MWC 2016: Sony launches Xperia X and XA phones, brings in new batteries, cameras and design

Sony has launched X and XA, two new smartphones in White, Graphite Black, Lime Gold and Rose Gold at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona today.

Both Sony X and XA phones come with several modifications in terms of battery life, camera features and handset design. Sony will also make available a range of matching Style covers for both phones just like it has done for Xperia M5 and C5 Ultra phones.

With Qualcomm's Snapdragon 650 and MediaTek MT6755 chips powering their engines, Xperia X and XA phone sport longer battery lives thanks to Qnovo’s Adaptive Charging technology and Sony’s home-grown smart battery management system. These technologies can make these phones last as long as two days on a single charge.

The handsets are made of premium materials and feature texture and curvature that can fit your palm easily. The Xperia XA phone also comes with an attractive edge-to-edge display.
