Japanese manufacturer #Sony was present at the MWC 2016 in Barcelona yesterday and took the stage to unveil its new range of Xperia X smartphones. There are three smartphones in the company’s Xperia X lineup known as the Xperia X, Xperia XA and Xperia X Performance.
The Xperia X Performance is a flagship level offering, which is a bit of a surprise considering that Sony only recently unveiled the Xperia Z5 series of handsets. The Xperia XA is a budget device, while the Xperia X is a mid-range smartphone. All four handsets will be sold in White, Graphite Black, Lime Gold and Rose Gold color variants.
The Xperia XA comes with a 5 inch 720p display, the MediaTek MT6755 octa core chipset, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage (expandable), a 13-megapixel camera on the back, an 8-megapixel front camera, Android 6.0 Marshmallow and a 2,300 mAh battery.
The Xperia X features a 5 inch 1080p display, the octa core Snapdragon 650 chip, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage (expandable), a 23-megapixel rear camera, an 13-megapixel front camera, Android 6.0 Marshmallow and a 2,620 mAh battery with a fingerprint scanner on the side.
The most powerful of the lot is the Xperia X Performance, which features a 5 inch 1080p display panel, the quad core Snapdragon 820 SoC, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage (expandable), a 23-megapixel rear camera, a 13-megapixel front camera, Android 6.0 Marshmallow, fingerprint sensor and a 2,700 mAh battery underneath.
Sony is yet to announce availability and pricing of the handsets, although we hope to gather more details in the weeks to come.
