Sony took a step away from its usual Z series, and branded its new smartphones with the Xperia X naming system at this year’s MWC. While these devices have been travelling the world ever since, they are still to make their way into India.
That wait will soon be over for fans, as both the Sony Xperia X and the Xperia XA have been listed on the company’s official website with pre-registration pages for both of them up as well. However, their all-important price tags have still been kept a secret.
The Xperia X and XA were both unveiled alongside their powerful cousin named the Xperia X Performance which doesn’t seem to be ready for an Indian release yet. The two other smartphones are mid-range offerings and hence aren’t water and dustproof, if you’re wondering.
A quick look at the specs of the Sony Xperia X:
– Display: 5-inch, 1080p full HD
– OS: Android 6.0 Marshmallow
– Processor: Hexa core Snapdragon 650
– GPU: Adreno 510
– Memory: 3GB RAM, 32GB storage (expandable)
– Cameras: 23MP rear, 13MP front
– Battery: 2620mAh
The higher-end Xperia X comes with a 5-inch 1080p display, and runs on a hexa core Snapdragon 650 processor that’s coupled with 3GB of RAM. Its rear camera is a 23MP unit, while its front snapper has a 13MP sensor.
As for the lower-end Xperia XA, it grabs a 5-inch 720p monitor, while its internal setup includes an octa core MediaTek MT6755 CPU and 2GB of RAM. Its back has a 13MP camera, whereas its front settles for an 8MP unit.
