Sony Xperia X was among the new series of phones that the Japanese tech giant released earlier this year. One thing for sure with Sony phones is that they are usually quite pricey, especially when compared to the competition.
When it was launched back in June, the Sony Xperia X, which is the mid-range version of the Xperia X range that also has the flagships Xperia XZ and Xperia X Performance as well as Xperia XA and Xperia XA Ultra, the phone had a price tag of $550. However, this has now changed probably because the company wants to attract more buyers.
If you are a fun of Sony Xperia’s range of phones, you can now grab yourself a brand new unlocked Xperia X handset for just $399, $150 less than the launch price. However, be warned that this is not for all color variants of the phone. Apparently, only those looking to get their hands on the black version can do so at this price. As for the rest of the color variants, which include rose gold, lime gold, and white, the price is at $424.
For the many that have been thinking of getting the Xperia X handset but shied away due to the hefty price tag in comparison to the specs on offer, Sony has you covered with this latest move. For $399, you now get a phone that packs a 5-inch IPS LCD screen with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. There is a scratch-resistant glass on top of the display alongside an oleophobic coating to ensure that the screen stays safe. Under the hood, Sony Xperia X has a Snapdragon 650 processor that has been paired with a 3GB RAM and Adreno 510 GPU.
There is 32GB of storage on offer alongside a hybrid microSD card slot that can accommodate up to 256GB. The rear of the Xperia X has a 23MP sensor with f/2.0 aperture, PDAF and LED flash, but there is no OIS. As for the selfies, you get a decent 13MP snapper with the same aperture as its primary counterpart. The phone is powered by a 2620mAh battery that supports fast charging technology.
Even though Android Nougat is expected to come on board very soon, you will still have to deal with Android Marshmallow for the time being. You also get a fingerprint scanner on the handset, but since this is a U.S. model, this feature is not supported.
Available through Amazon, this version of Xperia X only works with GSM carriers such as T-Mobile and AT&T.
