Sony Xperia XA1 Plus leaks out, could offer long battery life
Sony is seemingly getting ready to launch a new mid-range Android smartphone that's going to sit between the 5-inch Xperia XA1 and the 6-inch Xperia XA1 Ultra (both released earlier this year). According to Russian website MobilTelefon, this new handset is called Xperia XA1 Plus, and renders of it can be seen below.

Reportedly, the Sony Xperia XA1 Plus sports a 5.5-inch display with 1080 x 1920 pixels, and should be powered by the same processor that's found inside its slightly older brothers - a pretty capable octa-core MediaTek Helio P20 (aka MT6757). Other features will include a fingerprint scanner on the rear (embedded in the power button), a USB Type-C port, 4 GB of RAM, 32 GB of storage space, and a 3430 mAh battery. Interestingly, this battery would be one of the largest we've seen on a Sony smartphone. For comparison, the Xperia XA1 Ultra packs a 2700 mAh cell, while the high-end Xperia XZ Premium, which sports a 5.5-inch 4K screen, has a 3230 mAh cell inside.

On the front, the XA1 Plus seemingly has an 8 MP camera, while its rear camera is a 23 MP one. Android 7 Nougat should be on board at launch, with Android 8 Oreo probably arriving later via an update.

For now, it's not clear how much the Xperia XA1 Plus will cost, and neither if it's going to be available in North America. In any case, the handset might be officially announced tomorrow, August 31, during Sony's IFA 2017 event, possibly alongside an Xperia XZ1 and an XZ1 Compact.
