The colourful Sony Xperia 10 IV will be available for pre-order in Malaysia from 1 July onwards. We received this confirmation from Sony Malaysia itself, and it’s quite a bit later than the local pre-orders of the Xperia 1 IV – the flagship phone can be pre-ordered from 11 June instead.
Nonetheless, Malaysian pre-orders of the Xperia 10 IV will run from 1 to 31 July 2022; the whole month, basically. No word yet on any pre-order incentives for the mid-ranger, but it should be bundled with some freebies, just like previous Xperia pre-orders.
Just like its predecessor, the Xperia 10 IV has an IP65/IP68 water and dust resistance, which is quite a rare feature for a mid-range smartphone. It also features Sony’s signature 21:9 tall and narrow display for easier one-handed use.
Other specifications of the Xperia 10 IV include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 695 chipset, a 6.0-inch 2520 x 1080 OLED display with a standard 60Hz refresh rate, a triple camera system (12MP primary + 8MP telephoto + 8MP ultra-wide angle), an 8MP selfie camera, 6GB RAM, 128GB expandable storage, and a sizeable 5,000mAh battery.
To recap, the Sony Xperia 10 IV will be available for pre-order in Malaysia from 1 to 31 July 2022. We haven’t been told how much it’ll cost locally, but for the sake of comparison, it starts at 499 euro in selected markets – that comes up to about RM2,305.
