Sony’s Xperia X lineup now has a new addition to the family. Previously believed to be the Xperia C6 Ultra, it is now known as the XA Ultra; seems like Sony really is dropping the Xperia C and M series in favour of the new Xperia X branding.
As its name suggests, the Xperia XA Ultra shares similar hardware with the smaller Xperia XA, including the near bezel-less display. The former also has a big 6-inch 1080p display, a MediaTek Helio P10 processor paired with 3GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot (it can accommodate cards up to 200GB), as well as Android Marshmallow out of the box.
Curiously, despite the fact that the Xperia XA Ultra is a big device, it only has a 2,700mAh battery; devices this size usually has a much more generous battery capacity, such as the Huawei Mate 8 and Xiaomi Mi Max. Regardless, Sony still claims that the XA Ultra has up to two days of battery life.
Things get a lot more interesting in the camera department. The rear camera has a 21.5MP sensor with Hybrid Auto-Focus, which is good, but the front-facing camera is the highlight of the XA Ultra. Not only is the front camera a 16MP shooter, it even boasts optical image stabilisation and an LED flash.
The Sony Xperia XA Ultra is set to be available from July onwards in three different colours: White, Black, and Lime Gold. Unfortunately, the retail price of Sony’s new offering has not been revealed yet.
