Sony came out of nowhere today and announced a new handset, the Xperia XA Ultra, which is actually a big 6 inch phablet focused on selfies. The device packs a 16 megapixel selfie camera with OIS and brings an edge to edge display, plus a metal frame.
This is a midranger that seems to stick to the design of the Xperia X series and provides solid specs when it comes to the optics. The front camera is the core here, since it brings both a high resolution and optical image stabilization, as well as a gesture shutter. The device comes with quick charging, meaning you can get 5.5 hours of use after 10 minutes of charging. You will have to purchase the charger separately.
Here are the specs of the newcomer:
- Display: 6 inch, Full HD
- CPU: MediaTek Helio P10
- RAM: 3 GB
- Storage: 16 GB, microSD
- Battery: 2700 mAh
- Camera: 21 MP Back (hybrid AF)/ 16 MP front
The device has a polycarbonate back and it’ll be available from July in black, white or yellow. Pricing is yet unknown.
