Sony started taking orders for its Xperia X line of smartphones just a few weeks ago, but the company is already expanding the lineup with a new model featuring.

The Sony Xperia XA Ultra has a 6 inch, 1920 x 1080 pixel display, a 21.5MP rear camera with hybrid auto-focus, and a 16MP front-facing camera for selfies or video chat. Both cameras feature optical image stabilization, flash bulbs, and support for low-light photography.

Other features include a MediaTek MT6755 octa-core processor, 3GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, and a micro SD card slot for up to 200GB of removable storage.

The phone has a 2,700 mAh battery and runs Android 6.0 software. Sony will offer single SIM and dual SIM versions of the Xperia XA Ultra, and the smartphone supports 4G LTE, WiFi, Bluetooth, aGPS, and NFC.

The stand-out feature is probably the 16MP front-facing camera which has a Sony Exmor RS image sensor, auto-focus, an 88-degree wide angle lens, and support for HDR mode, among other things.

Sony’x Xperia XA Ultra joins three other phones in the X series, including the Xperia X Performance, Xpiera X, and Xperia XA.

Incidentally, if you’re wondering where this year’s Xperia Z or Xperia C smartphones are, there’s a rumor going around that all of the company’s phones for the next few years will be part of the Xperia X lineup.
