Sony Xperia X Packs a Powerful New Camera


Sony made headlines with the dual release of the Xperia XA & Xperia X.

Sony shocked viewers at MWC when they showcased two exceptional smartphones. The unveiling of the Xperia X & Xperia XA sent a shock wave throughout the industry. However, all the excitement isn’t about the phones’ performance power. It’s about the innovative technology used to give the Xperia a camera that is unmatched by any smartphone. Sony used the same engineers who were responsible for the wildly popular Alpha hybrid camera products to give their smartphones an edge. What makes these cameras completely unique is their ability to predict subject motion while eliminating any blur. Throw in the fact that both phones come with groundbreaking “Xperia Ear” wireless earpieces & you have a duo that anyone would want. Both phones feature a curved glass display that gives them a sleeker look than previous models.

Even the lower end Xperia XA is equipped with ingenious features. It packs a 5-inch screen, 720p display, 13-megapixel rear camera, as well as an 8 megapixel front camera. All this is powered with a Helio P10 processor. While this is hardly a high resolution screen, it does have some surprising benefits. The low res screen allows the phone to go two days without a charge. It’s also set up for expandable micoSD storage so you can take as many pictures as you want, making the phone especially appealing for young aspiring photographers.

Sony is catering to their user’s inner photographer with their impressive Xperia X model. This smartphone comes fully equipped with a 5 inch screen, 1080p display, expandable storage & a powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 650 CPU. The real appeal for this phone is hands down the camera. This 2.3 inch, 23 megapixel monster has an Exmor sensor that harnesses the power of Prediction Hybrid Auto-focus. To simplify, this all powerful camera has the ability to track moving objects & photograph them without any blur. This innovative addition was developed by Sony’s legendary camera division. Their 13 megapixel front camera allows you to take vibrant selfies at low light. The smartphone is also completely waterproof so it’s perfect for the adventurous photographer.

Another eye opening feature is the Xperia Ear, the first of a whole new generation of wireless earpieces. What makes this earpiece remarkable is that it does more than just allow you to make a call while driving. Through verbal commands you can navigate the internet & dictate messages. As if that wasn’t enough, it gives you a wide stream of weather updates as well as the latest news. The Xperia Ear is made out of silicone & has an all-day battery life. You can connect it to your new Xperia through Bluetooth & NFC.

These tantalizing improvements are generating much needed hype for Sony’s new releases. The only possible deal breaker for these powerful phones may be the price. Unfortunately the details of how much these phones will retail for are still unknown. No matter how cringe worthy the prices end up being, the raw power of this new camera is still an impressive feat. While they still have a long way to go to compete with Apple, these impressive camera features are putting the spotlight back on Sony.
