Selfie phones are not something new. We’ve seen some selfie phones before such as the HTC which owned 13 MP Selfie Eye which was a very good experience. Selfie phones focus mainly on improving the front camera and adding more features to it such as flashlights and autofocus to target the increasing number of selfie lovers. In this article, we’re inspecting the most recent selfie phone announced by Sony.
Sony has lately announced its new phone to join the Xperia family. The new phone is called “Xperia XA Ultra”. The phone is primarily a selfie phone with a great 16 MP front-facing camera and flash. The front camera also features optical image stabilization. The importance of this feature is to prevent blurring in photos.
Xperia XA Ultra’s rear camera is not less powerful. The phone comes with a 21.5 MP rear camera which employs the Exmor RS sensor. Rear camera features quick launch and auto focus. It’s very obvious that Sony is trying to make this mobile a camera-centric device.
Talking about other features, the phone offers a large 6-inch 1080p borderless screen. The devices use a MediaTekocta-core processor with 3GB of RAM. It comes with 16 GB of internal storage, which is quite small for modern phones. However, storage can be expanded up to 200GB via a MicroSD card. The battery is a 2700 mAh one which seems to be poor compared to other features of the phone. However, Sony claims that it’s supposed to last up to two days on a single charge. Also, the battery is quick chargeable and the quick charger would give the device 5.5 hours of battery life in just 10 minutes of charging.
The Sony Xperia XA Ultra will be released in July in some specific markets. However, Sony has not released the pricing for its new phone yet. Sony is working hard to attract users to its mid-range phones by stressing specific additional features such as cameras in this mobile. But how many users would purchase a normal phone just to make use of its powerful cameras? That’s a thing to know next July after the phone is released.
