Last month, Sony introduced the Xperia XA Ultra in the United States carrying a $369.99 price tag. However, it seems the handset didn’t grab the attention of the customers in the market resulting in a significant price drop for the handset.
Recently, the Sony Xperia XA Ultra dropped to $298.99 on Amazon in the US. Both black and white versions are available along with a 64GB memory card.
The handset comes with a decent set of specifications featuring a 6.0-inch display sporting a resolution of 1920 by 1080 pixels and comes with an octa-core Mediatek MT6755 Helio P10 paired with 3GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage coupled with a microSD card slot.
The handset also features a 21.5MP main camera for photos and videos as well as an impressive 16MP front-facing camera for selfies, a 2,700 mAh battery to make sure you don’t run out of juice and ships with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow pre-installed out of the box.
One of the main reason could be the big size of the smartphone as every customer doesn’t really prefer to carry a handset this big. It may get popular in some other markets, but it seems US may not be the right market for Sony. Anyway, let us know if you’re interested in picking up the Xperia XA Ultra from Amazon in the US.
