The XA1 doesn't support that feature

Remote Play for PS4

As I just figured out, is that there is no remote play on this device as of now.
Will there be remote play for this device in a later update or near future?
Is it even possible for this device to actually support Remote play?

I thought it was pretty neat because it has a 6 inch screen and pretty decent specs.

Re: Remote Play for PS4

Hi @Nimfix, welcome to our forum and I'm sorry for the late reply, I have been on vacation.

 

I'm afraid that the Xperia XA1 Ultra will not get support for PS4™ Remote Play in a coming software update.

I hope that answers your question!

Hi all. 

Just a little curiosity before I buy an Xperia phone.

If not, what Xperia devices are compatible with remote play?

 

Thank you for your time.

Re: Ps4 remote play

Thank you. 

I've been looking into the info about the XZ1 and XZ1 compact on the sony website as well.

 

To be honest the XZ premium is still a bit expensive on contract and I'm looking to upgrade soon.

 

Seems like the closeste to the XZ premium are the XZ1's.

 

Abou the normal XZ1. Is the processor an octa core? As when I loom for info it doesn't say but on the XZ1 compact it shows the same cpu and it says is Octa core.

 

Once agun thank you for the helpful info.

Re: Ps4 remote play

Hi again @Fleonharth! Slightly smiling Face

You are correct, the closest device to Xperia XZ Premium is the Xperia XZ1, however it's smaller in size and the Xperia XZ1 Compact is even smaller.

All three of these devices have the same CPU (Snapdragon 835, Octa-core (2.45 GHz / 1.9 GHz).

The Xperia XZ1/Xperia XZ Premium both have 64 GB of internal storage and the Xperia XZ1 Compact have 32 GB internal storage, however both have support for SD cards.

You can find some more information on all three devices on the links below, regarding specifications and if there is some information that you can't find, I will do my best to assist you with that information! Slightly smiling Face
