Xperia XA2 & XA2 Ultra

Xperia XA2 & XA2 Ultra

"Xperia XA2Xperia XA2's 23MP rear camera packs Sony's large 1/2.3" Exmor RS for mobile image sensor, with ISO 12800 sensitivity for clear low-light photography.

It also features that same 8MP wide angle front-facing camera, but around the back, camera quality has taken a fair hit, dropping to 13MP instead of the 23MP camera we get on both XA2 devices.

The third and final device is the Sony Xperia L2, which has a mid-sized 5.5-inch screen - albeit with a lower HD resolution. 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 battery, meanwhile, is slightly larger at 3,580mAh to support the bigger display.

The Xperia XA2 and the Xperia XA2 Ultra are very similar devices, but the Ultra has a few more tricks up its sleeve.

At launch, Sony will offer a new leather-look Style Cover Stand allowing you to stand the phone up for video playback.

While Xperia A2 has an 8-megapixel selfie-camera, Xperia XA2 Ultra features a 16-megapixel optical image stabilisation and another 8-megapixel sensor with 120-degree wide-angle lens.

The Xperia XA2 features specs that are almost identical to the XA2 Ultra, but squeezed into a more compact housing with a 5.2-inch FHD display.

It's round the front where things get interesting though, as the Xperia XA2 Ultra comes with 16MP and 8MP snappers. On the camera fornt, the L2 possesses 8-mp front camera lens and 13-mp rear camera lens.

The Xperia XA2 will be available in Single SIM and Dual SIM in select markets, in four fresh colours: Silver, Black, Blue and Pink.

It has also been revealed that some regions will get a fingerprint sensor on the back of the device.

The Xperia XA2 and XA2 Ultra come with a Snapdragon 630 chipset in charge of doing the math, replacing the Mediatek Helio P20 of last year's models - 14nm vs. 16nm silicon. Among them is Sony. 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.

The Sony Xperia XA2 is the successor of the previous year launched Xperia XA and comes with a 5.5-inch full HD display with 1080x1920 pixel resolution and Sony's Image Enhance technology.

On the other hand, the Sony Xperia XA2 Ultra sports a 6-inch full HD display with 1080x1920 pixel resolution.

"As stated by Sony, the Xperia L2's expansive 5.5" HD screen is great for enjoying video, browsing and social networks on the go. Silver, black, blue and pink are your choices for the Xperia XA2.

The smartphones are expected to launch soon, with the Xperia L2 coming in late January and the Xperia XA2 and XA2 Ultra coming in February.
