After skipping the Xperia 10 II Plus, it looks like Sony will now move on to the Xperia 10 III and release it as the company's first mid-range 5G smartphone. It is discovered that the upcoming device will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 690 chipset.

The Sony Xperia 10 II was announced earlier this year in February together with the flagship Xperia 1 II and Xperia L4 entry-level phone. Therefore, around the same time next year, the company might be bringing the successor onto the stage. Other than that, the next Xperia flagship with the Snapdragon 875 chipset is said to be in the works as well.
