The Sony Xperia XA’s most stunning feature is its near bezel-less display. The integrated edge-to-edge display stretches the full width of the phone to give it a very narrow profile. The omnibalance design language gives it a pleasing look, while the curve glass and rounded frame make it easy to hold.
For mobile photographers, the Xperia XA is equipped with a 13MP main camera with a 1/3″ sensor size, hybrid autofocus, and a fast quick launch. The 8MP front camera has a wide angle lens, autofocus and 1/4″ sized sensor for better low light performance.
