Being a newly released device, no one would be expecting a price cut. However, to the surprise of everyone, the Sony Xperia X has gone through a $50 price cut on?Amazon,?B&H and?Best Buy. The original price of this model used to be $549.99. But now, this device can be purchased for $499.99.

Under the hood, Qualcomm?s Snapdragon 650 SoC powers the handset with 3GB of RAM onboard. This device comes equipped with 32GB of native storage space, along with a microSD card slot to facilitate expansion. Without any surprise, the latest Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow runs the handset out of the box.

Camera-wise, a 23-megapixel main and a 13-megapixel secondary Sony Exmor R sensors rule the rear and front of the device, respectively. Readers should, however, note that unlike the flagship, the Xperia X doesn?t come with IP rating.
