Sony Xperia X

We see that the X is the higher specced model of the two. It carries a bigger battery, 1080P FHD display and Snapdragon 650 SoC.

The Xperia X also has a superior camera at 23MP and with a 2/3″ sensor. This size sensor is the same size we normally see in standalone consumer compacts and super zooms.

The front camera on the Sony Xperia X is surprisingly high-specced as well– 13MP Exymor RS. This is likely Sony IMX214, but may be Sony IMX258. In either case, it’s an incredible leap for front cameras and means that in good light you will be able to take respectable, sharp images.

Sony Xperia XA / F3216

The lower specced model, Xperia XA, will bring along with it the MTK6755 Helio P10. This SoC is no slouch and it’s excellent to see Sony giving MTK a bit of clout by using it in the upcoming Sony Xperia XA.
