As an upgrade to the Xperia XA1, the XA2 features a similar design, but naturally comes with updated internals.
All three models feature a rear fingerprint scanner - a first for Sony Mobile.
Are these Sony phones cut out to be selfie leaders? So love it or hate it, it's likely here to stay for now. The new XA2, XA2 Ultra, and L2 devices have all been announced just ahead of this week's Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, where Sony will showcase the smartphones. Here's everything that we know about these devices.
Both the Xperia XA2 and XA2 Ultra come with the traditional 16:9 pixel-ratio display and a bezel-less screen.
There are also improvements internally. The 5.2-inch Xperia XA2 comes with 3GB RAM and 32GB storage onboard, while the 6-inch XA2 Ultra has 4GB RAM and 32GB/64GB storage options. The 3,300 mAh battery means you can do more of what you love for longer, and intuitive Xperia smart charging technologies ensure the battery stays healthy during its lifespan.
Apart from that, there is little known about the Xperia L2. The Xperia XA2 has a single, 8-megapixel, 1/4-inch Exmor R for mobile image sensor with 120-degree, f/2.4 wide-angle lens. The handset features a 16MP OIS sensor and an 8MP 120-degree wide-angle sensor accompanied by a front flash to produce good selfies regardless of the lighting around you. Furthermore, both the XA2 and XA2 Ultra will run Android 8.0 Oreo.
Sony Xperia L2 smartphone is a low-end entry level Android smartphone from Sony. It means that the Xperia L2 will offer better battery output than the L1. Except for Xperia L2, other two devices have Qualcomm Snapdragon 630. Pricing will be confirmed at the time of availability. The Xperia XA2 has 3 GB of RAM and a native storage of 32 GB whereas the larger XA2 Ultra includes 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage. There's also an unspecified version of Corning Gorilla Glass protection.
Another important factor is battery life, the Xperia XA2 will have a high-capacity 3,300 mAh battery that will feature Sony's smart charging technologies and Smart Stamina that helps extends the phones life during the day.
There's a decent amount of power under the hood with 3GB of RAM working alongside the MediaTek processor. The camera sensor has hybrid autofocus and supports 4K video recording in addition to the company's proprietary SteadyShot functionality. A 3300mAh battery lives in the XA2, while a 3580mAh cell lives in the Ultra variant. The wide-angle lens is used only for wider photos, and no Bokeh effects, though.
Compare that to the 1280 x 720, 5-inch IPS LCD panel on the XA1 which had only 294 pixels-per-inch, and it strikes you just how much of an improvement this is.
