    Price it the same as the XA and they’ll have another winner on their hands

  • Wow, love that minimalistic and futuristic design in white!

  • Bloobat

    Stupid name but great camera and design. Price will be key here though!

  • SM

    Battery? Same 2300MHz or some improvement there?

  • Moisés

    2300…. Ultra has 2700

  • Moisés

    Sony had Z , then z1

  • jxPerience

    So i need to wait until XA5 then Sony will finally move to a new chapter of Xperia Brand. I don’t really like the X series to be honest. I think i will skip sony until new chapter is going to introduced.

    There was a old leak that said colors would be blue, purple, red and white..
    I will never believe another leak again..

  • nick sweden

    Should be be that design on flagship. With ip70. Don’t understand sometimes how Sony. Are thinking :-S

  • KzX

    GsmArena said 300USD for XA1 and 700USD for XZs

  • Snorky112

    Ip 70 Hahahahaha are you serious

  • Snorky112

    Galaxy A3 has same an is one of the best ever

  • penubag

    agree, looks like a turret from the game Portal

  • Night Guy

    Same battery capacity. LOL

  • nick sweden

    Ofcourse ;-) I’m always serious;-) when it comes to ip certification ;-)

  • Ryuzaki Raiga

    mediatek = no update

  • Bashar Shehab

    You know there is nothing called IP70, right?
    Plus, IP system doesn’t work like that, bigger number doesn’t mean better thing.

    Xperia XZ users, what is your feelings when you knew that low-end device has your flagship camera sensor ?

    This shows why Sony is a liar and stupid with that “Growth Hormone Mega pixels sensor” .

  • Nafnaf84

    First of all, I don’t have a XZ but a X Compact…
    Second of all, the XA is more of a mid-range device, not a low-end device (but I agree, from the Xperia presented so far for 2017 it is the low-end)…
    This XA1 doesn’t have the same camera as the XZ (the number of pixels is not the only important thing)… it seems the same as the X and X Performance (with object tracking) from 1 year ago so it make sense… particularly with the evolutions since then…
    The 3 captors, which are on the XZ, X Compact, XZs and XZ Premium aren’t on this XA1 and I can say that they do a good job, photos are great and looks more natural… :)

  • Nafnaf84

    Galaxy A3 has a 4,7″ HD, not a 5″ HD and they don’t have the same configuration (processor…)
    Xperia M2 has a 2 300 mAh battery with 4,8″ qHD screen > good battery life (I have it)
    Xperia XA has the same battery with 5″ HD screen > apparently the battery life is very bad (from the tests + user’s opinion)
    And they are putting the same battery again… no improvement…
    About the fact that the processor may consume less battery let’s wait and see because that’s what people told me about the XA and I’ve read people who had the M2 complain about the battery life of the XA (worse than the M2 after 2 years of use)… :/
    In the end I don’t regret going for the X Compact instead which have a great battery (life)

  • Moisés

    I like XZ style, but 2016 was better..

  • Moisés

    A5 2017 has s6 cam

  • Moisés

    XA is going to get nougat

  • kurakuradisco

    quite beautiful for mid-range… no super mid-range (the camera seems promising if it just like X)

  • uvuvwevwevwe onyetenyevwe ugwe

    Thats the final update lol not anything after N

  • twm

    Looks like a step in the right direction, but a 5” 720p screen is not competitive. I would easily recommend Huawei P9 Lite with a cheaper price instead.

  • YASIN NEWAJ SHAIKAT

    Helio P20 is 25% more battery efficient. my xa goes till 8 pm once charged in the morning. So xa1 will go till bed time.

    Why still the same rather identical names of new models its 2017m give them new names, like XB, XP… ? But all in all SONY mobile tech is awesome winning the hearts.

  • TombStone

    Man, this phone is so gorgeous!! It is making me consider swapping my Z5 for it just based on design alone. haha
