Camera wars are getting intense day by day. Like some smartphone manufacturers introduced a 13 MP front camera in their devices this year. And HTC introduced the first OIS front camera in their latest flagship, the HTC 10.
Today, Sony took one step forward in camera wars and introduced something extraordinary again. Sony has launched a new phone, the Sony Xperia XA Ultra, which has a 16 MP front camera with OIS and autofocus. The front camera has 1/2.6″ sensor size. A LED flash is also there for perfect selfies and it can record videos up to 1080p.
The chipset in this phone is Mediatek MT6755 Helio P10 with Octa-core 2.0 GHz Cortex-A53 CPU and Mali-T860MP2 GPU. The chipset is a mid range one. The back camera is 21 MP with 1/2.4″ sensor size. But the back camera can also record only 1080p videos. This limitation is mainly because of chipset because this chipset does not allow 4K video recording. Back camera has a phase detection autofocus and an LED flash is also there.
Internal storage is 16 GB which is expandable by a Micro SD card up to 200 GB. RAM is 3 GB which is enough for a lag less experience. The Sony Xperia XA Ultra comes with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow out of the box and we hope that it will be upgraded to at least one next major Android version.
The screen size is 6.0 inches with 1080p resolution. The battery is 2,700mAh battery and Sony says that it will last 2 days on a single charge and it also supports quick charging which will charge your phone for a usage of 5.5 hours in just 10 minutes.
The phone will be available in Black, White and Lime Gold and will arrive worldwide in July this year.
