The company had launched its new Xperia 10 and 10 Plus smartphones, earlier named XA3 and XA 3 Plus, however, Sony had discontinued the XA branding with these new 10 and 10 Plus product names. As seen on the earlier Xperia devices, these 10 and 10 Plus also come with a fingerprint scanner on the lock button for authentication. Sony changed its naming scheme a little bit because it was clearly becoming hard for users to keep track.

The USP of the phone is its unusually tall 21:9 4K OLED HDR display. The 10 Plus gets a 6.5-inch display with the same aspect ratio. This aspect ratio is an approximation of several ultra-widescreen aspect ratios (including 64:27, 43:18 and 12:5) and is created to show films recorded in CinemaScope of 2.35:1 or the modern anamorphic format of 2.39:1. There's no notch, and the bezels are much less pronounced compared with the XA2. The device is bezel-less if the large bezel at the top doesn't exist (pun-intended).

The Sony Xperia 1 was built with a flat glass back and the fingerprint sensor is integrated into the power key on the right side. Both smartphones support Full HD+ screen resolution and an aspect ratio standing at 21:9. On top of that, Sony is running a Game Enhancer mode, which improves performance for games as well as other neat tricks such as support for gameplay recording. All three phones adopt a 21:9 aspect ratio for the displays, giving them a unique look.

The camera hardware is no slouch either.

As for camera, the Sony Xperia L3 comes with a 13-megapixel wide-angle sensor with an f/2.2 aperture, and another 2-megapixel depth sensor with an f/2.4 aperture. The Xperia 1 also includes optical image stabilization, a SteadyShot tool and digital image stabilization - the full trifecta for clip creation. For those who care, that's the same chip inside Sony's Alpha a99 II SLR and the RX100 III point-and-shoot. The phone records 4K HDR videos in 21:9, resulting in a more cinematic experience for those viewing content on the device.

A new algorithm works to ensure video stay sharply focused exactly to the level of eyes, while burst shooting features up to 10 fps Auto Focus and Auto Exposure tracking.

The Xperia 1 has a sophisticated triple camera, including a super-wide angle and a telephoto lens. The processor behind this model is the Snapdragon 636, and the RAM jumps up to 4GB.

The XperiaX10 is the successor to last year's Xperia XA2.

The Xperia 10 (MSRP US$349.99) and Xperia 10 Plus (MSRP US$429.99) come in Black, Silver Navy, Pink (Xperia 10 only) and Gold (Xperia 10 Plus only), with Black and Silver available only in the U.S. Both the Xperia 10 and 10 Plus launch on Android 9.0 Pie in the U.S. from March 18, 2019.

Why so long? Because more movies like Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse are shot in 21:9 and you'll be able to watch them on the phones without letterboxing. The phone has Gorilla Glass 6 on the front as well as the rear. As such, the Xperia 1 is the company's flagship offering while the Xperia 10 and Xperia 10 Plus are slotted in the mid-range segment. There is an 8-megapixel camera on the front for selfies and video calling. Both have 64 GB storage with the option to expand to 512 GB via MicroSD card.
