Sony Xperia XA2, XA2 Ultra and L2 officially unveiled at CES 2018

11 January 2018

The Xperia XA2 phones feature a 23MP main camera sensor on the back and. Around front is a 120-degree wide-angle camera with a resolution of 8 megapixels.

A rep for Sony made it sound like this will be a turning point for the Xperia line and that fingerprint sensors will stop being disabled in the USA from here on out.

There isn't a great choice of smartphones with screens this size at the sort of price point the Xperia XA2 will be pitched at, which means it may be able to carve out a nice niche for itself for those looking for an affordable Netflix/gaming device. 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. 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. Usually, there's more of a gap separating the old versus the new, so you could say we're a little bit confused by the hasty turnaround time with this successor. Sony Xperia XA2 has a 5.2-inch Full HD display with "a borderless design, taking the screen right to the edge".

Haley tells ABC's "This Week" that there's " no turnaround " in the USA position. It's not my understanding that they're going to talk about anything further.

"Over at the rear, the XA2 Ultra features a 23MP 1/2.3" Exmor RS camera that's capable of ISO 12800 sensitivity for low light photography. There is an 8MP front-facer that has a 120-degree wide-angle lens. 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).

It has also been revealed that some regions will get a fingerprint sensor on the back of the device. The Ultra version gets a 16MP + 8MP front camera with Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS) on the 16MP sensor.

Xperia XA2 Ultra will be available in Single SIM and Dual SIM in select markets, in four contemporary colours: Silver, Black, Blue and Gold.

Sony pulled no punches in the battery department and fitted a 3,300mAh power pack in the L2, up from 2,620mAh on the L1.

Meanwhile, the XA2 Ultra has a 6-inch 1080p display and dual-selfie cameras. In particular, this new model boasts a smaller sized 5.2-inch Full HD display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 SoC, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, and a higher capacity 3300 mAh battery. "We're targeting 2018 as a breakthrough year, and look forward to showcasing further innovations across the entire Xperia portfolio over the coming months", Hideyuki Furumi, EVP of Sony's global sales & marketing, said in a statement. Quick charging is also supported to give you hours of power with just minutes of charging (requires Quick Charger UCH12W).

Three has also confirmed it will be stocking the XA2 but will announce pricing and availability at a later date.
