Sony India has announced the launch of its mid-range model in the refreshed X series, the Xperia XA1. The Xperia XA1, along with the Xperia XA1 Ultra, were first unveiled at the Mobile World Congress 2017 earlier this year.

The Xperia XA1 features a borderless design to make the most of the edge-to-edge 720p display with a diamond cut-like finish on top and bottom. Of course, the highlight of the smartphone is its high-end camera setup. The XA1 packs in a 23MP rear camera with a large 1/2.3” Exmor RS for mobile sensor, bright F2.0 lens, and superior lowlight capability. There’s also an 8MP front camera with a 23mm wide-angle lens.

Xperia XA1 sports Type-C USB port and comes bundled with a quick charger UCH12 within the box, which gives you hours of battery life with just a few minutes of charging.
