Sony Xperia XA2 Ultra leaks in live images with rather thick bezels
by Cosmin Vasile / Jan 01, 2018, 10:44 AM
The Xperia XA2 Ultra is one of the many smartphones that Sony plans to reveal in Q1 2018. Previously leaked as Sony H4233, the device was recently spotted at the Malaysian regulatory agency SIRIM with its real name.
Now, we have a couple of live pictures showing the phone's front and back sides. Despite rumors that Sony will completely redesign its Xperia lineup, the Xperia XA2 Ultra doesn't show any signs of improvement from this point of view.
It's true, the phone comes with really thin bezels on the left and right sides, but the chins are as thick as the previous Xperia models. Still, this seems to be a mid-range device, so previous reports claiming we should expect bezel-less Xperia phones this year might be accurate, but only when it comes to top-tier handsets.
Sony Xperia XA2 Ultra is said to feature a 6-inch full HD (1080p) display and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 processor, paired with 4GB RAM and 64GB expandable storage. Also, the phone comes with a 21-megapixel main camera, dual selfie cameras, and a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor.
The pictures leaked today confirm Sony will include Android 8.0 Oreo on the Xperia XA2 Ultra. It's yet unclear whether or not the phone will go official at CES (Consumers Electronics Show) 2018 early this month or in late February at MWC (Mobile World Congress) trade fair.

You call that "thick"? What the hell people, get it together. Let's say you're watching a landscape video on your super-cool bezelless phone - what you're gonna hold it by when there's no chin? Nobezels is a fad.

I rest my thumbs on the top corners of my Note8 and iPhone X when watching landscape videos...and so far, it hasn't bothered me one bit. Video watching was the main thing that had me worried about bezels disappearing, because I too used to rest my thumbs on the bezels....but the top corners work just as great.

This is a midrange plus it has a 1.2/6 front cam. What do you expect?

Imx300 as front cam, front speakers, 4000mAh, sided FPS like XA1+ and SD640 would be welcome. I'd pay 500 for ...

If this is their strategy, Sony will probably sell their mobile division in 2018 to some Chinese company for pennies on the dollar.

Why can’t anybody use the SD 636? Every mid-range phone releasing is using either the 1.7 year old 625, or the 630. No regards for those Cortex A72s in the SD 636; such an excellent chip. And yet, everybody refrains from using it. I say whoever is planning to implement the SD 630 in a 200-350$ phone in 2018, increase its price by $5 but include the 636 at once, please!

Coz a few bucks more you can get a 2016 or even a 2017 flagship and have more features than a 63x Snapdragon phone.
