Back in February early this year at the annual Mobile World Congress held in Barcelona, Spain, Sony took the opportunity to introduce three new devices, the Xperia X, the Xperia XA, and the Xperia X Performance, which make up a brand new family of Xperia devices. Sony has since unveiled a new addition, the Xperia XA Ultra, less than a month ago. Interested buyers might have been wondering when these Xperia X handsets will hit American shores. Well, Sony has provided an answer, revealing that the Xperia X will be launching in the United States mobile market in June 26th of this year at a price of $550.
For those not familiar with the Xperia X, it is a midtier smartphone device that comes with a 5 inch Full HD display screen, paired with a 23 megapixel camera on the rear side and a 13 megapixel camera on the front side. With regards to hardware specifications, the Xperia X is equipped with a 64 bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 650 chip set, supported with 3 gigabytes of random access memory (RAM) and 32 gigabytes of onboard storage. The device also features a 2,620 mAh battery and is powered by Google’s Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Color options include lime gold, rose gold, graphite black, and white.
As for the other Xperia X models -- the Xperia XA, the Xperia X Performance, and the Xperia XA Ultra -- Sony has not released specific US release dates for these handsets, but they are expected to be made available in store shelves across America before the end of this year’s summer season.
How exactly can differentiate between the members of the Xperia X family? Simply put, the Xperia X is the midtier option while the Xperia XA is the low end offering. As for the Xperia X Performance, it is being positioned as a premium offering. Thus, the Xperia X Performance is fitted with a more powerful chip set, namely Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 processor, and water proofing capabilities. What about the Xperia XA Ultra? Well, this one appears to be a bigger, bulkier version of the Xperia XA, with a screen measuring 6 inches and with an edge to edge curved display. It also features a different processor (MediaTek eight core) and a more powerful and efficient battery (with quick charging abilities).
