I guess its great they are improving on the originals 6 months at a time. Maybe the are actually listen to consumers in what they want. XA with to XA1 gets Type-C quick charge. XA1 Plus bumps up to 5.5 1080p. But what are they going to do to the XZ Premium? Will it get a XZ1 Premium, or will they cycle next two years like from the Z5 Premium. Would make more sense so, the Premium users would only buy after the full 2 years of use. If they break it between then you can always pick up a mid-ranger and not feel to guilty.

Anonymous, 06 Sep 2017Xperia xa1 plus was released on ifa 2017 berlin,so its not a foul informationThis must be a entry to mid range smartphone, do you think it is a flapship?
Sony is rising with so many technology supports for the smartphone and it can found on their flapships. The competitors still stay continues focus on the trolling, quite shame.

This is much more interesting than the xz1. Finally a fingerprint reader on midrange. Wish they had it on the ultra.

But they do interested on VR technology, so maybe we can only see Sony for 2 - 3 years more on smartphones market.

9fuad6, 31 Aug 2017Looks like Sony is gonna rule the year of 2018. This is a total package you could ever imagine... morei am a big sony fans n hpe wat u say is true but it is not. why it still using mtk for mid range. i know they want to maximise profit but mtk is really not good. it even better if they use snapdragon 6xx or even 4xx.. mtk has many issue heating, lagging when low battery, battery draining and the most worrisome by all reliability...
Well, at least it has FM radio. Only cheap phones get FM radio, which means the manufacturers think only poor people listen to FM radio.
It's too big and bulky, and honestly it should have launched with Android Oreo preinstalled just like its more expensive brother the Xperia XZ1.
If you want a phone with similar specs and price point, I would wait for the 2018 successor to the Galaxy A7 (2017). Should be released by Jan/Feb 2018.
