Sony is launching another mid-range Xperia smartphone at MWC having an undoubtedly bigger front camera sensor this time. To compete with the generic selfie-loving smartphones Sony Xperia XA Ultra will be stepping into the ring with a 16MP front camera sensor as well as a 21MP rear sensor. Yeah, you read it right. While this phone has been named “Ultra” you might get what the game plan here is. This new model will feature a 6-inch 1080p display which is bigger than any other selfie competitor on the market. This is dramatically larger than the 5-inch display which is not the demand of the customers of today, though Sony managed to design this phone as it’s similar siblings.
This 6-inch display, with a pixel density of 300ppi, is still only 1920×1080 resolution, which is respectable at this mid-range; the phones in this level cannot touch the QHD display because of price constraints. Regardless of the extra large screen, Sony is guaranteeing its standard mechanism of 2 Days solid battery life from just the 2700mAh battery capacity. It’s powered by a MediaTek MT6755 processor and 3GB of RAM which is pretty common this year, and promising to run Android 6.0 Marshmallow. There’s 16GB of storage, with a microSD card slot that offers 200GB of memory expansion.
As I said earlier, this is the mid-range smartphone where Sony is highly focusing on the selfie-obsessed customers with a large front facing sensor. The 16MP camera sensor is not typical with most of the selfie-smartphones like Asus Zenfone Selfie, Oppo F1 Selfie, HTC Desire Eye and others. While jumping from 8MP to 16MP is a way better approach this time by Sony. This Sony Xperia XA incorporates the Sony OIS system and also a typical selfie flash. Furthermore, this device can boost up your rear camera experience. The Sony Xperia XA Ultra is set to be released after July.
