The Sony Xperia XA3 Ultra is expected to go official at CES 2019. And with less than two weeks to go until the event, a new leak has revealed a number of European launch details.
According to DroidShout, the upcoming iteration of Sony’s oversized mid-ranger will cost €519 in most European markets. This translates into $595 and represents a huge hike over the current-generation Xperia XA2 Ultra which cost $514 (€449) at launch.
If Sony plays its cards correctly, the price hike will be justified by a bump in specs. More specifically, considering the current-gen model ships with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 630 on the inside, the slightly more powerful Snapdragon 660 is likely. However, with the Snapdragon 670 also available, this chip remains a candidate too. Either way, this should be accompanied by 6GB of RAM and Android 9 Pie straight out of the box.
Elsewhere, it’s claimed that the smartphone will stick to a larger 18:9 6.5-inch display that'll be accompanied by an aluminum construction which boasts a significantly different rear design.
The Xperia XA3 Ultra is set to be sold in Black, Gold, and Silver. Sales are expected to commence in February alongside the release of the Xperia XA3 and Xperia L3, which will also be available in Europe.
