Does X Performance have a reset button?

Does Xperia X Performance have a reset button similar to the red button next to SIM slot in Z series phones? I can't find anything like that and I can't restart my device using the power and volume up doesn't take any effect. My screen is frozen and doesn't react to any buttons but curiously the led flash is continuously on.

 

Any ideas what I could do? Removing the SIM card and pressing/holding power button, also with combination of volumue up and dwon keys didn't help.

Removing and re-inserting the SIM card should restart the phone, also the power & volume up for more than 10 seconds should restart it.

Thank you uliwooly, I tried both but to no avail. The flash is constantly on and didn't even blink when I attempted to restart the device.

That's quite odd, what if you let the battery drain then > connect the phone to a wall charger > let it charge for 2 hours > repair it with XC

Don't think any of the x range have a reset button, and my xa doesn't. I'm guessing now we'll have to use vol up and the power button till it vibrates three times.

I'll probably try that but I'm afraid just with the flash it might take days before the battery is fully drained :-/ It was at a level of at least 60% charge before it happened.
