Sony has left things very vague about the prices and availability of the company's latest "super mid-range" smartphones, but soon after the Xperia 10 and 10 Plus were unveiled at MWC 2019 in Barcelona, the smaller variant has increased for Stateside pre-ordering. Unsurprisingly, the larger model has followed suit, and now both are available at a number of authorized retailers in unlocked versions at $ 350 and $ 430 respectively.
Perhaps more exciting is that any confusion around US carriers offering support for the Sony Xperia 10 and 10 Plus has been eradicated as both extra medians are now listed as Verizon certified on the Web page. open development of Big Red. It does not seem very serious, but it's sort of for Sony. We are not talking about Samsung, LG or Motorola, which are brands that regularly sell certified handsets for use with the country's four major wireless service providers.
In fact, the Xperia 10 and 10 Plus join a tiny group of semi-recent Sony phones compatible with Verizon. The group was previously a duo, including only Xperia XA2 and XZ2 Compact. The Xperia XZ2 "classic", the XZ2 Premium, the XZ3 or even the XA2 Ultra and the XA2 Plus do not arouse any love. Not surprisingly, it's far too early to know anything about the high-end Sony Xperia 1.
To return to the Sony Xperia 10 and 10 Plus, it is important to note that this certification does not mean that you can actually purchase the devices directly from the largest operator in the country. But you can get them at Best Buy, B & H Photo Video or Amazon (shipments in a few weeks), then activate them with Verizon, as well as at AT & T, T-Mobile and many other GSM operators.
The main selling point is undoubtedly the cinematic content consumption experience offered by the 6 and 6.5 inch screens of 10 and 10 Plus. Both share an unusual 21: 9 aspect ratio and a decidedly high-end design language that combines glass materials with a metallic finish, but otherwise they are quite different. The huge size version has a faster processor, a larger battery, more memory and better cameras, while the 6-inch version is, in fact, cheaper.
