Sony today launched the Xperia XA Ultra for the Indian market. The phablet offers a large 6-inch display and is mainly targeted at selfie fanatics with its 16MP selfie camera.
The Xperia XA Ultra features a 6-inch 1080 x 1920 Full HD resolution display, making it the biggest Xperia X series smartphone yet. It runs on the MediaTek Helio P10 octa-core chipset, clocked at 2GHz with the Mali-T860MP2 GPU. The chipset is paired with 3GB of RAM and only 16GB of expandable onboard storage.
The primary camera is a 21.5MP Sony Exmor RS unit of the 1/2.4” type and integrates Sony’s Hybrid Autofocus tech that we have seen on Xperia flagship smartphones such as the Xperia Z5 line. The selfie camera on the camera not only offers 16MP resolution, but it also integrates optical image stabilization (OIS) and a dedicated LED flash.
One area where the Xperia XA Ultra isn’t the most impressive is battery life. Sony has equipped the large phablet with only a 2700mAh capacity battery, so battery life isn’t quite stellar. Rest of the spec-sheet includes all the usual modern connectivity features and Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS with Sony’s custom Android skin on top.
The phablet will be available in Graphite Black, White, and Lime Gold colors in India.
