The 23MP rear camera on the Sony Xperia X Performance and Sony Xperia X is teased on official video

Both the Sony Xperia X Performance and Sony Xperia X will feature the same 23MP rear camera, which is the subject of the official video you will find at the bottom of this article. More on that in a second. The major difference between the two handsets is the chipset employed in each model. The Xperia X Performance is powered by the Snapdragon 820 SoC, while the Snapdragon 650 SoC is used for the Xperia X.
So as we were saying, the video below focuses on the 23MP rear shooter found on the Xperia X Performance and Xperia X. Sony touts the new Predictive Hybrid Autofocus by saying that it keeps you "always one step ahead." The camera accomplishes this task when recording a video by focusing on a person or object. The technology reduces blur by tracking on the moving object.
Check out this technology by clicking on the video below.

Samsung can take weird decisions. Was just unsure as didn't read about it in any review. Reviewers only review stuff which is advertised I guess. They will review this in X performance like it's the first phone to have this feature LOL. I can bet on this since most reviewers are dumb.

It is a common thing in tech world to review an old feature as a totally new one. Apple is an example, most of the features in iPhone are old but reviewers review any new feature in iphone as the first and innovative.... You can look at much talk about always on display of G5 and S7. My old Nokia preview 808 from 2012 have it. I heard that Nokia N8 from 2010 also have it... So, it is not uncommon on tech sites like PA to talk about certain feature as if it is invented today...

Not exactly the same... My Z3 Compact and my wife's Z1 Compact both have Object Tracking Autofocus... but the difference here is the "Predictive" part where the software will anticipate the movement of the object in focus and will keep in focus for a few frames later... probably by extrapolating previous movements

Samsung using dual pixel image sensing is diff from pridictive auto focus by sony Dude... Dual pixel can get focus very fast than its competitors but sony pridictive autofocus continously focusing moving object....

object tracking af isnt something new.all z(z to z5) series have object tracking focus , calling s6 is innovative for this feature is absurd. support.sonymobile.com/global-en/xperiaz/userguide/Using-still-camera-settings/ but the difference sony new tracking focus isnt that simple.it's called predictive autofocus , so it predicts object where it's moving to before. youtube.com/watch?v=Q17c8DeY3L8

calling s6 is innovative for this feature is absurd. Did I? Read my comment before replying. I said s6 was innovative because of so many 'first in a smartphone' Just watch the video, will you. I don't even use tracking autofocus.

No it's different as it not only tracks the subject, it also predicts the movement. Anyways, it's a gimmick in my opinion and I hope that they have focussed on image quality instead.

I don't think predicting would do much since shutter speed is usually within 1/100 of a second, and in that time the subject wouldn't move much, if at all. It's pretty cool though. I guess they used a cubic spline for that. I would rather love a full featured manual mode with RAW capture. It really helps. 5 min of processing in lightroom makes the auto mode jpg look like garbage.

tracking AF has been on smartphone since forever, but the new Xperia X lineup has something Sony called "predictive AF", which supposed to help predict where the subject is going to move (further or closer to the lens) - which is something that has never been seen on any phone

Nope. This is a Technology invented by NOKIA. First used in 808 pureview. The camera tracks objects, predicts where they will be next and creates a copy of the objects to where it predicts it will be next. Its still about the best camera on a phone. Nokia was frigin innovative at its best. First touch schreen prototype phones around 2003. First to use lansdcape orientation in os. First to Support Flash in browser. And the list goes on and on.
