Sony unveils Xperia XA Ultra w/ 16MP OIS selfie camera
Sony has unveiled its latest smartphone under their new X series dubbed as the Xperia XA Ultra. From what it looks like, it’s the successor to the selfie-centric C series.
The Xperia XA Ultra sports a big 6″ 1080p edge-to-edge display similar to the Xperia C5 Ultra and has a metal frame for added premium touch. What’s powering this mid-range device is a MediaTek Helio P10 chipset with 3GB of RAM and it’s running Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow with Sony’s usual customization.
For the rear camera, there is the company’s famous 21.5-megapixel sensor with hybrid autofocus and LED flash. Since this is a selfie camera phone, Sony threw in a whopping 16-megapixel front-facing camera that has optical image stabilization (OIS) and its own LED flash.
