Together with the Xperia XA1 and XA1 Compact, Sony is also updating their XA lineup with the Sony Xperia XA1 Plus.
The new Sony Xperia XA1 Plus will join the XA1 and XA1 Premium in filling their mid-range offering. Just like most Xperia devices today, the XA1 Plus touts killer primary and selfie camera features.
At the back, it is loaded with a 23-megapixel shooter with an Exmor RS sensor. It also has an ultra-fast 0.6s launch and capture time. Optical stabilization is missing, but we’ll leave that to the higher-end models. In front, it has an 8-megapixel Exmor R shooter with SteadyShot. It’s good to know that the primary camera is still Sony’s top-priority, despite the pressure from the competitors.
Also on the front, we have a 5.5-inch 1080p screen, while on the inside is a MediaTek Helio P20 octa-core processor. Definitely not the fastest, but one of the best from MediaTek today.
All these are being powered by a decent-sized 3430mAh battery which has Pump Express+ 2.0 quick-charging compatibility and Qnovo adaptive charging.
