Sony launches the Xperia X Performance and Xperia XA in the US

Sony launches the Xperia X Performance and Xperia XA in the US
Several weeks after releasing the Xperia X stateside, Sony is now also selling the Xperia X Performance and Xperia XA in the US. Just like the Xperia X, both new smartphones are available unlocked - no carriers involved - and can be found at Amazon, Best Buy, B&H Photo Video, and Reagan Wireless.

The Xperia X Performance costs $699.99, and comes with a 128 GB SanDisk microSD card in the box, while the Xperia XA is priced at $279.99, coming with a 64 GB card. For some reason, the free microSD card doesn't seem to be available for the Xperia X Performance if you're purchasing the handset from Amazon.

We already reviewed the Sony Xperia X Performance and Sony Xperia XA, but, instead of being impressed by them, we were rather disappointed. Anyhow, if you visit the Sony Mobile US website (via the source links below), you'll find links to all the places in the US where these new Xperias are currently available. The smartphones will work on most GSM/LTE carriers (starting with AT&T and T-Mobile), but not on CDMA carriers like Verizon and Sprint.
