The new Walkman Video MP3 player comes under Sony’s X-series. It’s a portable entertainment device, which is Wi-Fi enabled and features an Organic Light Emitting Diode (OLED) touch screen, Sony’s Digital Clear Audio Technologies, as well as embedded content provided by Slacker Radio and YouTube.
Featuring a 3-inch OLED touch screen, the player promises better color reproduction, high contrast, and a rapid response rate. With a 180-degree viewing angle, the display allows for video playback and photo viewing.
Additionally, when watching movies on the device, the image on the screen can be adjusted based on the user’s preference, while navigation has been simplified via a feature called scene scroll. Utilizing the scene scroll feature, the company says, users can select their preferred time increment and swipe across the screen to scroll forward and backward through scenes.
Sony’s X-series Walkman is claimed to be the industry’s first video MP3 player to offer integrated digital noise canceling technology. The new model uses a built-in digital noise canceling (DNC) software engine to block out ambient noise, while providing a high-quality audio experience.
Its battery life is up to 33 hours of music playback and up to 9 hours of video playback.
The X-series Walkman video MP3 player is available now for pre-sales on sonystyle.com. The device will come in black in two different storage capacities, the NWZ-X1051 with 16GB of internal storage and the NWZ-X1061 with 32GB, and cost $299 and $399 respectively.
Both models can be found in Sony Style stores and select retailers mid-June.
