Sony’s line of Xperia devices have always featured a strong and edgy design, yet classy in its own way. It seems like the company is once again following its tradition as it unveils the latest addition to its portfolio of smartphones in the form of the Xperia X lineup. Announced at the Mobile World Congress, the Sony Xperia X, Xperia X Performance, and Xperia XA are three new smartphones that boasts of superb photography prowess and a sleeker design language.
First of all, the Sony Xperia XA is a mid-range smartphone that comes with a 5-inch HD display. It features a 13MP primary snapper and an 8MP selfie shooter to take snapshots up a notch. It’s also powered by a 64-bit MediaTek MT6755 SoC, also known as the Helio P10. By standards today, a 720p resolution isn’t what you can exactly call massive, but its screen real estate comes with a fresh, new design as there are no more side bezels. Sony claims that its battery can also last up to two days because of its new power management features.
The Xperia X, on the other hand, is a step above the Xperia XA. It also features a 5-inch display, although its resolution is bumped up to 1920 x 1080. Sony also went with the Qualcomm route as Sony equipped the Xperia X with a Snapdragon 650 chipset. Furthermore, the smartphone also features Sony’s ½.3-inch, 23MP Exmor sensor that comes with Prediction Hybrid Autofocus, which has been developed by the company’s camera division. It can automatically track objects and keep them in focus, giving users more beautiful shots in the process. Meanwhile, the 13MP selfie shooter can take better pictures in low light.
If you need breakneck speeds and beastly performance, Sony’s Xperia X Performance answers the call. It features a speedy Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset, which puts the device in competition against other flagships that sport the same SoC. Its display is a 5-inch 1080p panel, and it comes with a seamless metal back panel. It also features an IP68 rating, giving it waterproofing and dustproofing.
