The Xperia XA Ultra is essentially the rumoured Xperia C6 Ultra that’s been floating around the internet, sporting roughly the same build and specs.
Under the hood, the phone has a MediaTek MT6755 chip mated to 3GB RAM and 16GB storage, expandable via microSD slot to 200GB. It also has a rather phablety 6-inch 1080p display, with some of the hugest cameras on a mobile device.
The Xperia XA Ultra has a 16MP front camera with OIS, with the rear shooter being a 21.5MP camera with hybrid autofocus. Both cameras have an LED flash , and the front camera has gesture shutter for those moments you can’t press the button yourself.
This puts the Xperia XA Ultra head to head with the OPPO F1 Plus in terms of its front-facing camera, with the F1 Plus also sporting a 16MP selfie snapper.
Last but not least the Xperia XA Ultra will come out of the box with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, supports dual SIM and its 2700 mAh battery is rated to last 2 days on a single charge. Apparently the quick charging tech allows you to grab 5.5 hours of usage out of 10 minutes of charging, though we will probably look at real world usage before we back this claim up.
The device is expected to hit the market come this July with three colour options; Black, White and Lime Gold. No word on the pricing yet, but we are hoping for a local launch.
