Sony Xperia X deals, price and release date

The Sony Xperia X is nearly here, and it’s hoping to be your latest mobile of choice. But where can you buy it?

First launched at MWC 2015, Sony’s successor to the Xperia Z5 is the Xperia X. We’ve been waiting a long time to get our hands on the Japanese brand’s latest device, but it seems we don’t have to wait much longer.

The phone features a good set of specs, including Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 650 chipset, 3GB of RAM, and a fingerprint scanner on the side.

There’s some nifty camera tech onboard too, including a 23MP sensor with improved autofocus, an f/2.0 aperture and a bevy of manual camera modes. Selfie lovers are catered for with a 12MP front-facing camera.
