Sony's mid-range wonder now here

AFTER making waves at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona in February, the Sony Xperia XA1 Ultra finally lands in stores nationwide. Sporting a sleek borderless design and performance driven specs, Sony’s brand new XA1 Ultra sets the bar high for smartphones in its price range. 

A Screen to Love 

The XA1 Ultra touts a generous 6” borderless Full HD screen with 2.5D glass for a comfortable fit. An immersive viewing experience awaits you right at the palm of your hand when watching your favorite movies or playing action-packed games. With precision-edge detailing, aluminum sides and the endless loop surface, the XA1 Ultra’s polished design is a wonder to behold.

Crisp Photos, Sharper Selfies

Taking their decades of experience in producing best in class digital cameras, Sony has equipped the XA1 Ultra with an impeccable rear camera that can shoot photos up to 23 megapixels in resolution with a large, 1/2.3-inch Exmor™ RS for mobile sensor and bright F2.0 lens so that photos will still come out beautifully. Combining Hybrid Autofocus and its quick launch and capture feature, the camera is able to capture subjects with speed and accuracy. 

Sony outs the highly anticipated Xperia XA1 Ultra in the Philippines 

The XA1 Ultra also features a 23mm-wide, 16 megapixel front camera that’s equipped with an Optical Image Stabilizer which helps eliminate effects of handshake, ensuring sharp selfies all the time. Its front camera is wide enough to take group selfies without missing anyone out, too. Topping off its selfie-enhancing features is a smart selfie flash which helps illuminate your face and a ‘Hand Shutter’ camera option that takes photos via simple wave of your hand. 

Every Bit Efficient 

Built for efficiency, the Xperia XA1 Ultra is powered by a MediaTek Helio P20 octa-core processor. This powerful processor assures your phone stays lag-free while you browse online, watch videos, or play mobile games. The XA1 Ultra also totes Qnovo Adaptive Charging technology that monitors the battery’s health and adjusts charging current at just the right levels to avoid damage and maximize its lifespan. The XA1 Ultra also supports quick charging, giving you hours of smartphone use in just a few minutes.  Cache and unused apps are also automatically cleared by Sony’s Smart cleaner to ensure optimum performance. 

The XA1 Ultra is also equipped with Xperia Actions—it learns your usage patterns to simplify tasks by suggesting customizable settings and personalized recommendations. For example, your XA1 Ultra can learn your bedtime routine to automatically adjust the screen brightness and call volume.  

Colors That Stand Out 

You can get the Xperia XA1 Ultra in the following contemporary colorways: Rainbow White, Black, Pink, and Gold. Also available are a range of accessories for a perfect match.

The Sony Xperia XA1 Ultra is now available at Sony Centres, Sony Mobile Stores, and authorized dealers for P21,990.
