Barcelona, Mobile World Congress, 27th February 2016 – Sony Mobile Communications (“Sony Mobile”) today unveiled two stunning super mid-range models in its refreshed “X” series, Xperia XA1, and its 6” screen big brother Xperia XA1 Ultra. Building on the success of last year’s XA models, the XA1 and XA1 Ultra feature a beautiful borderless design to make the most of the edge-to-edge screen, cameras that are worthy of a high-end premium status and octa-core processors.

Take pictures that exceed your expectations

Camera expertise are taken from Sony’s digital camera division to deliver a leading rear camera for both XA1 and XA1 Ultra that offers 23MP high resolution with a large 1/2.3” Exmor™RS for mobile sensor, bright F2.0 lens and superior lowlight capability. You’re guaranteed a superfast journey from launch to capture in 0.6s and incredibly fast and accurate Hybrid Autofocus, so even the most spontaneous moments are always in focus.

Front cameras are the backbone of the selfie world and the 8MP, 23mm wide-angle lens on Xperia XA1 will let you capture all the action even in a group selfie without missing anyone out. The XA1 Ultra features a 16MP front camera with Optical Image Stabilizer to eliminate the effects of handshake and improve low-light selfies, plus a smart selfie flash to naturally illuminate your face. Both models allow you to capture the perfect selfie easily with just a wave via the ‘Hand Shutter’ camera feature.

Edge-to-edge Beauty

The beautiful borderless design introduced in 2016 has been refined to create the illusion of a seamlessly never-ending surface whose curvature aids the perfect fit in your hand. The edge-to-edge HD (720p) 5” screen on XA1 and Full HD (1080p) 6” screen on XA1 Ultra are supported by display technologies to deliver a crisp, sharp viewing experience.

Sony craftsmanship is clear to see with the diamond cut-like finish on top and bottom, along with the choice of materials such as the aluminium sides which create a rich feel in the hand.

With their power-efficient MediaTek Helio P20 octa-core processors you get a quick and smooth experience, whether you browse the web, watch a video or play your favourite game.

Both XA1 and XA1 Ultra are designed to ensure a longer lasting performance over the smartphone’s lifetime. Qnovo Adaptive Charging monitors the battery’s health and adjusts charging current accordingly to avoid damage and maximise lifespan whilst Stamina Mode keeps your battery going for longer when you really need it the most by disabling some of the functions and extending the lifetime.
Sony’s Smart Cleaner cleverly manages the performance and memory of your device by clearing the cache and unused apps automatically in order to attain the best speed and performance without degradation over time. Additionally both models support quick charging to give you hours of power in just a few minutes charging.

Making life easier

Xperia Actions is a new addition to the latest Xperia range including XA1 and XA1 Ultra that aims to learn your usage patterns to simplify your daily life by suggesting customisable settings and personalised recommendations. For example, when you go to bed your Xperia can learn your bedtime routine and automatically adjust the screen brightness and call volume.

Availability

Xperia XA1 and Xperia XA1 Ultra will roll out from Spring 2017[i] with Android N at launch and come in a choice of contemporary finishes[i]; White, Black, Pink and Gold. Both models have matching Style Cover Stands available in White and Black along with a range of complementary accessories.

XPERIA XA1 SERIES

BERLIN, IFA, 31st August 2017 – Sony Mobile Communications (“Sony Mobile”) today unveiled the latest addition to its super mid-range family, Xperia XA1 Plus. Offering best in class entertainment in the palm of your hand, it features a 23MP camera, 5.5” Full HD display and immersive audio performance with Sony technologies. Bringing a vibrant choice of three colours to express your individual style, Xperia XA1 Plus features a rounded, sleek design with narrow borders and intuitive fingerprint sensor on the power button. All this is powered with all day battery thanks to its large capacity and Stamina Mode and with power efficient performance to keep everything running smoothly and quickly with its octa-core processor.

Xperia XA1 Plus also features an 8MP 23mm wide-angle lens front camera to give you high quality images that capture all the action, even in a group selfie.

Where the Xperia XA1 Plus also shines is with its beautiful 5.5” Full HD display. It provides bright, vivid colours and detailed images, perfect for watching your favourite movies. Making it the perfect entertainment all-rounder, it offers fantastic audio quality to match what’s on the screen. With ClearAudio+ Sony audio technology and Smart Amplifier you get sound that is always loud and clear. You can even customise your sound experience and adjust settings to suit your own personalise listening tastes.

Xperia XA1 Plus is designed to make a statement and comes in three stunning colours, Gold, Blue and Black so you can stand out from the crowd. Designed to know who you are, an intuitive finger-print sensor is included on the power button to give you personalised security whilst also contributing to a seamless feel in the hand that fits like a glove thanks to its sleek, rounded form and narrow borders. In keeping with Xperia style, Sony craftsmanship is also clear to see with the diamond cut-like finish on the top and bottom, along with the choice of materials such as the aluminium sides and matt finish which create a premium look.

Entertainment lovers and multi-taskers alike will love the all-day battery and power efficient performance. Stamina Mode extends the battery lifetime just when you really need it, whilst Qnovo Adaptive Charging technology and Battery Care work together to maintain the long-term health of the battery by monitoring its health and adjusting the charging current accordingly to avoid damage and maximise its lifespan. Quick charging is also supported to give you that boost of hours of power in just minutes of charging. Making sure the performance is smooth and quick, its power-efficient MediaTek Helio P20 octa-core processor will be providing a seamless experience whether you browse the web, watch a video or play your favourite game. Adding to the swift performance is Sony’s Smart Cleaner which automatically deactivates unused app and clears the cache to give you the fastest, most optimised performance.

Xperia XA1 Plus will roll out from Autumn 2017. Style Cover Stands will also be available in White and Black along with a range of complementary accessories including the new SBH24 Stereo Bluetooth® Headset, which allows you to enjoy music and talk wirelessly.

Indeed, it's a pity that the XA1 and XA1 Ultra doesn't feature a fingerprint sensor.

If they want to implement a fingerprint sensor to the XA1 series, they would possibly place it at the side of the phone.
However, that would mean sacrificing the borderless design as there would definitely be side bezels because of the side fingerprint sensor.

Back also can put sensor mah if wanna avoid side bezel. Doesn't bother me too much as I don't use fingerprint for my phones.

I'm more disappointed at the 2300 mah battery.
