Design and Display

Sony describes the design of the Sony Xperia XA1 Plus as ‘premium.’ But you may find it a bit hard agreeing with that when you consider plastic features in the construction. The sides feature aluminium to enhance durability. While the side bezels are thin, those at the top and base are rather thick.

Sony Xperia XA1 Plus rocks a 5.5-inch IPS display, which straddles the middle ground between the Xperia XA1 and Xperia XA1 Ultra. Screen resolution is 1,920 x 1,080 pixels. There is Corning Gorilla Glass 4 protection.


Sony’s marketing strategy for the Xperia XA1 Plus also revolves around its 23MP primary camera. This looks ready to serve up very high quality images, if resolution is anything to go by. The Exmor RS sensor comes with features such as Hybrid Autofocus and SteadyShot EIS. Sony Xperia XA1 Plus shoots Full HD videos.

The 8MP front facing shooter also looks ready to provide quality selfies. It has similar f/2.0 aperture. You also get autofocus and Full HD video recording capability.
