The New Low-Cost Smartphone from Sony Leads with Its Good Looks
Many were in doubt when Sony unveiled yet another handset for the Xperia series at MWC 2016. For the past few years, Sony has been known for its spamming habits, announcing its Xperia handsets twice a year at the least. Some fans find it fun, but some others do not find the recent Sony handsets amusing. Well, the newer devices do feel like just the repackaged versions of the same smartphone. However, this may not be the case with the new Sony Xperia XA specification.
Sony Xperia XA Design
Sony surprises us by putting out an affordable Xperia handset of rare beauty. We may say that the Sony Xperia XA specification is not the best among its peers, but its beautiful design makes up for it. Sony Xperia XA comes with a 5.0 inch IPS LCD touchscreen display that is scratch resistant. The display has a HD screen resolution of 720 x 1280 (a pixel density of 294 ppi). The handset also comes with slightly curved glass edges and thin bezels. It has a matte finish on the back of the phone with near-absence of side frames. In total, Sony Xperia XA has a sophisticated appearance that is second to its rivals.
Sony Xperia XA Specification
Xperia XA comes with Android 6.0 Marshmallow with 1.8 GHz octa core Mediatek MT6755 processor. It also lies 2GB of RAM under the hood, and there is a Mali-T860 MP2 graphic processor that takes care of the graphic side. This Sony Xperia XA specification is sufficient for smooth navigation between the apps and games. On the camera side, we will find a 13MP autofocus primary camera that has a Exmor-RS CMOS sensor and LED flash. The camera for selfie lovers sports 8MP autofocus and Exmor-R-CMOS sensor. Sony Xperia XA packs an internal memory of 16GB that can be expanded up to 200GB with a microSD card.
Sony Xperia XA Battery and Connectivity
The smartphone packs a 2300mAh non removable battery inside its 143.60 x 66.80 x 7.90 (height x width x thickness) body. The 137.40 gr weighed handset supports 4G, WiFi 802.11, b/g/n, Mobile hotspot and microUSB 2.0 and NFC. Unfortunately, the device can only support a single GSM card, although it accepts a Nano-SIM. Sony Xperia XA specification may be second to its design, but it is a nice option for a lo-cost smartphone.
