CES 2018: Sony adds to mid-range smartphone line-up

CES 2018: Sony adds to mid-range smartphone line-up

Both the Xperia XA2 and the Xperia XA2 Ultra will hit the United Kingdom in February 2018. This doesn't necessarily mean that they'll be underpowered phones, as both offer a Snapdragon 630 processor and similarly sized batteries (3,300 mAh for the XA2 and 3,580 mAh for the XA2 Ultra).

Yes, is the simple answer to that question as a Sony representative has confirmed to AndroidHeadlines that when these three devices arrive in the United States, they will arrive with fully-working and usable fingerprint sensors.

"Xperia XA2 and XA2 Ultra are no different, with leading front camera technology first seen in our flagship XZ line". The XA2 Ultra gets 4GB of RAM and 32GB/64GB storage versions, and within that massive body Sony's found room for a dedicated microSD slot, even on the dual SIM Ultra. Now, if you're the kind of user that appreciates hand-friendly sized phones, like those that are relatively easy to manipulate using just a single hand, then you'll surely appreciate what the upcoming Sony Xperia XA2 will offer.

The Xperia XA2 features specs that are almost identical to the XA2 Ultra, but squeezed into a more compact housing with a 5.2-inch FHD display. With its dual selfie camera setup - comprised of a 16-megapixel, 1/2.6-inch Exmor RS for mobile sensor with optical image stabilisation (OIS) equipped 88-degree, f/2.0 wide-angle lens and an 8-megapixel, Exmor R for mobile sensor with 120-degree, f/2.4 super wide-angle lens - the XA2 Ultra is definitely a smartphone "engineered for selfies". The two phones have 3,300 mAh battery and 3,580 mAh battery respectively. As of today, Sony Mobile Australia has advised that only the Xperia XA2 will be heading down under.

As expected, the display has increased in both size and resolution over the XA1, to 5.2-inch full HD and Sony has given the XA2 a fingerprint sensor, something the XA1 didn't feature. Unlike the previous model, Sony has stepped things up with the processor in the XA2, offering a Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 SoC, 3GB of RAM and 32GB of onboard storage with microSDXC support (up to 256GB). As usual, Sony is still bundling its Battery Care and Qnovo Adaptive Charging for a quicker charge while preserving its overall battery lifespan. Battery on the Xperia XA2 is 3,300 mAh and comes with Quick charging support.

"As stated by Sony, the Xperia L2's expansive 5.5" HD screen is great for enjoying video, browsing and social networks on the go. This will come in Black, Gold and Pink colour options.

Sony Xperia L2 will hit the shelves in late January.

The Xperia L2 comes with a 5.5-inch screen with HD resolution, a 1.5GHz MediaTek quad-core processor, 3GB RAM and 32GB expandable storage. Meanwhile the Xperia XA2 Ultra comes in silver, black, blue and gold.
