The Xperia Performance sits at the top of Sony's new line of three Xperia X smartphones, including the Xperia X and the XA. As the name suggests, the Performance is the most powerful of the three, packing a top-end Qualcomm processor. It's also the only one of the bunch that has the waterproof design we've come to expect from Sony.

There's no word on pricing as yet for the phone, and Sony hasn't been exactly clear on where it will be on sale. So far, we've been told it'll go on sale in the US and Asia, but we'll update when we hear about wider availability.
