Sony Xperia 8 launched with Snapdragon 630 and 12MP dual cameras

The latest launch from Sony is the Xperia 8, a new mid-range smartphone, which will be released in late October in Japan.

Under the hood, we have the Snapdragon 630 chipset paired with 4GB RAM and 64GB of storage which can be further expanded via the microSD slot.

Sony launched the Xperia 10 earlier this year, and one of the biggest downsides to the phone was its lack of water resistance. The phone is expected to go on sale later this month on Y!mobile and will be made available in four color options - white, black, orange, and blue.

The Experia 8 packs a 6.0-inch FHD+ LCD Triluminous display with a tall 21:9 aspect ratio. The company has added a 2,760mAh battery inside the smartphone.

The new Sony Xperia 8 offers two cameras at the back. The Sony Xperia 8 also has a dual-camera setup, with a 12-megapixel primary camera and an 8-megapixel secondary camera. The cameras offer support for features like 2x optical zoom, 4K video recording with EIS, 120fps slow-motion video shooting, and more. The front-facing f/2.0 aperture 8-megapixel camera can shoot beautified shots through the portrait selfie feature. Other noteworthy features include a 3.5mm headphone jack with LDAC for high-resolution audio, NFC and an LED notification light. The Android 9 Pie OS customized with Xperia UI runs on the device.

It's even got that convenient side-mounted fingerprint scanner from the Xperia 10, something that many have enjoyed using over the in-glass scanners that have become popular lately. The company has also included its Side Sense touch sensors.

In terms of dimensions, the phone comes in at 158 x 69 x 8.1mm and weighs in at 170 grams. We're not sure whether or not the phone will make it to other countries at the moment, but if it does here is what you should expect.
