The Xperia X8 should be hitting retail shelves during the next few weeks and as we get closer to launch, new details are trickling out. First of all is confirmation that the Xperia X8 will also be available in black (we’ve only seen a white model in the previews and official promo videos so far).
The Xperia X8 is very similar to the X10 mini series but comes with a slightly larger display (3.0-inches compared to 2.6-inches for the X10 mini). However the camera sensor is not as good (only 3.2MP with no autofocus). This, however, means that pricing should be cheaper than the X10 mini.
In the UK, Tesco’s has the O2 version of the Xperia X8 for £129.97, whilst Italian site Cellulare.net has it for €189.90. Plemix also has it listed for $259. Whichever currency you’re looking at, it seems good value for money.
We have also caught eyes on the first benchmark for the phone thanks to Sogi. The Quadrant benchmark delivers a score of a not-too-shabby 409, comparing to 475 for the Xperia X10. It’s worth remembering the X8 has a 600MHz processor compared to the 1GHz processor in the X10.
We’ve also included a couple of new promo videos of the phone below.
