Sony Mobile has launched two additions to its new X series smartphones – the flagship Xperia XZ and premium Xperia X Compact which offer an even more intelligent, personalised experience.

Features of Xperia XZ and Xperia X Compact

  • Capture the action laser-fast with true colour

Two additional assisting sensors have been added to make Sony’s triple image sensing technology to allow user to capture beautiful images in motion with true to life colours in virtually any condition.

  • Premium design to fit in your life

The 5.2” glass display and metal back of the Xperia XZ become one, to provide a perfect fit and beautiful feel in the hand. The loop surface is inspired by a monolithic form, whilst ALKALEIDO™ metal with high brightness and high purity provides shine and a feeling of depth which both enhance its premium design.  It is available in a brand new blue colour inspired by the beauty of nature – Forest Blue – along with stylish classics, Mineral Black and Platinum.

Tthe Xperia X Compact’s 4.6” screen and loop surface design make it extra comfortable to hold and is ideal for an operation with just one hand.  Its premium design can be clearly seen via its high-gloss finish and solid feel. It also follows our new signature blue colour expression with a Mist Blue colour hue together with timeless Universe Black and Stylish White.

The Xperia XZ is equipped with a water resistant design. In addition, the fingerprint sensor power button on Xperia XZ and Xperia X Compact is intuitively placed on the side of the phone, so you’re able to pick up and securely unlock in a single movement and adds to the comfortable fit in the hand.

  • Learning your habits to improve your experience

The new X series smartphones are incorporated with intelligent features to make users’ daily life more convenient and enjoyable. Both models feature new Battery Care complemented by Qnovo adaptive charging which work in harmony to keep your battery healthy and make the lifespan last up to twice as long. Xperia Tips also recognises user habits to provide personalised tips and recommendations, helping you optimise your own personal user experience while Smart Cleaner automatically maximises performance by cleaning the cache from certain apps based on learning their usage so optimal performance is achieved at all times.

  • Performance matters

Xperia XZ is driven by its Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 820 processor to provide a seamless experience on your phone. As one of the most cutting-edge mobile processors ever created, the Snapdragon 820 processor with X12 LTE supports the ultimate in connectivity, graphics, photography, power and battery efficiency.

  • Accessories

Xperia XZ and Xperia X Compact each have a range of matching optional Style Covers in corresponding colours including Style Cover Touch (SCTF10/20) which lets you access your favourite smartphone widgets through a smart window without needing to open the case. Each model will be supplied with the new USB Type-C™ charger for easy charging.
