  • Sony revamps mid-range w/ Xperia XA2, XA2 Ultra, adds new fingerprint sensor, metal design

At CES overnight, Sony has announced three new phones at their media conference with the rumoured Xperia XA2, XA2 Ultra and L2 now official. Two sizes of mid-tier handsets, the Xperia XA2 and Xperia XA2 Ultra, and the entry-level Xperia L2 usher in a new design language and a focus on endurance.

The Xperia XA2 and the Xperia XA2 Ultra are very similar devices, but the Ultra has a few more tricks up its sleeve. The smartphone is powered by a 2.2GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 processor paired with 4GB of RAM.

Both of these new Sony devices boast a stunning edge-to-edge display, meaning they're pleasingly thin when grasped. Around the front of the standard Xperia XA2, you get an 8-megapixel super-wide-angle lens that can capture 120-degree images.

Connectivity is another big aspect here, as you'll enjoy two USB 3.0 ports, and for the first time, two USB 3.1 Type-C ports. Actually, the OS is a full Linux distribution that is both extremely secure and easy to use.

When we jump over to look at the L2, we again see numerous same features, only pared back a bit. Coming to the Xperia L2, this has a 5.5-inch HD display, 3,300 mAh battery, 120-degree super wide-angle 8MP front camera and a 13MP rear camera. The camera remains the same with a 23MP rear sensor and 8MP front-facing camera with 120° super wide-angle lens and f/2.4 aperture.

"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. Quick charging is also supported to give you hours of power with just minutes of charging (requires Quick Charger UCH12W).

The battery, meanwhile, is slightly larger at 3,580mAh to support the bigger display. Colours for the Xperia XA2 Ultra are Silver, Black, Blue and Gold. The Xperia XA2 Ultra and Xperia L2 will also be available in single-SIM and dual-SIM models for different markets.

Sony Xperia XA2 Ultra seems to be the one to steal the show with its dual camera setup in the front. As of today, Sony Mobile Australia has advised that only the Xperia XA2 will be heading down under. While the XA1 and XA1 Ultra came with small sub 3,000mAh batteries, the XA2 and XA2 Ultra are equipped with much bigger power packs - 3,300mAh and 3,580mAh respectively.

"The 5.2" Full HD display is brighter, sharper and more colourful - it sits within a borderless design, taking the screen right to the edge. The Xperia L2 is launching with a MediaTek MT6735P, a less impressive camera module, and 3GBs of RAM.

The fingerprint scanner on the rear is easy to hit, and Sony has shifted it from its more commonly side-mounted location. The smartphone runs Android 7.1.1 Nougat operating system and offers 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage which can be expanded further via microSD card.

Bringing it all together with Google Pay
Also, the same changes are supposed to reflect in Google Tez UPI (Unified Payment Interface) app launched in India. Starting today, Android Pay and Google Wallet will henceforth be combined into the all-encompassing Google Pay.

The Sony Xperia XA2 Ultra boasts a familiar Sony design, which isn't the most exciting out there, but it is at least functional.
