Sony has surprised everyone by coming up with the Xperia XA Ultra which boasts of having a 16MP front camera that’s equipped with optical image stabilization of all traits. This new phablet ships with a 6-inch monitor and features a bezel-less design incorporating a metal frame.
Despite its appearance, the new Sony Xperia XA Ultra is a mid-range device. Its 6-inch display bears 1080p full HD resolution, while its processing is handled by a 2GHz octa core MediaTek Helio P10 CPU. Its unique selling point is hence its camera setup.
The front as well as rear shooters have flash modules placed beside them for low-light photography. The 16MP autofocus front camera on this Sony offering goes for OIS which will translate into high resolution shots that are not spoiled by slight shakes of the hand.
Here’s a quick glance at the main specs of the new Sony Xperia XA Ultra:
– Display: 6-inch, 1080p full HD resolution
