Sony announces the Xperia X, square in the middle of its brand new X series

In what can only be described as a major hat-trick that pretty much came unexpected, Sony Mobile announced the Xperia X. Belonging square in the middle of its brand new X series of smartphones, the Xperia X is powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 650 hexa-core chipset, which may be a step below the premium-tier SD 820 SoC, but packs plenty of high performance potential. There are 3GB of RAM and up to 32GB (single SIM version) / 64GB (dual SIM version) of expandable storage. 

Sized a comfortable 69.4 x 142.7 x 7.9mm at a weight of 153 grams, the Xperia X is compact with its elegant design and reasonably sized display. The Xperia X features a 5-inch 1080p resolution display with Sony's Triluminos and X-Reality image enhancement technologies. When activated, these sweeten up photos and videos with an artificial boost in color and dynamics.

Sony equipped the Xperia X with a 23MP camera that, uber-large photos aside, serves up Predictive Hybrid Autofocus. Other extras on board include Quick launch, 5x Clear Image Zoom, a 24mm G-Lens with F2.0 aperture, and 1080p video recording. Meanwhile, the front camera is a seriously big 13MP unit with a 22mm wide angle lens and SteadyShot video stabilisation. The Predictive Hybrid Autofocus lets you choose a subject from the scene and predicts its motion, promising blurry-free shots. More advanced features include Sony’s smart battery management, which claims to deliver up to two days of battery life. Also helping in the battery department is Qnovo's Adaptive Charging technology for fast recharges.

Prices and markets for the Xperia X haven't been announced yet.

From what i read, it's kinda like a better version of QuickCharge, it can charge the battery quickly while adjusting the current flow depending on the state and condition of the battery, thus making the battery have longer lifespan and usage time.

Sorry for the bad english :)

I don't think so, if im not mistaken the volume rocker placement is identical with their previous devices. It's their(xperias) style.
