Sony Mobile unveiled Xperia XA Ultra today very unexpectedly. A few days back news came that Sony might continue to move forward with Xperia “X” series for next 1-2 years and then suddenly Xperia XA Ultra came with a selfie front cam ditching the Sony Xperia “C” Ultra series legacy.

For the first time a Xperia smartphone features Optical Image Stabilisation in the camera and that too in the front camera. Xperia XA Ultra features 1/2.6″ 16 MP OIS low-light selfie camera ( Sony Exmor R for mobile sensor with Front flash, Wide angle lens-88 degree) with a 1/2.4″ 21.5 MP Hybrid AutoFocus camera (Exmor RS for mobile sensor and Quick launch). Somehow Sony missed OIS in the rear camera where it is needed the most!!!
