Sony unveiled the latest iteration of the Xperia X smartphone range, the Xperia XA Ultra. Tech experts appreciate the phone's large 6-inch screen and its high-performance cameras.
According to GSM Arena, Sony has introduced the 6-inch Xperia XA Ultra as a replacement for the popular Xperia C5 Ultra. Fans of phablets with selfie cameras and top-spec have been worried since the high-tech company announced the demise of the C and M series.
Now Sony reassures its loyal customers that they will not be left without options. The Xperia XA Ultra comes to address those needs for good cameras and high-end specs.
The new 6-inch model is the latest update of the freshly introduced Xperia X smartphone range. The Xperia XA Ultra is a larger phone targeted at younger owners. According to CNet, the device is making a marketing statement focused on the attention-grabbing screen and its photography prowess.
Design-wise, the Ultra does not come with much novelty. But this model stands out due to the super-thin bezel and the edge-to-edge display. These design features make the XA Ultra easier to keep a hold of.
The phone's front-facing 16-megapixel camera comes with a super-wide angle designed to produce bright selfies in all light conditions. The camera also comes with optical image stabilization, which is a usual feature for Sony.
Selfies are enhanced further by a couple of other features such as a timer and a hand-activated shutter in the top corner. Additionally, the night portrait mode can present a single, well-balanced photo by combining an image taken with the flash on and an image with the flash off. This way, the background and the foreground are both adequately lit.
The Xperia XA Ultra also comes with a high-performance main camera, capable of an impressive 21.5 megapixels resolution. The camera also comes with built-in hybrid autofocus object tracking.
Sony's newest mobile phone is powered by the same Mediatek processor as the Xperia XA. The Xperia XA Ultra comes with 16GB of internal expandable storage and 3GB of RAM.
The only high-end specs missing in Xperia XA Ultra are the USB-C support and waterproofing. The pricing and the availability are unknown yet.
