Sony Xperia XA2 and Xperia XA2 Ultra will be available starting February
Sony’s brand new smartphones — the Xperia XA2, Xperia XA2 Ultra, and Xperia L2 — are actually official, and will be available within the US in March.
The Japanese manufacturer introduced its new mid-variety smartphones at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES), but unlike its past smartphones that include fingerprint scanners in a facet-set up button, these new phones will introduce rear-going through fingerprint scanners. The exchange is possibly an improvement, however it may additionally function a touch of what is to return for premium Sony smartphones.
The Sony Xperia XA2 and Xperia XA2 Ultra both sport a “loop surface” design that is composed of anodised aluminium sides and a diamond-cut finish on the top and bottom. Unlike some of the widely popular mid-range options, the new Xperia XA2 range doesn’t have a full-screen, thin-bezel display. However, there is a rear-facing fingerprint sensor to match the trend. This is something odd if we compare the new models with any of the previous Sony smartphones that were debuted with a fingerprint sensor-embedded, side-located power button. Moreover, there are features such as SmartAmp, Clear Audio+, and Qualcomm’s aptX HD audio.
Among the two, the Sony Xperia XA2 features a 5.2-inch full-HD (1920×1080 pixels) display that is protected with a Corning Gorilla Glass panel. The Sony Xperia XA2 Ultra, on the other hand, has a 6-inch full-HD display.
The other major change between the Sony Xperia XA2 and Xperia XA2 Ultra is the front camera setup. 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. Contrarily, the Xperia XA2 Ultra sports a dual selfie camera setup – comprises 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 primary 16-megapixel camera sensor also supports sensitivity of ISO 6400 in addition to the default ISO 3200 on the secondary 8-megapixel camera sensor.
Both the new Android Oreo-based Sony Xperia smartphones are powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 SoC. The Xperia XA2 has 3GB of RAM, while the Xperia XA2 Ultra has 4GB of RAM. The smartphones have a 23-megapixel Exmor RS camera sensor that comes in 1/2.3-inch size and has 84-degree, f/2.0 wide-angle lens. The camera sensor has hybrid autofocus and supports 4K video recording in addition to the company’s proprietary SteadyShot functionality.
