On Monday, January 7, Japanese mobile phone maker Sony Mobile officially unveiled its new flagship Android-based smartphone, the Xperia Z, set to arrive on shelves globally starting with the first quarter of the year.
The handset packs a large 5-inch full HD screen, along with a quad-core processor inside, and a 13-megapixel photo snapper on the back, with support for full HD video recording.
While the phone indeed managed to impress everyone, there’s certainly room for more, and the Xperia X concept phone that can be admired in the photos attached to this article is meant to confirm that.
Featuring a 5.3-inch touchscreen display and an Nvidia Tegra 4 processor packed inside, along with 2GB of RAM to complement its performance capabilities, the handset should prove a worthy competitor for Samsung’s Galaxy Note II handset, should Sony ever decide to launch it.
The concept phone also sports 64GB of internal memory, along with the same 13-megapixel photo snapper as Xperia Z packed on the back, with HDR. There is a 2MP camera on the front as well to enable video calling.
One thing that should be noted about the phone is the fact that its front camera is placed at the bottom, and that the screen is longer rather than wider.
The Xperia X smartphone concept was also conceived in two color flavors, namely Black and White, as well as with the new interface that Xperia Z featured at CES 2013 in Las Vegas.
We can easily imagine that this concept phone could land on shelves with Google’s Android 4.2 Jelly Bean platform loaded on it, as well as with support for the latest wireless connectivity out there.
For the time being, however, Xperia X is nothing more than a concept device, and users should not get their hopes too high when thinking of grabbing one.
After all, Xperia Z does feature a great deal of high-end features, as well as the latest mobile technology advancements.
