MWC 2016: Sony unveils the Xperia X Performance, X and XA smartphones

Sony unveiled a trio of new phones at MWC 2016 - the Xperia X Performance, the Xperia X and the Xperia XA. Before we dive into their different specs, let's take a look at the common features. All three phones ship with Android 6.0 Marshmallow, sport 5.0-inch displays and have microSD memory card slots. Here's the rundown of each phone:

The Xperia X comes in two configurations - a single and a dual-SIM variant. The single-SIM model has 32GB internal storage space while the dual-SIM variant has double the storage capacity at 64GB. Aside from the different processor (Qualcomm Snapdragon 650) and slightly smaller battery (2,620mAh), the Xperia X is largely similar to the X Performance. It is also slightly thicker at 7.9mm and weighs lighter at 153g. It also has a fingerprint sensor which is integrated with the power button.
