The Japanese smartphone manufacturer is already rolling out the latest Android 10 to its newest mid-range Sony Xperia 10 lineup.
Over a year after the release of the Xperia 10 and Xperia 10 Plus, Sony has now started seeding what appears to be the phones’ most significant update in months.
Android 10 with March security patch
According to some Russian Xperia 10 and Xperia 10 Plus owners, Google’s latest Android 10 is now rolling out in their devices. The stable version update has arrived with software version 53.1.A.2.2.
Additionally, the update is confirmed to be only available for single SIM and dual SIM models of the Xperia 10 lineup in Russia. Other regions in Europe are also thought to be part of the update.
There is no official changelog that is associated with the latest Android 10 update. The newest software version, however, comes with a March security patch.
While the Android 10 update for the Sony Xperia 10 series is welcoming, the rollout may have come a little too overdue. Note that Sony’s flagship Xperia 1 and Xperia 5 both picked up the update back in December 2019. Nevertheless, it’s better late than never.
Sony’s most cohesive mid-range duo
The Sony Xperia 10 and Xperia 10 Plus offer similar features. These include 64GB of onboard storage, a side-mounted fingerprint sensor, and the familiar 21:9 aspect ratio. An IPS LCD display and a headphone jack are also their shared features.
The mid-range phones also boast an SD card slot, USB Type-C, and NFC. Both phones also boast Corning Gorilla Glass 5 on their front panels and dual rear cameras around their back.
The primary difference between the two lies in the hardware department. The Xperia 10 Plus is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 636 platform, while the vanilla Xperia 10 features a slightly less powerful Snapdragon 630 SoC.
Android 10 key features
A noted upgrade the Sony Xperia 10 and Xperia 10 Plus received relative to the newest Android 10 update include the system-wide dark mode. Improved gesture navigation and smart replies are likewise in the mix.
The Android 10 update on Sony Xperia 10 and Xperia 10 Plus is being rolled out in a staggered approach to ensure a seamless seeding.
