  • Xperia XA2 & XA2 Ultra

We thought that Sony might be plotting some new Xperia devices, and sure enough, it's showing up to CES 2018 with three new handsets in tow.

Sony's next entry is the much larger Xperia XA2 Ultra, which features a huge 6-inch Full HD display - that's half an inch bigger than Apple's iPhone 8 Plus. The Xperia XA2 Ultra and Xperia XA2 are mid-range smartphones and will be powered by Android Oreo 8.0. 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). Sony Xperia L2 will be available in single SIM and dual SIM modes in select markets, with three colour options: black, gold and pink.

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

When we jump over to look at the L2, we again see numerous same features, only pared back a bit.

Apart from that, the Xperia L2 is expected to feature a 5.5-inch display, and a 16:9 aspect ratio and will be powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 630 SoC, paired with 4GB of RAM. On the front, the XA2 makes do with a single 8MP fixed-focus camera and the XA2 pairs the 8Mp sensor with a secondary 16MP wide-angle sensor with optical image stabilisation. Quick charging is also supported to give you hours of power with just minutes of charging (requires Quick Charger UCH12W). It has only one front-facing camera but all the other features are identical to the XA2 Ultra. The two selfie centric smartphones succeed last year's XA1 and XA1 Ultra and improve upon them in key areas such as battery, cameras and processor.

If you're looking for something smaller, there's the Xperia XA2.

The Xperia XA2 and XA2 Ultra have very similar features but there are some big differences between the devices. Battery on the Xperia XA2 is 3,300 mAh and comes with Quick charging support. There's no word on what it'll be priced when it's released, but do know that it's anticipated to land sometime in sometime in February in colors like silver, black, blue, and pink.

The XA2 has a 5.2-inch 1080p display that's a sizable jump from last generation's 5-inch 720p panel. The Xperia L2 is launching with a MediaTek MT6735P, a less impressive camera module, and 3GBs of RAM. Also launching in the USA, it is available in Black, Gold, and Pink. The Sony Xperia L2 is successor of the Xperia L smartphone which the company launched 2013.

While it's packaged along with a 23MP rear camera, the same megapixel account as its predecessor, Sony is stressing the phone's performance under low light thanks to its higher ISO sensitivity of 12800. The Xperia L2 will ship with Android 7.1.1 Nougat.
