Sony Xperia X series phones promise better photos and battery life

Sony Xperia X Performance

Sony has introduced its new Xperia X series of phones at the MWC 2016 and launched 3 handsets from the range. The Xperia X, X Performance and XA don’t have a price tag yet and are set to come out in the summer of 2016.

The Sony Xperia X Performance is the most premium of the lot. The highlight of the phone is a brand new Predictive Hybrid Autofocus feature which supposedly tracks a moving subject and guesses where it will go next. This allows the 23MP rear camera to focus quickly and ensures a blur-free image.

Sony has blessed the phone with a Snapdragon 820 processor working in tandem with 3GB of RAM. It runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow and flaunts a 5-inch 1080p screen. The brand promises the device’s 2700mAh battery can last for 2 days and further claims the powerhouse’s lifespan is twice as long thanks to Qnovo’s Adaptive Charging technology.

The Sony Xperia X shares many of its specs with the X Performance except for its Snapdragon 650 SoC. The latter is also the only one of the 3 to come with waterproof credentials thanks to IP68 certification. As for the Xperia XA, the phone is basically a slightly downgraded version of the other two.
