Sony Xperia 10 III Lite Specifications and Price

Earlier this year, Sony launched the Xperia 10 III with Snapdragon 690 SoC and triple rear cameras. Today, the Japanese tech giant has quietly took the wrap off its lite version dubbed Sony Xperia 10 III Lite. The device isn’t really a lite model in terms of raw hardware, rather it cuts on some storage and offers eSIM functionality.

Under the hood, the device is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 690 SoC. The major difference between the Lite model and the original Xperia 10 III is the storage. The Lite is limited to 64GB of onboard storage and has 6GB of RAM.
