It's official: the Sony Xperia XA1 Ultra will be a Vodafone exclusive.

Here's all the details on the handset, and how much it will set you back.

We first heard of the XA12 Ultra at MWC 2017, where Sony was really looking to highlight the phone's cameras.

"We're excited to introduce the new Xperia XA1 Ultra in the Australian market, particularly its impressive 16MP front camera and 23mm wide-angle lens to help users capture the perfect spontaneous selfie, or indeed groupie," said John Featherstone, Manager Director of Sony Mobile Communications Oceania.

"We've also amplified the beautiful borderless design, introduced in 2016, with a full HD (1080p) 6-inch screen, and octa-core processors, meaning the viewing experience is crisp and the performance is smooth. The Xperia XA1 Ultra is impressive and a real breakthrough in our mid-range smartphone offering."
