Sony’s announced a variety of mid-high range phones today at Mobile World Congress, all under a new Xperia X umbrella. And there’s something for everyone: A regular Xperia X, the side bezel-free Xperia XA and speed-boosted Xperia X Performance.

The design is certainly sleek, withe the rounded edges looking not dissimilar to an iPhone. Sony claims the 5-inch display on the Xperia X Performance and the Xperia X is curved, but based on what I saw it seems the Gorilla glass is just very slightly curved on the sides. All three phones run Android 6.0 Marshmallow.

The cameras in the Xperia X Performance and the Xperia XA feature a predictive hybrid autofocus technology which we haven’t tried but looks promising. It uses the information provided by the EXMOR sensor to guess where a moving object will be during the next few milliseconds, then adapts the autofocus accordingly.

You can check the rest of the specs in this table. All three phones will be available later this summer, though there’s no word on pricing or availability.

What a misleading title. I was hoping there would be a 4-ish inch phone.
