    Sony announced that it has gone back to the drawing board and “re-imagined” the Xperia brand and the first fruits of this endeavor are the new “X” series smartphones during MWC 2016. The Xperia X Performance, Xperia X, and Xperia XA.

    The entry-level device is the XA, with a MediaTek MT6755 processor rather than a Snapdragon chip. With a 720p display and 16GB storage, Sony’s description of it as a “super mid-range” device with 2GB RAM and 13MP/8MP cameras.

    The Xperia X gets much better specs and should make photography fans happy. It boasts a Snapdragon 650 processor with 3GB of RAM plus 32GB of storage with a 5-inch 1080p screen, but the standout element here is the camera combo. The X gets the same 23MP rear camera as in the Z5 (though with improved firmware) and a 13MP front camera Sony says offers 6400ISO for ultra-capable low-light performance – and a new predictive auto-focus that can track a moving object in the frame.

    Last but not least is the Xperia X Performance, which swaps out the Snapdragon 650 for Qualcomm’s top-end Snapdragon 820 chip. Sony claims two-day battery-life for all three models.

    Additionally, Sony announced its Xperia Ear accessory. The device, much like the Moto Hint, is a standalone earpiece that connects to your phone via Bluetooth and allows you to use your voice to send text messages, get directions, check your calendar, and more.

    Here's a full breakdown of specs for all 3 devices:

    The Sony was on my short list when I was shopping to replace my Razr HD.
    Held it in my hand and just couldn't pull the trigger. The Z3V I think it was.
    Boxy. Uncomfortable. Didn't like the in hand feel at all.
    This looks much nicer...

    I like Sony products as well. I hope they hit a home run in 2016.

    Sony partners with Qnovo, specializing in the optimization of energy refills and announced that this concert work provides the family Xperia X a better battery life.

    I don't get it. The Xperia is going to get us to stop staring at our phones so damn much? How?

    They aren't, their marketing department is just really really bad.

    Didn't notice the other videos up there. The 2nd one is very good. Camera looks pretty nice and the phone looks fantastic. Take note everyone else: it doesn't have to look like an iPhone to be sexy. Easily the best looking Sony phone ever. ;)

    Will any of this actually matter for those of us on Verizon?

    I doubt there is anybody on Verizon that would even consider anything Sony.
