The XA1 is a 5-inch phone with a curved HD screen with Gorilla Glass protection, 3GB RAM and 32GB of storage.It is powered by Mediatek’s Helio P20 octa-core processor clocked at 2.3GHz. Sony has been generous with the cameras. There is a f/2.0 23MP sensor with Exmor RS™ on the rear and an 8MP Exmor R camera with a 23mm wide angle lens in front for selfies.

Android 7.0 Nougat comes bundled with the Xperia XA1 and it is fueled by a 2300mAh battery with Mediatek’s Pump Express+ 2.0 fast charge. There is also NFC on-board and a USB Type-C port at the bottom.

What you’d surely like about the Xperia XA1 is its nearly bezel-less sides. That design is however marred by the huge top and bottom bezels.
