Xperia™ X Compact / Smartphone

Xperia™ X Compact

Discipline: Product

Discipline: Product

High functionality, crammed into a compact smartphone. We strived to deliver a size and fit that feels comfortable in your hands and give it a sense of harmony, modeled with a "Loop Surface" theme and visualized in attractive colors and materials. The shiny, solid colors radiate a feeling of ceramics that has never been expressed in smartphones until now. The power of design has produced this aura of warmth that makes the smartphone feel more like a cozy part of your everyday life.
