Though the Sony Xperia Z6 launch date is still a lot of weeks away, Sony didn’t fail to make its presence felt at the MWC 2016. It launched the new Xperia X series. The first three phones in this series are Sony Xperia X, XA and X Performance.

Sony Xperia X

All the three smartphones launched under this series feature a 5-inch display. Sony has got a bit away from its usual Xperia design and has gone for a metallic back. Also, the front and the back of the phone have a continuous colour due to a ‘tone-on-tone approach’. The phones are available in Graphite black, White, Lime Gold and Rose Gold colour variants.

Sony Xperia X

The Sony Xperia X is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 650 chipset along with 3GB of RAM. The device runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow out-of-the-box . It has an internal memory of 32GB of storage which can be expanded further with a microSD card.

The power button on the Xperia X also acts as a fingerprint sensor.

The Xperia X features an amazing 23 MP rear shooter which is equipped with Sony’s Predictive Hybrid Autofocus technology. It lets users pick a target and then it tracks it. Also Sony has claimed that opening the camera app and taking a quick snap would just take 0.6 seconds. This would be really amazing if true. The device has a 13 MP front-facing camera for selfies and video chat.

Sony Xperia X Performance

Xperia X Performance is powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset. It has IP68 rating which means it is water and dust resistant. Except for these two features, Xperia X Performance has also same specs as that of the Xperia X.

It has a 23 MP rear shooter with Hybrid Auto Focus. It can record videos up to 4K and the ISO can be boosted ISO up to 12,800. There is also a 13MP front-shooter. It also features the fingerprint sensor on the power button just like the Xperia X.

Sony Xperia XA

Xperia XA can be called as a more affordable version of the Xperia X. The display in this phone is 720p instead of 1080p. It has 13MP/8MP camera combo and is powered by the mid-range MediaTek MT6755 chipset. It has 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal storage which is expandable via microSD card. It also runs on Android Marshmallow. It doesn’t feature a fingerprint sensor or stereo speakers and has a smaller battery of 2,300mAh.
