Here's how much the Sony Xperia X series costs in the U.S. — and when you'll be able to buy
As the first phones in Sony's new Xperia X series approach launch, we're able to tell you more about exactly when you'll be able to pick up Sony's latest handsets in the United States, and how much they'll set you back. Since the firm hasn't yet announced any carrier partnership, the only way to pick up the Xperia X, Xperia X Performance, Xperia XA or Xperia XA Ultra is SIM-free and unlocked directly from Sony.
Check out the table below to see how things break down. The short version is that while the XA models are relatively affordable, both Xs will set you back a pretty penny. The Xperia X will be first to launch on June 26, followed by the XA and X Performance in mid-July, rounded out by the XA Ultra on July 24.
|Xperia X||June 26||$549.99|
|Xperia XA||July 17||$279.99|
|Xperia X Performance||July 17||$699.99|
|Xperia XA Ultra||July 24||$369.99|

X should be $429
XP should be $549 At those prices they'd stand a chance of selling them. Even then it's arguable there are better phones at each price point. Posted via the Android Central App
Additionally, I don't know how the battery life is on those, but I like that Sony seems to not have too bad of battery life.
If anyone had any sense of marketing the X Performance is there just to sell more XA's. They couldn't give 2 xxxxs about selling the X Performance. This is why the XA design is more thought-through than the others.
