Storage and Performance
As for the internal storage, the Xperia X Ultra will house an internal storage of 64 GB which can be further expanded with a microSD card up to 256 GB. That way you can download and store many apps and files. At its heart, the Xperia X Ultra will equip a Snapdragon 660 processor with 8 cores. Along with its 4 GB RAM, it will deliver a flawless performance and lag-free multitasking.

The Xperia X Ultra will sport an impressive rear snapper with a 19-megapixel resolution. This is coupled with an LED flash that will allow users to record videos and shoot images even in dimly-lit environments. The front snapper, on the other hand, will pack a 13-megapixel resolution which is decent enough for selfies and video calling. In terms of battery life, the Xperia X Ultra is expected to come with a non-removable Li-Ion 3,050 mAh battery with a fast-charging support; all thanks to its Quick Charge 3.0 technology.
