Sony Xperia X gets a detailed teardown
Sony unveiled its new brand of Xperia X smartphones at MWC 2016 with rumors of an Xperia X, Xperia XA, and Xperia X Performance family of devices. The latest rumor adds a fourth model to the list with the supposed Xperia X Premium, which could come equipped with an "HDR" display. Exact plans from Sony Mobile, however, are still under wraps and not official.
An official teardown of the Xperia X from Sony outlines nearly all the key components of the smartphone including its 143 x 69 x 7.7 mm dimensions, 150 g weight, and 5-inch Triluminos FHD display. The two integrated cameras are also highlights with the 13 MP front-facing Exmor RS camera and wide-angle f/2.0 22 mm lens and the 23 MP 1/2.3" rear camera. The rear camera in particular is equipped with a predictive hybrid auto-focus system and a Clear Image zoom with a wide-angle f/2.0 24 mm lens. Sony is promising very good shots with the camera even in low-light conditions.
Other new camera features include a wake up time of just 0.6 seconds for faster shots. Core components will be a Snapdragon 650 SoC with 3 GB RAM and 32 GB of internal storage space.
