Sony has announced a handful of devices this year. The Xperia XA, Xperia X and Xperia X Performance were introduced back in February during the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona, while the Xperia XA Ultra and Xperia E5 arrived quite recently. That being said, back in February, Sony released the availability info for the Xperia X devices, and they did not have plans to release the Xperia X Performance in UK or Germany. This fact, of course, didn’t sit well with Xperia fans in those two European countries. Well, if you live in the UK or Germany, or anywhere else in Europe for that matter, you’ll be glad to hear that the device will be available soon, even though Sony will not sell it directly, read on.
The UK-based retailer, Clove, has confirmed that the Xperia X Performance will be available in the UK starting from mid-July. The unlocked devices will be available for £549 from the retailer, and considering Clove ships pretty much everywhere (at least in Europe), the device will be available to a wide range of countries. If you live in Europe, chances are you will be able to order this smartphone from Clove, and the company actually offers worldwide shipping, so no matter where you live, it would be wise to go check out Clove’s shipping guidelines for more information. The Xperia X Performance was the most powerful out of the three devices Sony introduced back in February, so let’s check out its specs real quick, shall we.
The Xperia X Performance comes with a 5-inch fullHD (1920 x 1080) display, 3GB of RAM and 32GB of expandable internal storage. This device is fueled by the Snapdragon 820 64-bit quad-core processor, along with the Adreno 530 GPU. The 23-megapixel snapper can be found on the back of the Xperia X Performance, and a 13-megapixel camera is placed up front. The 2,700mAh battery is also a part of this package, and it is not removable. Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow comes pre-installed on the Xperia X Performance, and on top of it, you’ll be able to find Sony’s custom UI. This device is also IP68 certified for water and dust resistance, while it measures 143.7 x 70.4 x 8.7mm, and weighs 164.4 grams.
