Sony has officially confirmed the pricing and availability details of its newest Xperia X smartphone offerings -- the Xperia XZ and the Xperia X Compact. For the full size Xperia XZ, it will be made available in the United States mobile market on October 2nd of this year at a suggested retail price of $700.
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.
Back in February, Sony spoke about its upcoming Xperia X smartphone lineup and how it would be focusing on its camera. Considering it has been a while since Sony has released a best selling smartphone, this would be something for its loyal fans to look forward to.
Sony has enjoyed strong brand recognition over the years, especially when people talk about television sets, home entertainment gadgets, and video game consoles (PlayStation). But when it comes to mobile devices, not many people know that the Japanese tech giant also makes and releases smartphone devices.
The Xperia Z5 and Xperia Z5 Compact smartphones have been made available by Sony in European regions and other markets for a number of months now. However, the Japanese tech giant has not launched these two flagship devices yet in the United States.

It appears that Sony is making a rather odd change to its advice regarding the use of its Xperia line of waterproof mobile devices. Over the past few years, the Japanese phone maker has built quite a reputation for producing smartphones with high waterproof ratings. For instance, most of its recent Xperia smartphones have acquired an Ingress Protection rating of IP68 for waterproofing, which is the highest rating ever. But now, the company seems to be saying to users of its phones to refrain from using Xperia devices underwater.
