Sony Xperia XA Ultra Hits the US Market at $369,99 Unlocked
In one of my previous articles I mentioned the fact that Sony released its Xperia X line of smartphones in the US and today’s piece of intel is that the best of the bunch, the Xperia XA Ultra is now available for $369,99 unlocked and loaded. The latest member of the family sort to speak joins the party, along with its kin i.e. the Xperia X, XA and X Performance and it can be purchased fromÂ Best Buy,Â AmazonÂ andÂ B&H.
The $369,99 figure Â is actually the recommended retail price but you can get lucky and grab it even cheaper than that, as some retailers may go belowÂ the MSRP.Â If you need a jump start, let me refresh your memory by telling you that theÂ Xperia XA Ultra was released officially earlier this month and offers quite a punch for its price tag, but the main selling point of the smartphone is its selfie camera.
Since vanity is the devil’s favorite sin, theÂ Xperia XA Ultra features an impressive 16 megapixels secondaryÂ snapper with a hugeÂ 1/2.6″ sensor and a dedicated LED flash, which is Â very uncommon for a front facing camera. To put things into perspective, the Samsung Galaxy S6 uses a similar camera sensor/resolution asÂ its primary shooter.
Aside from its spectacular front facing camera, the SonyÂ Xperia XA Ultra is pretty similar to its smaller sibling, the regularÂ XA, but with a twist. For example, the Ultra particle means that the displayÂ is larger, standing at 6” of real estate screen with a higher (1080p/Full HD) resolution; also this baby is slender, being actually the narrowest six shooter (as in inches) I know of. The hardware platform is aÂ MediaTek MT6755 Helio P10 system on chip (octa-core architecture) with the CPUs clocked at 2 GHz, together with 3 gigabytes of RAM and aÂ Mali-T860MP2 GPU.
