Mobile World Congress 2018
It's bye bye bezels on Sony's new mid-range XA1 and XA UltraThe screens on Sony's new mid-range Android handsets stretch right to the edge of the phone. There are sacrifices to be made, though.
Sony has a pair of new midrange Android phones to tempt those of you whose wallets do the new flagship XF premium. They're called Xperia XA1 and the XA Ultra. The XA1 is the smaller of the two with a 5.2-inch 720p display while the Ultra balloons out with a 6-inch full HD The screen. Bezels on both phones have been cut down to tiny slivers, allowing the screens to stretch across the whole front of the phone. Aside from the size, the main specs of the two phones are pretty much the same. Both have 23 megapixel cameras on the back. They both run Android. Both have 32 gigabytes of storage that can be expanded with microSD cards. They both charge with USBC and they both have media tech processors. Neither phone has any kind of waterproofing as you'll find in the [INAUDIBLE] nor do they have fingerprint scanners. Which will be disappointing to those of you who want to make easy access Android paper just as both the XA One and the XA Ultra will come in black, white, gold, and rose gold colors. And will be available later this year although Sony hasn't given any specific timing indeed price details. [BLANK_AUDIO]
