Ms. Jhoana Benedicto - Marketing Officer for Mobile - shares, "Smartphone users are demanding more from their smartphones: some want a better camera, others longer battery life, and the rest just simply want a sleeker design."

Design and External Features

Sony Xperia X takes the company's already very attractive OmniBalance design identity to a higher level.

As you can see in these images, the handset looks largely the same as the elegant flagship level Z-Series models of the past five years.

This new model, however, already has a contoured 2.D glass face and a back plate made of real metal, which makes it even nicer to hold and behold.

On the right panel, you will find the handset's power button replete with Fingerprint Scanner for quickly unlocking the screen, the volume rocker, and the dedicated camera button.

Hard clicking on the camera button instantly launches the app, bypassing screen unlock. This is called Quick Startup and it lets you capture the perfect shot on-demand in less than 0.6 seconds

The slots for the two SIM cards and the microSD card are located on the left panel with a metal flap covering it.

Unique Imaging Capabilities

Sony Xperia X Dual SIM features the company's Predictive Hybrid Autofocus technology that tracks an object then cleverly predicts its movement, resulting in clear and crisp shots.

The 23 MegaPixel main camera also comes with SteadyShot video stabilisation that minimizes “shaky cam” effects.

This model is the first flagship smartphone release from Sony to have such a high-resolution 13 MegaPixel front-facing camera with wide-angle lens that lets you include more of your friends in every selfie. The front shooter also has an ISO of 6400, which boosts its low light performance.

Technical Specifications and New Battery Features

At its heart, the device runs its Xperia-UI-skinned Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS with a 64-Bit Hexa Core Qualcomm MSM8956 Snapdragon 650, has 3GB of RAM for smooth multitasking, and comes with 32GB of internal storage that's easily expandable via microSD card slot.

The smartphone is powered by a non-removable 2,620 mAh Li-Ion pack that benefits from the Japanese tech company's smart battery management innovation that delivers up to two days of battery life and supports Quick Charge technology. Also, while other smartphone batteries quickly lose capacity over time, Sony Xperia X's pack has up to two times battery lifespan -- thanks to the ground-breaking Qnovo Adaptive Charging that maintains battery health while the handset is plugged to an electrical outlet.
