Sony Xperia X, Xperia XA Go Up for Pre-Registrations in India

sony-xperia-x-reg

Sony India has kicked off pre-registrations for the Xperia X and Xperia XA smartphones. Interested consumers can sign up on the company’s India website to be the first ones to know about the details of the new Sony Xperia X and XA launch offers and price. The company is expected to announce the pricing of the Sony Xperia X and Sony Xperia XA smartphones near release.

To recall, Sony at MWC 2016 introduced the all-new smartphone ‘X’ series with the launch of the Xperia X, Xperia XA, and the Xperia X Performance. It’s worth noting that Sony has not kicked off pre-registrations for the Sony Xperia X Performance indicating that it may launch that model later in the country, if at all. The Sony India website doesn’t indicate whether the handsets launching in India will support dual-SIM. The company had also launched dual-SIM variants of the models – the Xperia X Dual and Xperia XA Dual.

Back in February, the Xperia X and the Xperia XA went up for pre-orders via e-commerce retailers in the European region. While the Sony Xperia X was listed with a price tag of EUR 599 (roughly Rs. 45,000), the Xperia XA was listed for EUR 299 (roughly Rs. 22,500). We can expect the India pricing of these handsets to be around the European pricing.

Sony at its MWC event had announced that the Sony Xperia X and Sony Xperia XA (seen below) smartphones would be available in White, Graphite Black, Lime Gold and Rose Gold colours. They will go on sale from summer 2016.

Both Xperia X and XA smartphones run Android 6.0 Marshmallow with company’s UI on top. The Sony Xperia X features a 5-inch full-HD (1080×1920 pixels) Triluminos display for mobile powered X-Reality for mobile engine; a 23-megapixel rear camera with an f/2.0 aperture and a 1/2.3-inch Exmor RS sensor, predictive hybrid autofocus, and pulse LED flash; 13-megapixel front camera with an f/2.0 aperture; 3GB of RAM; 32GB inbuilt storage, expandable storage support up to 200GB via microSD card, and 4G LTE support. The Xperia X packs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 650 processor. The Sony Xperia X measures 142.7×69.4×7.9mm and weighs 153 grams. It is backed by a 2620mAh battery. The handset’s dual-SIM version packs 64GB inbuilt storage.

The Sony Xperia XA features a 5-inch HD (720×1280 pixels) display powered by Mobile Bravia engine 2. It is powered by a MediaTek MT6755 coupled with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of built-in storage. Much like Xperia X and Xperia X Performance, the Xperia XA also supports expandable storage via microSD card (up to 200GB). The Android 6.0 Marshmallow smartphone sports a 13-megapixel camera with Exmor RS for mobile sensor, hybrid autofocus, and LED flash. It also houses an 8-megapixel front camera. It is backed by a 2300mAh battery, measures 143.6×66.8×7.9mm, and weighs 138 grams.
