Sony has been out of the smartphone action far too long. Considering the dismal performance of its Xperia Z so far, it should not come across as a surprise though. However, the latest announcement sends a clear message that the Japanese electronic giant hasn’t thrown-in its towel yet. Sony unveiled the Xperia X and XA.
While the company is done with the Z moniker, it is still holding onto the so called omniBalance (boring) design language.
The Xperia X Dual sports a 5-inch Full HD screen. It is powered by the Snapdragon 650 chipset. It has 3 GB RAM, 64 GB internal storage, and a microSD card slot. It boasts of a 23 megapixel camera with Exmor RS sensor. For selfies, there’s a whopping 13 megapixel front-facing snapper. The phone has a 2630 mAh battery and an obligatory fingerprint sensor. The Xperia X is priced at Rs 49,000 (no, I’m not joking).
The Xperia XA Dual settles for an HD 5-inch screen. To cut corners, it opts for the MediaTek Helio P10 chip over the more reliable Qualcomm SoC (System on Chip) found in its pricey sibling. The XA Dual comes with 2 GB RAM, 16 GB internal memory, and a microSD card slot. For photography, you get a 13 megapixel camera. Other features include 4G LTE, dual SIM support, and 2300 mAh. The Xperia XA is priced at Rs 21,000.
