And in amongst the onslaught of foldable phones, 5G-enabled handsets and smartphones with five cameras, the Tokyo-based company has brought something truly unique. The Xperia 10 is the smaller device with a 6-inch 21:9 LCD display offering a Full HD+ resolution, while the Xperia 10 Plus has the same screen but bumps the size up to 6.5-inches. Media content in the 21:9 aspect ratio can be found in apps like Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, and YouTube while games like Asphalt 9, Fortnite, and Arena of Valor have all worked with Sony to efficiently utilize this new screen ratio. Clocking in at 6 inches on the regular and 6.5 on the Plus, the Xperia 10's are long, slender devices with very slim bezels everywhere but up top - a trend we're glad to see improving and proliferating across Sony's mobile lineup.

Sony enthused over the wide-screen format also benefitting split-screen multi-tasking and shooting, too. Tapping on the app, you'll then have to pick two apps from the homescreen to run simultaneously. The handset features a 5.7-inch HD+ display with Gorilla Glass 5 on top of it. But the display is only half the story. As we expected and knew thanks to the leaks, the Xperia 10 series has a big "forehead", complemented by a borderless design on the other three sides. What's more, with handsome Bokeh for portrait shots, you'll find an impressive dual camera system on both Xperia 10 and Xperia 10 Plus for incredible clarity in every shot - not to mention powerful 2x optical zoom on Xperia 1 & Xperia 10 Plus. You can also record videos in 21:9 as mentioned above. While the regular uses its dual-shooters only for bokeh modes, the Plus offers one of the few step-ups, with the ability to do optical zoom, as well as bokeh modes.

Like numerous flagship phones this year, the Xperia 1 runs Qualcomm's Snapdragon 855 mobile platform and ships with Android 9 Pie. The Xperia 10 Plus gets 4GB of RAM.

All three of the new Sony Xperia models offer microSD expansion up to 512GB and they all run Android 9 with Sony's software over the top. The Xperia L3 should be available in stores already in single SIM and dual SIM versions, although prices haven't been unveiled.

After 3rd period rally, Reds Wings fall in OT | NHL
Athanasiou scored at 5:23 of the third period on the power play, lifting a shot near the post over Ward's right shoulder. If the season ended after Wednesday's 5-4 overtime victory over the Red Wings , the Hawks would be a playoff team.

Mitsuya Kishida, president of Sony Mobile Communications, said Sony had a rich heritage of meeting the technological demands of professional filmmakers in both sound and vision.

In Creator mode (inspired by Sony's pro Master Monitor colour reproduction technology), the 10-bit colour display (8-bit with 2-bit smoothing) claims a 1000,000:1 contrast and support for BT.2020 colour gamut for wider, more accurate colour reproduction - all powered by Sony's X1 for mobile processor.

Xperia 10 and Xperia 10 Plus are available to buy today, February 25, 2019 from all major United Kingdom operators and retailers, including EE, Vodafone, O2, Carphone Warehouse, Virgin, Sky Mobile, and Tesco. Customers buying SIM-free will also receive a free pair of Sony Bluetooth wireless headphones (WI-C300) in black worth £50.
