Sony’s latest smartphone launched this week is the Sony Xperia XA1 Ultra. The specifications and features of this new phone can only be described as a mixed bag. This is probably reflected in the price of this phone at Rs 29, 990; neither too high nor low either.

The dimensions of the Sony Experia XA1 Ultra read 165 x 79 x 8.1 mm and the phone weighs a good 188gms. Black, gold and white are the colors in which the phone is being made available.
