Sony’s upcoming Xperia XA3, Xperia XA3 Ultra, and Xperia L3 smartphones were recently certified by the Bluetooth SIG. Ahead of their expected unveiling at the Mobile World Congress 2019 in Barcelona, the Xperia XA3 has now bagged 3C certification in China.
Sony Xperia XA3 Expected to be Launched Alongside Xperia XA3 Plus and Xperia L3 at MWC 2019
Chinese certification agency 3C has certified the I4293 variant of the upcoming Sony Xperia XA3. While the 3C certification does not confirm the smartphone’s key specifications, it does reveal that the Xperia XA3 will be bundled with a 5V 1500mA charger in the box in China.
The Sony Xperia XA3 is tipped to come with a 5.9-inch IPS LCD display featuring 1080 x 2160 Full HD+ resolution and an 18:9 aspect ratio. Unlike recent mid-range smartphones from most other Android OEMs, the upcoming Xperia XA3 will have relatively thick bezels on all sides. In terms of performance, however, the smartphone will not be a disappointment. It is expected to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 AIE chipset, which is still among the most popular mid-range mobile processors out there. The 14nm octa-core processor is expected to be coupled with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. Just like its predecessor, the Xperia XA3 will probably include a microSD card slot as well for further storage expansion. Connectivity features will include Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac dual-band, Bluetooth 5.0 Low Energy, GPS with A-GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, 4G VoLTE, and a USB Type-C port. In terms of software, the smartphone will be running on the Android 9.0 Pie operating system out of the box. The Xperia XA3 is expected to be launched at Sony’s Mobile World Congress 2019 press conference in Barcelona on February 25. Along with the Xperia XA3, we also expect to see the Xperia XA3 Ultra and Xperia L3 smartphones to be launched at the event next month. All three smartphones will likely go on sale in select markets before the end of the first quarter.
