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.
Meanwhile the 8MP camera boasts a 120 degree field of view, allowing you to pack in a whole group of people for a selfie. Xperia XA2 is composed of anodised aluminium on the sides, with a diamond-cut finish on the top and bottom, accentuating the industrial beauty of metal.
Talking about the smartphones, the Sony Xperia XA2 and Xperia XA2 Ultra differ in terms of some of the specifications. As a comparison, the current XA1 Ultra only comes with a 2,700mAh battery.
"Our super mid-range product strategy started out as an exciting new idea based on bringing bold technologies to this section of the market in the most accessible way possible", said Hideyuki Furumi, EVP, Global Sales & Marketing, at Sony Mobile Communications. The larger Xperia XA2 Ultra is Sony's first smartphone that offers dual-selfie cameras with Optical Image Stabilisation and it can even take wide-angle selfies.
The Xperia XA2 is a bit more compact, however, with a 5.2-inch FHD display. With the other two arriving as the latest additions to the Xperia XA line, the Xperia XA2 and the XA2 Ultra.
While the previous XA1 smartphones were saddled with underperforming MediaTek processors, the XA2 and XA2 Ultra are powered by the much more sensible and powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 processor. The XA2 Ultra will come in four different colors such as gold, blue, black, and silver. For quick unlocking, the device comes with a one-touch fingerprint sensor that's integrated onto the metallic back panel. For instance, the XA2 ships with a 5.2-inch Full HD display, while the XA2 Ultra bumps up the screen size to 6-inches while keeping resolution at 1080p.
Imaging is handled by the rear 23-megapixel camera and the front 8-megapixel sensor. 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. It might be the fact that the display on the Xperia L2 has massive borders.
They will be available in the U.S. in February. Other specs include a 13-megapixel rear camera, an 8-megapixel wide-angle front-facing camera, a 5.5-inch 720p display, 32GB of storage, microSDXC support, 3GB of RAM, and a 3,300 mAh battery. Quick Charge is supported by both new phones, for a nippy recharge.
