Design and display

High definition screen

The Sony Xperia XA1 is fronted by a 5-inch HD display, stretching right up to the rounded edges of the handset.

 

It’s bright and clear showing off every detail of your photos and videos, and makes for the perfect handheld movie theatre when using the likes of Netflix or Amazon Prime. 

Premium design

The XA1’s compact design makes it simple to hold and use in just one hand, and it’ll fit nicely in your pocket. 

Camera

Seriously impressive sensor

A 23MP camera is on board to make sure can always get the best photos and videos. And with a large f/2.0 aperture, letting in loads of light, getting great shots at night is a breeze too. 

Perfect selfies

The 23mm wide-angle front-facing lens lets you get the whole gang in the frame. And at 8MP, all your photos will look pin sharp. 

Under the hood

Smooth user experience

The XA1 has an octa-core processor on the inside, which will make sure you won’t be slowed down while using big mobile games or streaming films online. It’s backed up by 3GB RAM, and there’s 32GB of internal storage as standard. 

Smart battery

A 2,300mAh battery will keep you powered up all day long, but if you do find yourself nearing the red, you can turn on Sony’s STAMINA Mode. It limits some of the more power-hungry parts of the XA1, to keep you going for longer.
