Sony was in the news recently after it launched the Xperia X lineup. Now Sony has already decided to update its line-up with a 6-inch Xperia XA Ultra which will join the X Performance and Xperia X. The phone seems to be aimed at crowd with high media consumption and a flair for photography.
The 6-inch display we are talking about is an end-to-end display with razor thin bezel that would further accentuate the display. Under the hood Xperia XA Ultra is powered by MediaTek Helio P10 SoC paired with a 3GB of RAM. The device offers 16GB of Internal storage along with an microSD card slot that can accommodate up to 200GB. On the imaging front the Xperia XA Ultra boasts of a 21.5-Megapixel primary sensor and a 16-Megapixel secondary sensor with Optical Image Stabilization. The selfie camera is accompanied with a few mention worthy trickery including a hand activated shutter and night portrait mode that blends an image captured with and without using flash.
The 21.5-Megapixel primary sensor is laced with Hybrid autofocus object tracking which consists of both phase detection and contrast-based elements. Additionally, the Xperia XA will also come equipped with fast charging feature and the Ultra battery life mode. One is expected to get a 5.5-hour backup on the phone by just charging it for 10 minutes.
That being said, the Xperia XA still misses out on quite a lot of things including USB Type-C and waterproofing features analogous with the premium Xperia line up. The device will be made available in graphite black, white and lime gold and is expected to start retailing by July. At this juncture the pricing of the phone is still unclear.
