CES 2018: Sony Xperia XA2, XA2 Ultra And L2 Launched

Finally, the Xperia L2 is a slightly more entry-level phone compared to the XA2 duo.

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 3580mAh battery of the Ultra is larger than the 3300mAh cell of the normal Xperia XA2, although we're hoping for over a full day of use in either case.

Sony has not yet revealed pricing details for the smartphones. Sony fit a 3,300 mAh battery that is 40 percent larger than before.

Both the Xperia XA2 and Xperia XA2 Ultra will be available starting February 2018 with Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box. Prior Sony devices featured a fingerprint sensor integrated in the power button, but the new phones have now moved it to the back of the device like many other phones.

The XA2 has a 5.2-inch 1080p display that's a sizable jump from last generation's 5-inch 720p panel.

"Xperia XA2 and XA2 Ultra are no different, with leading front camera technology first seen in our flagship XZ line".

With MediaTek processors, the XA2 and XA2 Ultra are powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 chipset. The Xperia XA2 comes in Siler, Black, Blue and Pink, while the Xperia XA 2 Ultra comes in Silver, Black, Blue and Gold.

Meanwhile, the XA2 Ultra has a 6-inch 1080p display and dual-selfie cameras. That's not enough selfie prowess for the Ultra, though - it also has a 16MP shooter with less extreme FOV, 16:9 aspect, autofocus, and OIS.

As above, Sony has advised only the XA2 is heading to Australia, though if they change their minds we'll be sure to let you know. "It looks like the XA2 Ultra except that it comes with a 5.2" Full HD display and there's just a single 8MP front camera that's capable of 120-degree super wide-angle selfies. 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.

Both the XA2 and XA2 Ultra will have the Snapdragon 630 processor and have a 23-megapixel rear camera as mentioned. As usual, Sony is still bundling its Battery Care and Qnovo Adaptive Charging for a quicker charge while preserving its overall battery lifespan. At the more budget end there is the Xperia L2 which follows on from last year's Xperia L1.

Xperia L2 will launch in Single SIM and Dual SIM in select markets, in three colours: Black, Gold and Pink - each rendered with reflective surfaces, emphasising the "loop surface" design, and unlocking is made easy with a single touch via the rear fingerprint sensor. The Sony Xperia L2 is successor of the Xperia L smartphone which the company launched 2013.
