Sony came to MWC but didn’t bring the Xperia Z6 with them, instead they introduced their new X series of phones. The X series of phones consists of the Xperia XA, X, and X Performance. Offering a low, mid, and high end phone all in the same size body with 5 inch screens.

The Xperia XA is the lowest end of the trio of phones. Featuring a 5 inch 720P display, MediaTek Helio P10, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, microSD with support up to 200GB, 13MP rear facing, 8MP front facing camera, and 2300mAh battery.

The Xperia X and X Performance both feature near identical specs. The biggest difference being the X is powered by a Snapdragon 650, while the X Performance has the Snapdragon 820. The X Performance also features a larger 2700mAh battery, compared to the X’s 2620mAh one. As well as IP68 water and dust protection on the X Performance. Besides that they both have 5 inch 1080P displays, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, microSD supporting up to 200GB, 23MP rear camera, and 13MP front facing camera.

Sony has been known for their fantastic camera technology. Most phones these days use Sony sensors in them. With the X series they are introducing Predictive Hybrid Auto Focus. Which will lock focus on a moving object and then try to predict where it will go next. Allowing you to get the sharp in focus  shot you want. This was developed with help from their successful Alpha camera division.

There have been some complaints online asking where the Xperia Z6 is, and at least one reply on the German Facebook page seems to suggest there will be no Z6. The reply basically said, there will be no Z6, that the Xperia X Performance will meet the needs of Sony customers. So it’s possible the Z line is done and now X line has moved in.

The Xperia X line is expected in Summer of 2016 and will launch in White, Graphite Black, Lime Gold and Rose Gold.
