Sony X Performance
Sony's new Xperia X series made its debut in Barcelona. The series is made of three phones, the X Performance, the X, and the XA. All three feature brand new design language from Sony in that they lose the glass back panels of the Xperia Z series for all-metal chassis. The X Performance is the most impressive of the three. It has a Snapdragon 820 processor, 5-inch full HD screen, and 23-megapixel rear camera and 13-megapixel front camera with hybrid auto-focus. The Xperia X series will reach select markets this summer. Sony will likely sell them in the US directly online via its website. Pricing hasn't been specified.
