Sony has launched its new premium smartphone in India. Called the Sony Xperia XA1 Ultra, the device, like all of Sony’s smartphones, has great camera features and also shows off refined innards. The new Xperia device has been priced competitively at Rs 29,990. This is Sony’s latest effort in engaging the consumers to its Xperia range of smartphones, which offers very good features and stand their own against the flagship devices offered by others, including against the Samsung Galaxy S8.
Sony Xperia XA1 Ultra Specs and Features
The launch comes months after the Xperia XA1 came to the country. Originally unveiled at this year’s MWC, the device is powered by the Octa-Core 64-bit MediaTek Helio processor paired with Mali T880 MP2 900MHz GPU. These hardware features will ensure that the new device is as powerful as many of its competitors.
Also, the Sony Xperia XA1 Ultra sports a 6-inch FHD display that boasts a resolution of 1080×1920 pixels. Powered by 4GB of RAM and with 64GB of inbuilt/native storage (expandable to up to 256GB via a microSD card slot), the new device will please even the most demanding of users.
With very good cameras on the rear and front, the Sony Xperia XA1 Ultra will also be a photographer’s delight. The rear camera has a 23MP Exmor RS lens, and this is packed with a lot of features. Some of them are hybrid autofocus, a very sensibly added 24mm wide-angle lens, as well as f/2.0 aperture, 5x zoom, and a very beautifully crafted HDR mode.
Out front, the snapper has a very good 16MP Exmor RS sensor boasting a great-for-selfies 23mm wide-angle lens, besides a f/2.0 aperture, OIS or Optical Image Stabilization, and autofocus. The front-facing camera has an LED flash for company.
A hint of disappointment comes in the form of the battery which is a measly 2700mAh. The new Sony Xperia XA1 Ultra will run Android Nougat 7.0 out-of-the-box. With connectivity options like LTE (4G), LTE Cat6/4, GSM GPRS/EDGE (2G), and UMTS HSPA+ (3G) and the very sensible price tag, this new device will be a hard act to match.
