Sony Mobile Announces New Xperia X Series Smartphones

Xperia X Colour Range

Sony Mobile today announced a brand new range of Xperia smartphones – the company’s next flagship range called the “Xperia X” series.

The Xperia X series embodies Sony Mobile’s new brand vision for the future of communications by introducing advanced layers of intelligent technologies across the popular and acclaimed Xperia features: camera, battery and design.

With a fresh new look, improved camera technology, UX and smart battery management system, the Xperia X series offers a range of choices to make every day smarter and simpler for consumers. The Xperia X series includes a comprehensive range of smartphones from the premium smartphone (Xperia X) featuring an intelligent camera with quicker response times and Predictive Hybrid Autofocus, the enhanced super mid-range smartphone (Xperia XA) with stunning bezel-less display and perfect fit design, to the edgy smartphone selfie camera masterpiece (Xperia XA Ultra).

“As smartphones become more integral in users’ life, we have refined the Xperia X series with cutting-edge technologies to empower users to do more and live more meaningfully than before. Sony Mobile recognises that the everyday user expects quality camera performance, smart battery management and stylish aesthetics from their smartphones today, and we are committed to constantly innovate to achieve these standards”, said Vincent Yip, Director, Market Head, Sony Mobile Communications, Singapore.

Xperia XA Ultra embraces the selfie generation with the world’s most advanced selfie camera that boosts super low-light capabilities for any situation

Xperia XA Ultra boasts the world’s most advanced smartphone selfie camera[8] with a 16MP front-facing camera and Sony’s renowned low-light sensors to capture impressive, more natural-looking images during the day and night. Sony camera technology used in Xperia XA Ultra helps you achieve sharp, bright, blur-free shots, with a smart selfie flash to naturally illuminate your face for night-scene selfies. The camera function also features Optical Image Stabilisation to counter unsteadiness for both photos and videos.

Taking a selfie is further simplified with the Hand Shutter feature – just raise a hand to activate the shutter timer so you have sufficient time to make the perfect pout and strike a pose. Capturing splendid spontaneous images is also possible with the super-fast 21.5MP main camera and Hybrid Autofocus feature, which freezes the action into a bright and clear frame while the smartphone’s quick launch camera feature also enables you to go from standby to capture in a fraction of a second.

Made to fit seamlessly in your hand, the infinity-feel borderless 6″ Full HD display with curved glass is encased by a metal surround. Despite the large screen, its super slim design and One-handed Operation Mode means you can use it comfortably in one hand. In fact, Xperia XA Ultra is the world’s narrowest 6″ smartphone[9] with a width of 79mm.

Although Xperia XA Ultra has an enlarged display, the battery shelf life is not compromised. You still get up to two-day battery life[10] from a single charge, leaving you more time to chat, snap and watch.

Need a quick battery top-up? Use Quick Charger UCH12[11] and get 5.5 hours of battery life in just 10 minutes. Furthermore, the lifetime of your battery is extended over time with compatible Qnovo Adaptive Charging technology.

Each X series smartphone integrates a refreshing look and feel with a continuous colour surround and is available in dual-SIM variants
