Sony has announced  three new smartphones under its X series dubbed Xperia X, Xperia X Performance and Xperia XA. The devices will be available in White, Graphite Black, Lime Gold and Rose Gold colour variants.
In terms of specifications, the Sony Xperia X sports a 5-inch Full-HD display with 1080 x 1920 pixel resolution. It is powered by by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor paired with 3GB RAM. Running Android 6.0 Marshmallow, the device comes equipped with a 23MP rear camera with f1/2.3 Exmor RS for mobile sensor, predictive hybrid autofocus, and pulse LED flash. One will also find a 13MP front-facing camera. The smartphone packs in an internal storage of 32GB which can be further expanded up to 200GB via microSD card. A 2620mAh battery completes the package.
The two new X series are the first of the ‘new-look’ Xperia brand. Both are available in a range of colors, as well as being offered in a gold version. The XA model has a larger, edge-to-edge display.
A new feature called ‘spontaneous capture’ promises to let you focus quickly and there’s a new hybrid autofocus borrowed from Sony’s cameras that lets you choose a subject in shot and predict their motion to eliminate blur. How well it works, we’ll have to see in our hands-on testing..
The first of these to arrive is called the Xperia Ear and lets users voice commands to do things like check your schedule, news or weather while on-the-move. It can also perform other smart assistant functions, like taking a message, navigating you to a destination or searching the Web for specific info.
Other upcoming Xperia connected devices currently in concept stage include the Xperia Eye (a wearable, wide-angle camera with a 360-degree lens), the Xperia Projector (for interacting with devices via touch on any surface) and the Xperia Agent (a personalized smart assistant that has a built-in camera and projector).
