Imagine taking photos with a smartphone that can predict movement so well, it’s almost psychic. Luckily, you don’t have to fantasize about such a device—meet the Sony Xperia X, powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 650 processor, and the Sony Xperia X Performance, which uses the Snapdragon 820.

Both smartphones feature Sony’s new flagship camera, designed so you can select your subject and it can automatically track it as it moves. The 23-megapixel rear camera can also go from standby to capture in less than 0.6 seconds, making sure that you won’t miss even the most spontaneous moment.

The Snapdragon 650 powering the Xperia X is engineered to deliver high-quality multimedia and performance. The integrated Snapdragon X8 LTE modem supports Category 6 connection speeds.

Thanks to the Snapdragon 820 processor, the Sony Xperia X Performance takes connectivity to the next level. The integrated Snapdragon X12 LTE modem supports Category 9 connection speeds. And the Qualcomm Kryo 280 CPU is designed to deliver double the performance and efficiency compared with the previous-generation, which means better overall power management.

The Xperia X and Xperia X Performance also incorporate Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0 fast charging technology and Sony’s Smart Battery Management feature, for up to 5.5 hours of power in just 10 minutes of charging, and a charge that can last up to two days. Thanks to Sony Smart Battery Management, the battery lifespan itself will last up to twice as long, too.
