Sony Unveils 3 Mid-Tier Xperia Smartphones Ahead Of CES 2018


Finally, the Xperia L2 is a slightly more entry-level phone compared to the XA2 duo.

Sony's Xperia XA-series also marks the company's first set of phones to come with rear-facing fingerprint scanner.

The 3580mAh battery of the Ultra is larger than the 3300mAh cell of the normal Xperia XA2, although we're hoping for over a full day of use in either case. Assuming if Sony can retain the same pricing for the XA2/XA2 Ultra, these two can be serious contenders in the mid-range segment.

The 3,300 mAh battery and the Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 Mobile Platform means you can do more of what you love for longer with smooth and speedy performance. While this in itself is not confirmation that the likes of Sony's upcoming flagship Xperia XZ devices (currently rumored for an MWC 2018 announcement) will come with an active fingerprint sensor - they most likely will.

We're only a week into 2018 and already Sony Mobile has pulled back the curtain on some new mobile phones. The XA2 has a 5.2-inch FullHD display while the XA2 Ultra has a much bigger 6-inch FullHD display. The Xperia XA2 and Xperia XA2 Ultra are sequels to a pair of handsets that were released in the United Kingdom a year ago, namely the Xperia XA1 and XA1 Ultra. There's a 120° super wide-angle 8MP camera up front, so you can fit more of your friends and surroundings into selfies.

A few remained on the roof about an hour later after the fire was brought under control, the fire service said. In the meantime, social media users are sharing their thoughts about Trump Tower's rooftop inferno.

With MediaTek processors, the XA2 and XA2 Ultra are powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 chipset. The report highlights that the device will come with a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor.

Yes, is the simple answer to that question as a Sony representative has confirmed to AndroidHeadlines that when these three devices arrive in the USA, they will arrive with fully-working and usable fingerprint sensors. The Ultra version gets a 16MP + 8MP front camera with Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS) on the 16MP sensor. Battery on the Xperia XA2 is 3,300 mAh and comes with Quick charging support.

The lower-end model is the Xperia L2 (pictured up top), coming just under a year after the L1.

Xperia XA2 Ultra has the same rear camera as the regular variant, though the front camera is a dual one.

"With the same 23MP rear camera module as Xperia XA2, the large 1/2.3" Exmor RS for mobile sensor is capable of ISO 12800 sensitivity for better low-light photography - and the 4K movie recording and 120fps slow-motion video capture features allow you to preserve memories and magnify moments. As usual, Sony is still bundling its Battery Care and Qnovo Adaptive Charging for a quicker charge while preserving its overall battery lifespan. Also launching in the US, it is available in Black, Gold, and Pink. The Xperia XA2 and Xperia XA2 Ultra will launch in February.
