Sony‘s moves in the mobile space continue to be somewhat confusing, as the company’s dedicated division continues to underperform, but that is not stopping the Japanese firm cranking out new and increasingly weird smartphones.
One may wonder who this device is for, and Sony’s answer seems to be that the latest entry in the Xperia X family is designed to be a “stylish selfie-cam masterpiece”.
To benefit from gorgeous selfies, however, you will have to deal with a gigantic 6″ screen, which is crammed into Sony’s distinctive glass-and-metal chassis — not exactly the bezel-less design one would want to deal with in such a case.
At 1080p resolution, however, the display should look fine, although we are not sure the 2700mAh battery will be enough to stand by the company’s “two days battery” claim.
The back camera is Sony’s signature Exmor RS’ 21.5MP shooter, with features like quick launch and hybrid autofocus to help it out.
The Xperia XA Ultra will be available in White, Graphite Black and Lime Gold starting this July, with prices yet to be finalized.
