses scene, conditions and subject detection technology to automatically select the ideal settings for the best shot, so you don’t need to waste time choosing settings.

With a choice of three lenses on the rear camera (focal lengths[ix] 16mm (F2.2), 26mm (F1.8), and 54mm (F2.2)) a host of different shots are possible. In addition, the wide-angle lens is equipped with a new image sensor[x] that is approximately 1.6 times larger than the previous model, allowing more light to be captured and enabling clearer shooting in darker locations with less noise. Optical image stabilization makes it possible to take beautiful shots of difficult-to-shoot dark locations, scenes with large contrasts, and night scenes.

The hand shutter function on the front camera allows hands-free easy selfies by automatically releasing the shutter when you point your palm at the device.

Sony’s unique hybrid image stabilization (Optical SteadyShot™), which combines optical image stabilization and electronic image stabilization, enables video recording with less blur.

Light, tough and beautiful

Officially the world’s lightest 5G smartphone with 5,000mAh battery at 159g, it can offer a huge 34 hours (approx.) of video playback.

In addition to IP65/68 waterproof and dustproof performance, the display is durable thanks to Corning® Gorilla® Glass Victus® that is highly resistant to both drop and scratch performance.

Xperia 10 V comes in the same colors (lavender, sage green, white, black) as Sony’s latest fully wireless headphones WF-C700N (sold separately). So you can enjoy colour co-ordinating your smartphone and headphones when out and about, in addition to immersing yourself in music with the noise-cancelling performance of the headphones.

e-SIM support is conveniently offered and in addition to the built-in memory of 6GB (RAM) / 128GB (ROM), it is compatible with microSDXC[xi] up to 1TB, allowing you to store large amounts of content without costly cloud subscription packages.

For ease of use, Xperia 10 V is equipped with “Side sense” for quick shortcuts to apps and “21:9 Multi-Window Switch” that divides the screen into two sections so you can easily browse the web and watch a video at the same time using its full 21:9[xii] display.


The Sony Group has set an environmental plan “Road to Zero” aiming for zero environmental load by 2050. In order to achieve this, we are taking action while setting medium-term environmental targets in stages. As part of this mid-term environmental goals, we aim to completely eliminate plastic packaging materials for newly designed small products by 2025. Xperia 10 IV achieves zero use of plastic in the individual packaging.[xiii] It also uses Sony’s unique Original Blended Material for the product box and main tray which is made from bamboo, sugarcane fibres and post-consumer recycled paper[xiv]. In addition, SORPLAS™ has been used within a raw material for some elements of both the internal and external main body.


Style Cover with Stand for Xperia 10 VXQZ-CBDC

The Xperia 10 V has a colour matching optional cover with a built-in stand, convenient when watching videos on the front stereo speakers. This slim cover is designed to fit the shape of Xperia 10 V body combining ease of holding and functionality. It also uses Sony’s recycled SORPLAS™ as part of the raw material.


Xperia 10 V will be available in Lavender, Sage Green, White and Black from the middle of June onwards for €449/£399. *The release date, unit price and available colours will differ depending on the region and operator.
