Sony has recently unveiled not one or two but four new smartphones at Mobile World Congress. While the Sony Xperia XZs and XZ Premium falls in the high-end category, the Sony Xperia XA1 is a mid-range smartphone that comes with attractive borderless design and a good camera. To learn more about this phone including the Sony Xperia XA1 Dubai price and specs, continue reading.
It’s easy to recognize any Sony Xperia phone easily from a distance thanks to the square shaped design of all the latest phones from the company. The Sony Xperia XA1 is not too different from the rest but the smooth rounded form of the phone with near bezel-less display makes the phone look quite good. However, it’s a budget phone and it settles for 720p resolution for its 5.0-inch screen which is slightly disappointing. It’s not IP68 certified as well like the other smartphones released with this phone. After the Sony Xperia XA1 release date UAE, you can start looking for this phone in four different colors: pink, white, gold and black.
There is one thing in common about the latest phones unveiled by Sony which is a great camera. While these phones are not packing the same camera, the Sony Xperia XA1 is packing a decent 23-megapixel rear camera for a mid-range phone which includes Exmor RS for mobile sensor. It’s expected to offer more light and more pixels which we will be able to check out after the Sony Xperia XA1 release date UAE. The 8-megapixel wide-angle selfie lens is there to make sure all your friends fit into the picture. However, there is no flash accompanying the front camera. You can check out the new upcoming Sony XZ phones or the iPhone 7 Plus and Google Pixel XL if you want the best camera focused smartphone.
Most of the smartphones released nowadays pack minimum a 2500mAh battery if not more but this one comes with a 2300mAh battery. It’s definitely disappointing considering the specs inside. However, it can be charged pretty quickly as the phone includes Pump Express+ 2.0 technology for fast battery charging. To make sure users get a smooth Android v7.0 Nougat experience, the phone includes Mediatek Helio P20 octa-core processor with 3GB of RAM and 32GB built-in storage. If you are after a phone with great battery life, there is the Lenovo Vibe P1 and Asus Zenfone Max 2016. These are already available which is not the same for the Sony Xperia XA1 as there is still a long waiting time ahead for the Sony Xperia XA1 release date UAE.
The Sony Xperia XA1 will cost around 1500 AED or SAR (~3000 EGP) when it’s here. It should be out in available in the marketplace sometimes after April 27, 2017.
