Back in February, Sony announced two new budget phones - the XA1 and XA1 Ultra. Comparable to the Moto G and G Plus respectively, Sony calls these devices "super mid-range." Now the XA1 has showed up for pre-order on Amazon and Best Buy for $299, in Black, Gold, Pink, and White.
The XA1 is powered by a MediaTek Helio P20 processor, with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. There's a microSD card slot too, if you need more space. The phone has a 5" display with a resolution of 720p - a bit disappointing to see at this price. However, the XA1 does have a 23MP back camera with f2.0 aperture and an 8MP front camera.
The primary competitor at this price point is probably the Moto G5 Plus, which bests the XA1 in several areas. That phone has a higher-resolution screen, 1GB more RAM, and twice the internal storage. However, the cameras on the XA1 are better, and it has a sleeker design (in my own opinion, at least).
You can pre-order the XA1 from Amazon and Best Buy from the links below.
