With a display of 5 inch and 71.8% screen-to-body ratio, the Sony Xperia XA has a decent design that is not too big and not too small.

Its dimensions are 143.6 x 66.8 x 7.9mm and it weighs just 137.4g. The phone will be available in four colors namely Graphite Black, White, Lime Gold and Rose Gold.
Let us take a look from different angles,
The Sony Xperia XA has a 5 inch IPS LCD display with a screen resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels and pixel density of 294 ppi. The display has a color depth of 16M colors and supports multi touch up to four fingers. Xperia XA’s display stretches the full width of the phone so there’s barely a frame visible. The phone also has nice viewing angles and color saturation. Even at a 720 p display it gives a high end feel because of the amazing details.
The Sony Xperia XA is equipped with a 13 MP Rear camera with Exmor RS for mobile sensor, 1/3” sensor size and Hybrid Auto-Focus. The Phone comes with a quick launch camera button so that you never miss out on anything. The camera features a HDR photo mode and 5X Image Zoom.
The front has a 8 MP shooter with Sony Exmor R for mobile sensor, 88 degree wide angle lens and Auto-focus. The front camera features a HDR mode and low light sensors.
Price & Availability
The Sony Xperia XA is listed on the company’s website but is not yet available for pre-order (at the time of writing this). The phone is priced at Rs. 20,990 and it will soon be available for pre order. The phone will come in four colors namely Graphite Black, White, Lime Gold and Rose Gold.
The Sony Xperia XA has all the good looks, the phone is very thin and light, thus it can be easily handled. Despite a 720p resolution the display is good and 2.5D glass adds to its beauty. The phone is equipped with a nice hardware for a mid ranged phone and it comes with the latest Marshmallow OS. Although you can wait for some price cuts, but still it is a phone you should take into consideration while buying a new one.
