Folks looking forward to get their hands on Sony's Xperia X smartphone may have to wait just a few months longer.

Ever since launching the new smartphone at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in February, along with the Xperia XA and the Xperia X Performance, Sony has not shared any other details about the release date of the device.

Still, the lack of any new word may not necessarily be a bad sign for the device's immediate future.

As of now, the Xperia X and the other recently announced smartphones are currently expected to be made available in the summer, although as PC Advisor UK pointed out, a more specific release date has yet to be shared.

With that particular detail yet to be disclosed, people waiting for the new smartphone will have no other choice but to wait for more news that may be released within the next few months.

While the official release date of the Xperia X may still be unknown, many of its specs and features certainly aren't.

Among the new features that people can expect from the upcoming smartphone are tweaks to its camera.

For example, the addition of the Predictive Hybrid Autofocus feature is expected to allow users to record clearer videos.

The phone's rear camera is also expected to offer as much as 23 megapixels, while the front-facing shooter will be a 13-megapixel unit. The phone's front-facing camera has also been outfitted with sensors that will enable it to function better in places wherein little light is available, according to Sony.

The new phone will also support PS4 Remote Play. With this feature, PlayStation 4 owners can link their consoles to their Xperia X units through their Wi-Fi connections and then proceed to play games while using their standard controllers.

More news about Sony's Xperia X smartphone should be made available later on this year.
