Sony unveiled the Xperia X Compact earlier this month at IFA 2016 and soon after the handset was announced it started taking pre-orders in Europe. Now, customers in the United States can finally pre-order the Xperia X Compact. Those who are interested in picking one up can pre-order this handset via Amazon which is selling it unlocked and off-contract.
Sony Xperia X Compact features a 4.6 inch HD display and is powered by a hexacore Qualcomm Snapdragon 650 processor with 3GB RAM and 32GB of memory that can be externally expanded. It also features a 23 megapixel rear camera, a 2,700mAh battery with Quick Charge 3.0 as well as Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow.
If you’ve been following the news related to this mobile device you may know that the U.S. version of the Xperia X Compact features a disabled fingerprint sensor. Daring users will be able to activate it by flashing a ROM meant for a market where the fingerprint scanner on this handset is enabled by default, but this remedy won’t appeal to everybody.
Sony is now taking pre-orders for the Xperia X Compact in the United States via Amazon. You can pre-order one in Universe Black, White, and Mist Blue colors for $499.99 unlocked and off-contract. The Sony Xperia X Compact will be released in the United States on September 25th.
