Sony has released the Xperia X back in May 2016, while the Xperia XZ has just been announced yesterday. Today we will compare these two smartphones and let you decide if you want to purchase the Sony Xperia X device or wait for the Sony Xperia XZ to hit the stores.


The Xperia X measures 142.7×69.4×7.9mm and weights 153 grams. It has a metal body and a 2.5D glass rounded bevel screen that give it a premium look and it has a circular rear camera that sits in the upper left corner. On the other hand, the Xperia XZ is slightly thicker and heavier as it measures 146x72x8.1mm and weights 161 grams. This model comes with a “unified design”, as Sony returned to the glass and metal combination, but these materials blend seamlessly together, because the sides are rounded and sloping, and they extend from the flat-faced front to the flat rear panel.


The Xperia X has been released with an IPS LCD display of 5-inch that supports a resolution of 1920×1080 pixels at 441 ppi. The Xperia XZ has a larger IPS LCD display of 5.2-inch that supports a resolution of 1920×1080 pixels at 424 ppi.

Processors, Graphics Cards & RAM

The Xperia X features a Qualcomm MSM8956 Snapdragon 650 chipset, a dual-core Cortex A72 CPU clocked at 1.8GHz and a quad-core Cortex A53 CPU clocked at 1.4GHz, an Adreno 510 graphics card and 3GB of RAM. The Xperia XZ comes with a Qualcomm MSM8996 Snapdragon 820 chipset, a dual-core Kryo CPU clocked at 1.6GHz and a dual-core Kryo CPU clocked at 2.15GHz, an Adreno 530 graphics card and 3GB of RAM.


Both devices have been released in two internal storage variants of 32GB and 64GB which you can expand up to 256GB using a microSD card.


When it comes to cameras it seems that these two smartphones come with a primary camera of 23MP that features LED flash, phase detection autofocus, touch focus, geo-tagging, panorama, touch focus and a secondary camera of 13MP.


The Xperia X is powered by a non-removable battery of 2620 mAh which is weaker than the non-removable battery of 2900 mAh that the Xperia XZ features.
