Sony Xperia 10 III appears on Geekbench with a Snapdragon 765G chipsetFebruary 15, 2021
Sony is expected to bring the Xperia 1 III and the Xperia 10 III very soon. The midranger has now appeared on Geekbench with a somewhat surprising chipset – the Qualcomm lito, better known as Snapdragon 765G.
The SoC might be hidden behind a moniker, but the Geekbench results align with other SD 765G-powered devices. What is more surprising is that Sony will go for the relatively old 5G chipset, rather than the previously rumored Snapdragon 690 5G – after all, the Xperia 10 II also went for a 6-series platform – the 665.
The Geekbench listing also revealed the new Xperia 10 III will have a 6GB RAM option, which will be a first for the midrangers – both predecessors maxed out at 4GB. Having more storage and a faster chipset raises the logical question of whether the new phone will stick to a relatively low price tag of around $350 or will come with an increased price.
