Sony Xperia XA1 and Xperia XA1 Ultra now available in Europe

The Xperia XA1 and XA1 Ultra are two of the smartphones that Sony unveiled back in February at Mobile World Congress. The Japanese company promised to bring the devices to market in the Q2, but an exact release date hasn't been given at that time.

Although previous rumors claimed the Xperia XA1 might arrive in some European countries sometime in April, it appears that it took Sony an extra two weeks to make both phones available on the market.

Sony fans can get the mid-range Xperia XA1 for around €280 outright, whereas the larger Xperia XA1 Ultra costs €100 more. Unfortunately, depending on your location, you might not find both smartphones to be available. Also, in some countries like France and Italy, the Xperia XA1 is slightly more expensive.

The good news is Sony has already started to expand the availability of these mid-range smartphones, so by the end of the month, they could hit the shelves in just about every European market.

If you're anxious to buy either of the two handsets, then you might want to check your local MediaMarkt stores. Amazon is selling the Xperia XA1 and XA1 Ultra as well, but the retailer is shipping them starting mid-May.
