Sony has recently unveiled a mid-range phone at MWC this year and there is an Ultra version of this phone to look forward to as well, the Sony Xperia XA1 Ultra. Most of the Ultra phones from Sony are usually quite big in size and this one is no exception. To learn more about this phone including the Sony Xperia XA1 Ultra Dubai price and specs, keep reading.
The phone includes Ultra in its name for a reason and it’s because of the 6-inch screen size. It’s heavier as well compared to the standard Sony Xperia XA1 and weighs about 188g. It will be showing full HD or 1920 x 1080 pixels resolution and 367ppi of pixel density which is also more than the standard version. The display is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass but we don’t know the version yet. It’s quite thin at 8.1mm and it can be found in four different colors after the Sony Xperia XA1 Ultra release date UAE: Pink, Gold, Black and White. There are no changes in design but the aluminium sides, precision-edge detail and 2.5D glass looks quite attractive if not unique. To make sure users can use this phone with one hand, there is a mini-display feature.
Other than the processor, the rear camera is probably one of the things that’s same as the one you get in the standard Sony Xperia XA1. The 23-megapixel rear camera on the back comes with hybrid autofocus and Exmor RS for mobile sensor which should be able to take flawless pictures even in low-light conditions. The front camera also includes double-digit megapixels, 16-megapixel to be specific and includes LED flash as well which is a unique feature only available in the Ultra version. The wide angle selfie camera is there to make sure all your friends are captured when taking a selfie. For those who are looking for a dual camera phone, there is the Huawei Honor 6X and Huawei P9. These are almost in the same pricing range as the Sony Xperia XA1 Dubai price.
Under the hood, the Sony Xperia XA1 Ultra is packing a Mediatek MT6757 Helio P20 octa-core processor. It will be accompanied by 4GB of RAM and 32GB built-in storage. The battery size might sound disappointing, a 2700mAh non-removable one but it can be recharged quickly thanks to the Pump Express+ 2.0 fast charging technology. Other notable features include: NFC, USB Type-C 1.0 port, USB v2.0 and most of the other necessary connectivity options. It’s not waterproof or dustproof like the other phones released with this one, the Sony Xperia XZs and Sony Xperia XZ Premium. These are not available yet and the Sony Xperia XA1 Ultra release date UAE is expected to be the release date of these phones as well.
The Sony Xperia XA1 Ultra is a mid-range phone and will cost around 1600 AED or SAR (~3200 EGP) when it’s here. We don’t know much about its availability at this point but the Sony Xperia XA1 Ultra release date is expected sometimes in the second quarter of 2017.
