The Sony Xperia XA1 and XA1 Ultra are Sony's new 'super mid-range' phones

Sony's XZ Premium and the XZs are not the only new kids on the block for its 2017 smartphone lineup. The company has also got the 'super mid-range' XA1 and XA1 Ultra devices, for those searching for a good-looking phone on a budget.

Both XA1 models are cemented firmly in their mid-range category by the octa-core MediaTek Helio P20 processor. There's 3GB RAM on board and 32GB storage, with microSD card expandability. For the Ultra, the same Helio P20 processor is coupled with 4GB RAM and 32/64GB storage, plus microSD card. The XA1 has a 5-inch 720p screen, so it won't be winning any pixels per inch awards.

Sony announces the Xperia XZ Premium with Snapdragon 835 and 960fps video capture, plus Xperia XZs

I don't know how Sony hasn't run out of alphabet letters and rectangular designs by now. Year after year, or more like half year after half year, the company churns another phone that distinctly looks like almost every Sony phone we've seen to date (which might be a good or a bad thing, depending on how much you like the design language) and that has another letter or noun added in the name. I'm honestly confused, but I understand that it has its appeal for a small subset of people, so I'll put my judgment aside and carry on telling you about these new Sony phones announced at MWC today.

[Deal Alert] Sony Xperia X Compact drops to just $350 ($150 off) at Amazon and Best Buy

Back around the time of the Galaxy Nexus, I recall a counter-culture developing, calling for an end to the insanity of oversized phones with screens as big as 4.7 inches. They wanted a smaller alternative, built for human hands and human pockets. While the itty bitty smartphone committee might have lost the good fight in a general sense, they now have a few more options, including the Xperia X Compact. Its screen is only 4.6 inches. Hey, it's the principle that counts.
