Sony unveils selfie-centric Xperia XA2, XA2 Ultra, and L2 smartphones

Xperia XA2 & XA2 Ultra

Sony doesn't mention what kind of processor the L2 uses, but we can probably expect it to be less powerful than the Snapdragon 630 found in the XA2 and XA2 Ultra.

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. When everyone is moving towards the trend of offering super large phones with minimal bezels, some will certainly appreciate the shorter stature of the Xperia XA2. Assuming if Sony can retain the same pricing for the XA2/XA2 Ultra, these two can be serious contenders in the mid-range segment. As a comparison, the current XA1 Ultra only comes with a 2,700mAh battery.

We're only a week into 2018 and already Sony Mobile has pulled back the curtain on some new mobile phones. With its dual selfie camera setup - comprised of a 16-megapixel, 1/2.6-inch Exmor RS for mobile sensor with optical image stabilisation (OIS) equipped 88-degree, f/2.0 wide-angle lens and an 8-megapixel, Exmor R for mobile sensor with 120-degree, f/2.4 super wide-angle lens - the XA2 Ultra is definitely a smartphone "engineered for selfies".

Gas Prices Rise in Washington, Hold in Wenatchee
He does see a short-lived drop in prices in late January, but expects prices to rise again after Valentine's Day. It is not clear whether or not these price hikes have anything to do with the increase to the liquid fuel tax.

The XA2 has a 5.2-inch 1080p display that's a sizable jump from last generation's 5-inch 720p panel. With the other two arriving as the latest additions to the Xperia XA line, the Xperia XA2 and the XA2 Ultra. There is an 8MP front-facer that has a 120-degree wide-angle lens. Running the show is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 630, 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. 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.

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

Yes, is the simple answer to that question as a Sony representative has confirmed to AndroidHeadlines that when these three devices arrive in the United States, they will arrive with fully-working and usable fingerprint sensors.

The new bride recently returned to Mumbai and jumped right into work by resuming the shoot for her much-anticipated film " Zero ". The actress got married to Indian cricketer Virat Kohli in an intimate wedding ceremony at Tuscany, Italy on December 11, 2017.

A 3,300mAh battery is used in the Xperia L2 and Xperia XA2, but the larger Xperia XA2 Ultra comes with a slightly bigger 3580mAh unit. The Xperia XA2 Ultra and Xperia L2 will also be available in single-SIM and dual-SIM models for different markets. The smartphone packs a 3850mAh battery with Qualcomm Quick Charge support.

And then there's the Xperia L2 - the unassuming entry-level Xperia, that grew out of the now defunct E-series. The battery is a 3,300mAh unit with fast-charging capabilities for quick power top-ups. This will come in Black, Gold and Pink colour options.

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