The Sony Xperia X is an Android smartphone produced by Sony. Part of the Sony Xperia X series, the device was unveiled along with the Sony Xperia XA and Sony Xperia X Performance at MWC 2016 on February 22, 2016.[2] The Sony Xperia X series will replace the former Sony Xperia Z series, as confirmed by Sony Mobile's senior product marketing manager Jun Makino in February 2016.[3]

At the 2017 Investor Day event, Sony announced it would be dropping its "premium standard" phones (one step below the flagship premium models), including the Xperia X and X Compact.[4] The flagship X Performance and XZ phones will continue, as well as the XA1, XA1 Ultra, and the upcoming XZ1 and XZ1 Compact.[5]

The front facing camera is 13MP with a 1/3" EXMOR RS for mobile sensor and has a 22mm equivalent F2.2 lens.

The phone features QNOVO adaptive battery charging technology which aims to extend the lifespan of the battery.
