Following up on the Xperia XA2 mid-range series from earlier this year, new renders have surfaced to give us an early look at its successors — the Xperia XA3 and XA3 Ultra. These renders come by way of MySmartPrice, and should they turn out to be legit, we could be looking at an exciting affordable smartphone lineup from Sony this year.

One of the biggest things to take note of is that the XA3 and XA3 Ultra will be the first mid-range Sony Xperia phones to have an 18:9 display. This makes them a lot narrower compared to the XA2 and XA2 Ultra and the bezels surrounding the screens have been shrunk down substantially.

Also present on the phones are dual rear cameras. While the specs of the sensors are still unknown, expect them to be fairly high as the single rear shooter on the XA2 and XA2 Ultra came in at 23MP. Other goodies include a 3.5mm headphone jack, side-mounted fingerprint sensor, Snapdragon 660 processor, and as much as 6GB RAM with 64GB of internal storage.
