The Xperia XZ Premium is the weapon of choice for power users who want the best of the best from an Android flagship, but that’s not the only phone Sony unveiled at the MWC 2017 trade show. The company has announced three new models that not only impress in the camera department but will also give you a good first impression of the phones from a hardware perspective. The names of the phones are Xperia XZs, Xperia XA1, and Xperia XA1 Ultra.

Xperia XZs is the better performing smartphone out of all of them and for a mid-ranger, it features a Snapdragon 820, 4GB of RAM and a 5.2-inch Full HD display. The 19MP rear shooter can capture footage at 960 frames per second and supports 4K video recording as well. The front 13MP camera sensor sports a 22m wide angle lens that helps to capture more content, such as more people in a selfie group.

What About the Xperia XA1 and Xperia XA1 Ultra?

The other two phones that Sony announced are the Xperia XA1 and XA1 Ultra. The first one has a 23MP rear-camera with 24mm wide-angle lens and F/2.0 aperture, while the front camera reaches 8MP. The display size of the phone is 5 inches and features an HD resolution, while the phone is powered by a MediaTek Helio P20 SoC, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal memory and a 2,300mAh battery with fast charging support.

Xperia XA1 Ultra is running XA1, except for the 4GB of RAM and up to 64GB of internal memory. The rear camera is the same as the one present in the XA1, but the front camera has been bumped up to 16MP. The display size is much bigger at 6 inches with Full HD resolution, and the battery capacity has also been increased to 2,700mAh. Both devices will also be running Android Nougat, which is something very refreshing to hear.
