The Sony Xperia XA3 may not be what we thought it wouldbe – new product images have surfaced that show a 21:9 screen on the front, the same aspect ratio as the XZ4 flagship.
Leakster @rquandt has been dropping hints that the CAD-based renders didn’t show the front correctly. And now he just dropped a cache of product images. The back looks the same with the horizontal dual camera, but the front is different indeed.
The screen should have a 1,080 x 2,560px resolution to cover the extra height. The diagonal is unknown as it’s not quite clear if this is the Xperia XA3, XA3 Ultra or, say, the in-between Plus version. Previous leaks pegged the XA3 screen at 5.9” and the Ultra at 6.5”.
The position of the side-mounted fingerprint reader is curious too – it might be hard to reach on a 6.5” 21:9 device. We're not sure what to think of the top bezel, either (it's bigger than the bottom bezel).
Anyway, the Xperia XA3 phones will use the Snapdragon 660 chipset and may launch with the older Android 8.0 Oreo. The H4493 packed 6GB of RAM when it was benchmarked and it should offer 64GB storage. The dual camera on the back will use a 23MP main sensor.
You mean those insignificant and useless features that I'm desperately trying to uninstall from my S8+ because they kill the battery and the processor? I'd rather have stock vanilla Android and choose what apps to install myself, instead of having ...
if sony put ois (+ their eis if could) in their next phone, i might switch my phone to this.
it's a remote control
