Sony first announced its new Xperia X line of smartphones at Mobile World Congress earlier this year.

Now the Japanese technology company has now added another model to the line in the shape of the Xperia XA Ultra.

The Xperia XA Ultra is a phone that will certainly excite big screen lovers as the  display measures 6 inches with  1080p resolution and overall  sleek design. 

That said, the XA Ultra’s headline feature is its front camera. It comes with a 16MP Exmor R sensor, optical image stabilization and a front flash, making it a significant upgrade to the original XA’s front camera.

The wide 88 degree viewing angle should allow for group self-portraits without selfie-sticks or similar contraptions.

Lets take a look at some of the key features in the Xperia XA Ultra
