Sony Xperia X and Xperia XA already up for pre-order in the UK, prices and colors revealed
Today, Amazon's UK website has listed a couple of the new handsets up for pre-order. Priced in British Pounds, of course, we now know that the Xperia XA will run for $345 (£239.99) and the Xperia X will don a $720 (£499.99) price-tag on that side of The Pond. The listings claim that the XA will, indeed, launch on June the 10th, but, surprisingly, the Xperia X's release date is pegged at the 20th of May. We've also got a glimpse at the available finishes for both handsets — while there will probably be more when Sony starts churning out the new handsets en mass, we currently have a Black and Rose Gold Xperia X, and an Xperia XA in beautiful Lime Gold, White, and Black.
Interestingly, there's still no word on the Xperia X Performance – it was not mentioned in the previous report about pre-order bonuses, and it's nowhere to be seen on Amazon right now. The most powerful smartphone of the trio will probably be released even later than June and, seeing how the smartphone launches are currently spaced out, one could assume the X Performance to launch in July. But that's just an educated guess.
As a reminder, the Xperia XA packs a 5-inch, 720 x 1280 display, an Octa-core MediaTek Helio P10 MT6755 SoC, 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of expandable internal storage, a 13 MP main camera with phase detection autofocus, and an 8 MP selfie snapper. The Xperia X hauls a 5-inch 1080 x 1920 display, a hexa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 650 SoC, 3 GB of RAM, 32 GB of expandable storage, 23 MP camera with PDAF, a 13 MP frontal cam, and the side-mounted fingerprint scanner, seen on the Xperia Z5. The Xperia X Performance, whose price and release date are still a mystery, dons the same hardware as the regular X, save for having a quad-core, flagship-class Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC.
