Xperia X Gold

The Sony Xperia X is a mid-tier smartphone announced at MWC 2016, which features a Snapdragon 650 processor, a 5-inch display and more.

Unlike the Xperia XA, which is the most basic in the new X series line, the X is a mid-range smartphone. It doesn’t look as good as the XA because it doesn’t have that edge-to-edge display. However, the 5-inch display on the X has a 1080p resolution, so the colors are better and brighter.
