Sony Xperia XA1 Australian pricing and availability revealed

Offering a terrific camera, decent specs and an attractive design, Sony has announced that its affordable Xperia XA1 handset is now available to purchase in Australia. 

Available now from JB Hi-Fi and both in-store and online through Sony, the Xperia XA1 has been priced at a very reasonable $399. You can pick it up in Black from JB Hi-Fi or Black and White from Sony. 

Sporting an impressive 23-megapixel camera with a large 1/2.3” Exmor RS for mobile sensor on its rear and a 8-megapixel camera with 23mm wide-angle lens (perfect for group selfies) on the front, the Xperia XA1 promises to deliver top-tier photographic experience. 

it's got a fetching 5-inch edge-to-edge 720p display and though its 2,300mAh battery is relatively modest in size, its power-efficient MediaTek helio P20 octa-core processors and Stamina Mode should keep the Xperia XA1 up and running for the whole day.
