The new Sony Xperia 10 and Xperia 10 Plus probably aren’t among the most interesting smartphones of the moment but in the past few hours, the Japanese manufacturer has made them more “attractive” for a certain number of users.
The two smartphones have been included in the Sony Open Devices Program and this means that their owners will be able to unlock them and flash their software without complications.
The Sony Open Devices program includes phones like the Sony Xperia XZ3, Xperia XA2 Ultra and Xperia Z Ultra and allows users to unlock the bootloader and flash software to personalize their smartphone. Sony makes AOSP builds and driver binaries available for all devices covered by this program.
The owners of the Sony Xperia 10 and Xperia 10 Plus who wish to take advantage of this opportunity can get more information by going to the official website of the Open Devices program, where they can get a code to unlock the smartphone.
It is worth to mention that both devices feature metal unibody designs with dual rear cameras and Sonys usual side mounted fingerprint sensor, though neither are waterproof. The Xperia 10 is the most compact of the duo flaunting a 6-inch 21:9 LCD Full HD+ resolution, while the Xperia 10 Plus retains the flagship Xperia 6.5-inches display, but with lesser resolution and the older generation Gorilla Glass 5 protection.
