Although we haven’t seen them advertised in any of the Black Friday catalogs revealed of late by retailers as diverse as Best Buy, Walmart, Target or Newegg, it’s safe to assume Sony’s Xperia X-series phones will be treated soon to even deeper price cuts than over the past few weeks.
Already, the humblest member of the new Android handheld family, which is still sold for $250 on Amazon or Best Buy, plummets to an all-time low price of $169.99 at discount specialist B&H Photo Video.
You’ll have to hurry to get the unlocked Sony Xperia XA at 80 full bucks off list, as the one-day-only deal is set to expire in around 17 hours at the time of publication… and counting. Compatible with your GSM carrier of choice, and capable of reaching 4G LTE network speeds nationwide, the portable 5-incher is available in four different paint jobs, ranging from classic (graphite black) to classy (white), snazzy (lime gold), and snazzier yet (rose gold).
A fairly well-balanced mid-ranger, the XA doesn’t thrill in any way, but it won’t disappoint cash-strapped Android enthusiasts either. Powered by Marshmallow, due for a Nougat update before long, Helio P10, 2GB RAM and 2,300 mAh battery-packing, the featherweight also delivers a respectable photography experience, thanks to 13MP Exmor RS and 8MP Exmor R camera sensors.
