Sony unveils the Xperia XA Ultra with a giant, ‘bezel-less’ display

Sony Mobile Communications today announced a new addition to the revamped Xperia X series — the deceptively small Xperia XA Ultra. 

With its large 6″ Full HD screen, 16 MP front camera, powerful low-light sensor, up to two days battery life, and stylish thin design with a borderless screen, it is a fantastic mid-range smartphone.

For selfie lovers, it boasts a 16MP front camera, and features Sony’s renowned low-light sensors. It features a smart selfie flash to naturally illuminate your face for night scene selfies plus Optical Image Stabilisation to counter hand shake for both photos and videos.

Taking your selfie is made even easier with the Hand Shutter feature, just raise a hand and the shutter timer will start to count down, leaving you time to make the perfect pout and strike a pose.

Capturing the perfect spontaneous shot is also possible with the super-fast main camera featuring 21.5 megapixels, Hybrid Autofocus and quick launch and capture so you can go from standby to capture in a fraction of a second.

While its display measures 6 inches diagonally, it comes in a frame similarly sized to the 5.5″ Xperia Z5 Premium, thanks to the infinity-feel borderless display with curved glass. The display is encased by a metal surround that creates a seamless feel in your hand.

Despite the large screen, its 7.6mm thin design and One-handed Operation Mode means you can still use it comfortably in one hand.

Xperia XA Ultra might have a big, bright display, but that doesn’t compromise the Sony battery standard. You still get up to 2-days of battery life* from a single charge, leaving you more time to chat, snap and watch. Need a quick battery top-up? Use XA Ultra together with Quick Charger UCH12 and get 5.5 hours of battery life in just 10 minutes.

Additionally, with integrated Qnovo adaptive charging technology the lifetime of your battery is extended so over time you get much more use out of your device.

Xperia XA Ultra is available in Graphite Black, White, or Lime Gold from July in selected markets, which will include the US, UK, and Singapore. A choice of covers are available to complement and protect Xperia XA Ultra, including Style Cover Flip which offers an auto on/off for the screen when opening and closing the case in corresponding colours.
