Although Sony’s Xperia XA1 has been available to purchase in the US since May 1, for some reason it took the company this long to also bring its bigger sibling stateside. We’re talking about the XA1 Ultra, which has only today been released in the US.
You can pick one up from Best Buy in black, white, pink, and gold. Regardless of which hue you choose, you’ll need to shell out $399.99 for an unlocked unit that will work with GSM-based carriers like AT&T and T-Mobile only (and the MVNOs that use their networks of course).
The Xperia XA1 Ultra comes with a 6-inch 1080p touchscreen with minimal lateral bezels, a 23 MP main camera, as well as a 16 MP selfie shooter with OIS, f/2.0, and its own LED flash. The handset is powered by MediaTek’s Helio P20 chipset, aided by 4GB of RAM and 32GB of expandable storage. The lights are kept on by a rather small 2,700 mAh battery. The phone runs Android 7.0 Nougat.
