Like if it wasn’t enough already, Sony add another offer on the selfie market, this time with a model that, kindly reminded us of the beloved Z Ultra, but unlike its older sibling, this model is not a flagship phone, but a mid-ranger.

Despite the larger screen and beautiful front, the device is just a bigger version of the regular Xperia XA, with some improvements mostly on the front side.

But let’s take a look at the full specs list:

SIM capability
Single SIM, Dual SIM, Nano SIM

As you can see, the focus is on the front facing camera, which is now one of the two phones in the market which FF cameras offer OIS, and is also the first Sony phone to actually carry one.

The huge 6″ screen is another improvement over the regular XA as now this one is FHD.

The battery has seeing some love, now with Quick Charger UCH12 you can get 5.5 hours of battery life in just 10 minutes.
