Sony has announced a new mid-range device in its recently announced X series. The Xperia XA Ultra is a phablet device in the budget category. Although, there is no announcement on the pricing or the availability of the device, it is right to assume that the phone will come in Europe first, followed by parts of Asia Pacific and then to North America, if at all. The Xperia XA Ultra is likely to take on the likes of Xiaomi Max, but with the Chinese brand holding the cards thanks to its fantastic pricing, there is very little you can see going fr the Xperia XA Ultra, including a Sony brand name, which has taken a bit of a battering in the recent past.
On the specs front, the device comes with a 6 inch 1080P panel with Sony Bravia Engine 2. The device is powered by a Helio P10 chipset. It is interesting that Sony has decided to go with MediaTek rather than Sanpdragon chipset on their device. On the memory front, you get 3GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage with an expansion possible via MicroSD card of up to 200GB. The Xperia XA Ultra would be available in both, dual as well as single SIM variants.
The rear camera on the phone is a 21.5 MP unit with 1/2.4″ Exmos RS Sensor while the front facing snapper is a 16 MP shooter with a 88 degree wide lens. The phone features a 2700 mAh battery and has support for all the expected connectivities. On the software front, you get Android 6.0 out of the box.
