Virgin Mobile is taking pre-orders for the Xperia XA

Alex Kidman 24 June 2016


If you’re keen on Sony’s entry level Xperia XA, Virgin Mobile has announced what you’ll pay for a contract.

You won’t actually get your hands on the Xperia XA until 4 July 2016, but if the prospect of Sony’s take on Android within a slimmed down body appeals to you and you don’t want to face the likely higher contract prices that the Xperia X and Xperia X Performance will command when they become available directly.

Virgin Mobile is also claiming an exclusive on the Rose Gold coloured Xperia XA, so if you’re keen on that colour, they’d be your contract option if you didn’t want to purchase outright. In carrier terms, Telstra is going to offer the Xperia X Performance while Vodafone will range both the Xperia X and Xperia XA.

Virgin Mobile’s pricing for the Xperia XA will start at $38 per month including an $8 handset repayment over 24 months; for every other Virgin Mobile pricing tier there will be no handset repayment to worry about. Here’s how the pricing at launch compares.
