Sony Xperia X, X Performance and XA: Sony at MWC 2016
Sony at MWC 2016
Sony Xperia X hands-on
The Sony Xperia X also has a beveled glass-and-metal bodywork. No brushed finish, but from a distance, it's quite hard to tell the X and the X Performance apart.
Here goes a quick video hands-on from the Mobile World Congress floor.
We did get to handle this one and can say the screen looks great, with wide viewing angles and great colors. Like the Performance, the Xperia X has front-facing stereo speakers.
Sony brought its 23MP camera with Predictive Hybrid autofocus to the Xperia X and X Performance. There was a setup to test it out - tracking a randomly moving ball. Getting the initial lock was much slower than on the Galaxy S7 we tested yesterday, but Sony's strength is that once focus is locked, the camera does better at tracking the object as it moves around.
The Xperia X is powered by a Snapdragon 650 chipset (with 3GB of RAM) and will launch with Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
The X (153g) weighs more than the XA (137.4g), the Xperia X Performance (165g) is the heaviest of them three.
