Sony’s high-end phablet, the Sony Xperia XA1 Ultra is now available for purchase in the country.
The Sony Xperia XA1 Ultra might have some impressive set of features, but it is not their current flagship — you can leave that privilege title to the Xperia XZ Premium. The only diminishing factor is the MediaTek Helip P20 that’s powering the XA1 Ultra, while the latter rocks the best-in-class Snapdragon 835 chipset.
But other than that, the Sony Xperia XA1 Ultra has nothing but the best-looking spec sheet you’ll see on a dated device. It features a ginormous 6-inch 1080p display, with Sony’s display tech shenanigans.
It also has an overblown 23-megapixel rear shooter and an indispensable 16-megapixel selfie camera, runs on Android 7.0 Nougat, and is packed with 4GB of RAM.
The only stumbling block that makes this an overall attractive device is its battery. The Xperia XA1 Ultra only has a 2700mAh battery. But as an equalizer, it does support Qnovo adaptive charging which promises faster recharging times and longer battery life.
