Sony’s “super mid-range” Xperia XA1 phone is now available to preorder through Amazon and Best Buy. It’ll go on sale at other retailers, like B&H and Fry’s, on May 1st. The phone will cost $299.99.

The company announced the device during Mobile World Congress this year. Here are the specs again:

  • 5-inch, 720p HD display
  • MediaTek Helio P20 processor
  • 3GB of RAM; 32GB of storage
  • 23-megapixel rear-facing camera, 8-megapixel front-facing camera
  • 2,300mAh battery
  • USB-C

The XA1 and the larger XA1 Ultra also feature something called “Xperia Actions,” which Sony says can learn users’ habits to automatically change settings and manage apps. For instance, the phone’s software could learn your bedtime and automatically adjust screen brightness and volume.
