Sony will launch a new generation of Xperia 1 III and Xperia 10 III two models soon. The first will be a new flagship smartphone with the usual “professional-camera-centric” approach. The second is a new mid-range smartphone and has just made its first appearance on the Geekbench benchmark.
The Geekbench results are on par with other SD765G-powered smartphones. It scores 601 in the single-score and 1,821 points in the multi-core department. The phone also comes with 6GB of RAM and runs Android 11 straight out of the box. The surprise here is to see a relatively-old chipset coming in this phone.
The chipset sports quite intriguing-Qualcomm Lito. For those unaware, this codename belongs to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G. It was the first Qualcomm mid-range chipset to come with a 5G modem. Usually, devices with it are more expensive than those with MediaTek Dimensity chips.
Geekbench benchmark test results show that this machine is not much different from other Snapdragon 765G models. Of course, it does not rule out the possibility of Geekbench recognition errors. Relatively speaking, the previous-generation Xperia 10 II used the 6-series platform Snapdragon 665. So, some sources said that this generation model may use the Snapdragon 690 5G chip.
In addition, the new generation of Xperia 10 III will include 6GB of storage. It is also a surprise for Sony’s mid-range models. Because the previous generation products only have a maximum of 4GB.
In contrast, the new generation of the Sony Xperia 10 III with larger storage space and stronger chips raises a new question. The question is whether Sony will stick to a relatively low price (about $350) or will relatively increase the price.
