If we talk about some failed smartphone OEMs in tier one brands, Sony is the company which comes in our mind. But Sony is in no mood to reduce the number of smartphone, now today at IFA 2017 event Sony has launched another phone called Xperia XA1 Plus along with Xperia XZ1 and Xperia XZ1 Compact. This is a premium mid-range phone according to Sony. So let’s have look what this phone packs inside..
This Xperia XA1 Plus sports a 5.5” Full HD 1080p IPS LCD display with 401 ppi. But do note that it has scratch resistant glass, no Gorilla Glass protection here. It comes with MediaTek’s Helio P20 octa core processor clocked at 2.3Ghz with Mali-T880MP2 GPU. It has 3GB/4GB RAM variants but both comes with 32GB of internal storage with support for expandable storage via MicroSd Card.
The rear camera is a 23MP shooter with f2.0 lens, PDAF, and single LED flash. For selfies there’s an 8MP shooter f2.0 lens. Both cameras can record videos up to 1080p at 30fps. It runs on Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box. To power up the phone a 3430mAh battery is packed which comes with Pump Express 2.0 , Sony’s fast charging technology.
The fingerprint sensor is embedded in power button which is placed at right side. Other connectivity options like 4G LTE, VoLTE, WiFi, Bluetooth 4.2 , and Type C Port. The phone weights at 198 grams which is very heavy for a device having 5.5” display and 3430mAh battery, and the thickness is 8.7mm.
It comes in four colour variants; Black, Blue, Pink, and Gold. The phone will be available from Autumn 2017, and as of now we don’t know the pricing and regions where the phone is going to be available. But if we talk about the 3GB RAM variant, it will be available in Sound America and USA. And the fingerprint sensor will be ditched in USA variant. Now this is unfair to USA market.
