CES 2018: Sony unveils new super mid-range smartphones

Sony Xperia XA2 and Xperia XA2 Ultra will start shipping from February 2018 with pricing to be confirmed later on. The handset features a 16MP OIS sensor and an 8MP 120-degree wide-angle sensor accompanied by a front flash to produce good selfies regardless of the lighting around you. Sony Xperia XA2 series has a rear fingerprint sensor with an aluminium body.

Talking about the smartphones, the Sony Xperia XA2 and Xperia XA2 Ultra differ in terms of some of the specifications.

We're only a week into 2018 and already Sony Mobile has pulled back the curtain on some new mobile phones.

"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. With the other two arriving as the latest additions to the Xperia XA line, the Xperia XA2 and the XA2 Ultra. There's a 120° super wide-angle 8MP camera up front, so you can fit more of your friends and surroundings into selfies. 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).

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. The cheaper XA2 comes with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage while the XA2 Ultra has 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage.

HTC announces the new improved HTC Vive Pro, 3D Audio and more
But, like the rest of the market's high-end headsets, the Vive Pro will still only run with the help of a powerful computer. At the same time, HTC unveiled the Vive Wireless Adaptor , which they say will be the first wireless VR adapter to market.

Unlocking is made easy with the one-touch rear fingerprint sensor - integrated into the smooth metallic back panel.

The Sony Xperia XA2 is the successor of the a year ago launched Xperia XA and comes with a 5.5-inch full HD display with 1080x1920 pixel resolution and Sony's Image Enhance technology. 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. This array contains a 16-megapixel selfie camera with optical image stabilization, as well as the same 8-megapixel wide-angle camera.

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

"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. The smartphone packs a 3850mAh battery with Qualcomm Quick Charge support.

Xperia L2 comes with a 5.5-inch HD display and is powered by a 3,300mAh battery. Silver, black, blue and pink are your choices for the Xperia XA2. The Sony Xperia L2 is successor of the Xperia L smartphone which the company launched 2013.
