The Sony Xperia XA3 should not see the light of day. It would be a priori replaced by the Sony Xperia 10 and Xperia 10 Plus. A new name for a brand new format.
At Sony, mid-range smartphones come together under the banner of the Xperia XA range. And in this regard, we had recently discovered with surprise the supposed design of the Sony Xperia XA3: a 21: 9 screen with a single border.
This new format would not be the only size change made by the manufacturer in this segment. Recent rumors say that Sony Mobile is preparing to change the nomenclature of its mid-range products. Thus, the Xperia XA3 would never be marketed and it would be the Xperia 10 and Xperia 10 Plus that would be formalized at the MWC 2019 approaching.
This information has been corroborated by Roland Quandt of WinFuture. In this respect, we can admire renderings of the two phones side by side in addition to knowing some of the data sheets supposed.
The 21: 9 screen ratio is still relevant for both products. For the Sony Xperia 10, expect a diagonal of about 5.9 inches against 6.5 inches for the larger model. Each time the Full HD + is evoked, which would result in 2560 pixels on the length for 1080 pixels in width.
A Snpadragon 630 and 3 GB of RAM should run the Xperia 10 while the Plus version would be entitled to a Snapdragon 660 coupled to 4 GB of RAM. As for the internal storage space, it should be similar in both versions: 64 GB (expandable).
A double sensor of 13 + 5 megapixels is expected on the Xperia 10. This is a better definition than the camera of 12 + 5 megapixels tipped on the Xperia 10 Plus, but it would be entitled to a main sensor better quality (remember that the definition does not do everything in photo).
On both products, the photo modules seem relatively protruding.
Finally, if we do not yet know the battery capacity of the Xperia 10 Plus, the classic model would, for its part, entitled to a battery of 2870 mAh. On another topic, the audio should enjoy a Hi-Res quality on both smartphones.
According to WinFuture sources, the Sony Xperia 10 would cost 349 euros in Europe and it would cost 429 euros for the Xperia 10 Plus.
