$550 Sony Xperia X Reaches US in June

...

Sony's Xperia X smartphone is launching stateside later this month. The midrange device (pictured), unveiled at February's Mobile World Congress, is expected to hit shelves on June 26 for $549.99.

It will reportedly be joined by the flagship Xperia X Performance ($699.99) and affordable Xperia XA ($279.99) on July 17 and selfie-focused XA Ultra on July 24 ($369.99), according to The Verge.

The X Performance features waterproofing and a larger battery, but it is otherwise identical to the Xperia X. Both sport a slender, lightweight build, metal back, and rounded frame, complemented by a slim bezel and curved display. The wide power button on the frame's right side doubles as a fingerprint sensor in global markets; phones sold in the US will likely not come with that functionality.

Both phones sport a 5-inch 1,920-by-1,080 curved display, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, microSD card support, a 13-megapixel front-facing camera, and a 23-megapixel rear-facing shooter with predictive hybrid autofocus. And thanks to Sony's adaptive charging technology—available with the Xperia X's 2,620mAh battery and X Performance's 2,700mAh battery—the phone lineup boasts two days of battery life.

If you're looking for something more affordable, the 5-inch Xperia XA has a 1,280-by-720, edge-to-edge display, the same key layout as its siblings, and the standard circular power button instead of a fingerprint scanner. But a lower price means less impressive specs: The XA operates a MediaTek MT6755 processor with 2GB of RAM, a 2,300mAh battery, 13-megapixel rear camera, and 8-megapixel front cam. It comes with 16GB of storage and can take microSD cards.

Introduced two weeks ago, the 6-inch Xperia XA Ultra lives up to its name: a 16-megapixel front-facing shooter helps it stand out from the rest of the X series. The 21.5-megapixel rear sensor, meanwhile, is fast-launching and can capture shots in the blink of an eye.

All of Sony's handsets are due to arrive this summer with Android 6.0 Marshmallow, in a variety of colors, including white, black, lime gold, rose gold.
