The Sony Xperia XA3 may not be what we thought it wouldbe new product images have surfaced that show a 21:9 screen on the front, the same aspect ratio as the XZ4 flagship.
Leakster @rquandt has been dropping hints that the CAD-based renders didnt show the front correctly. And now he just dropped a cache of product images. The back looks the same with the horizontal dual camera, but the front is different indeed.
Sony Xperia XA3 with a 21:9 screen
The screen should have a 1,080 x 2,560px resolution to cover the extra height. The diagonal is unknown as its not quite clear if this is the Xperia XA3, XA3 Ultra or, say, the in-between Plus version. Previous leaks pegged the XA3 screen at 5.9 and the Ultra at 6.5.
The position of the side-mounted fingerprint reader is curious too it might be hard to reach on a 6.5 21:9 device. We’re not sure what to think of the top bezel, either (it’s bigger than the bottom bezel).
Xperia XA3 color options
Anyway, the Xperia XA3 phones will use the Snapdragon 660 chipset and may launch with the older Android 8.0 Oreo. The H4493 packed 6GB of RAM when it was benchmarked and it should offer 64GB storage. The dual camera on the back will use a 23MP main sensor.
