Sanjaya Kanishka saw the Sony Xperia Z getting introduced at CES 2013 and thought it wasn’t enough. Thus, the designer envisioned a superior device, dubbed Xperia Pro X, that features a secondary Tactus display, used as a keyboard or gaming control area. Tactus is a screen manufacturer, that’s looking for a solution when it comes to touch input that feels like the physical one.

Sony Xperia Pro X is inspired by the Tactus technology and as far as design goes, it looks quite a bit like the Xperia Z, keeping the rectangular shape. Its features include a 5 inch LED backlit IPS+ TFT screen with 1080p resolution and 443 ppi. Mobile Bravia Engine 2 is also here, as well as Corning Gorilla Glass 3 and that secondary display for input/gaming. Inside the device there’s a 2.3 GHz quad core processor, a Snapdragon 800 chipset with Adreno 330 GPU.

At the back we’ve got a 13 megapixel Exmor RS camera, with 1080p HDR video recording, dual LED flash and accompanied by a front 2 megapixel camera. Other specs include 16 GB of storage, a microSD card slot and 2 GB of RAM. DLNA, NFC, WiFi hotspot and Bluetooth 4.0 are all here, together with USB 3.0 support. Xperia Pro X runs Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean and packs a 3200 mAh Li-Ion battery. It’s available in white, black, pink and gold and it has a sliding form factor, for the second screen.

The buttons on the Tactus keyboard are supposed to “pop out”, giving a real sensation of typing and gaming. If you’re wondering about that, there’s a Tactus demo below:

    Nice and good idea. But in the box should include accessories like flip cover, screen protector etc. Sony has the best innovation but the thing is accessories will become available to the market when the unit are about to be phased out from the market.

    The processor should be higher. My xplay seem to slow down and hangs when ps games are active

    @ Alex : thanks and yeah you are right. need some accessories like that.
    with the processor, i don’t think so..this has a Snapdragon 800 which is clocked up to 2.3GHz and snapdragon 800 is to compete with Cortex A15 processors. this chip is not available in any device yet. Qualcomm announce the Snapdragon 800 at CES last week

    Maybe sony will include in their innovation the wireless battery charging

    This migth replace the xperia play but will this idea come to production. If then as when? I’ wait for this. But if Sony will not put this into prroduction then another company might benefit on it.

    @Alex : Sony wireless charging will be awesome. Sony, Samsung and Nokia is good in slider of them will manufacture this in future, i guess.
