Vodafone lands Sony Xperia XA1 Ultra

Posted: 2 June 2017 9:48 am


Sony's latest budget smartphone is now available for Vodafone customers.

While we're keenly awaiting news of a local launch for Sony's exceptional Sony Xperia XZ Premium, it wasn't the only phone that Sony showed off at Mobile World Congress. It also used the huge mobile show to debut the Sony Xperia XA1 Ultra, a phone with far more modest features and a price tag to match.

Sony launched the Xperia XA1 in Australia back in May with an outright price of $399, available through the online Sony store and JB Hi-Fi, and today it has announced that the larger member of the XA1 family will be available on contract through Vodafone.

At that kind of asking price handset repayments were always going to be modest, and indeed they are, with the Xperia XA1 Ultra commanding a $5 handset repayment premium on the $40 Red plan (for a minumum 24 month cost of $1080), and included free at any other plan tier.

The XA1 Ultra itself is a mid-range device sporting a MediaTek helio P20 octa-core processor, 3GB of RAM and a 1080p 6 inch display, running Android 7.0. There's a lot of competition for phones at the budget to low mid-range at the moment, with the XA1 selling itself on the inclusion of a 23MP f/2.0 camera at the rear as its key differentiator.
