Sony has unveiled a new Xperia X mid-range smartphone, with an accent on camera capabilities and screen dimensions that verge on tablet territory.
Dubbed a “stylish selfie-cam masterpiece’, the Xperia XA Ultra features an edge-to-edge 6-inch 1080p screen with slightly curved edges and a brawny MediaTek eight-core processor to keep it ticking over.
But the XA Ultra's real ‘sell’ is its 16-megapixel front-facing camera, which comes equipped with flash and optical image stabilisation for better selfies. That’s paired with a 21.5-megapixel rear camera with fast-launch and Hybrid Autofocus.
Powered by the latest Marshmallow version of Android, it’s also home to a 2,700mAh battery that Sony claims offers up to two days of battery life and a microSD card slot, so you can expand the on board storage of 16GB by up to 200GB.
The Xperia XA Ultra is due to land on shop shelves in July and comes in a choice of black, white or lime-gold. Pricing has yet to be confirmed.
