Sony Xperia XA2, XA2 Ultra, and L2 price and availability revealed
Sony has officially announced pricing and availability info for the Xperia XA2, XA2 Ultra, and the Xperia L2. The mid-range trio which broke cover at CES 2018 in early January will be available in the United States through Amazon and Best Buy. Here's a table with all the important details:
Sony Xperia XA2 and XA2 Ultra
The Sony Xperia XA2 and XA2 Ultra are both powered by the octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 SoC. The regular XA2 has 3 GB of RAM, while the Ultra sports 4 GB of the stuff. The smaller phone only has 32 GB of storage, while its bigger sibling also has a 64 GB variant, with both models supporting storage enhancement via a microSD card.
Both handsets feature a 23 MP main camera on their backs. On the front, the Xperia XA2 has a single, 120-degree wide-angle, 8 MP camera to help you get more stuff into your selfie shots. The Xperia XA2 Ultra has two selfie snappers — the same wide-angle one as on its smaller sibling and a 16 MP one that is assisted by its own OIS module for extra-stable, extra-detailed selfies.
The major difference between the two handsets is in the display department. The "regular" Xperia XA2 has a 5.2-inch display with a 1080 x 1920 pixel resolution, while the XA2 Ultra is — as you might have guessed — bigger, with a 6-inch, 1080 x 1920 display. The two phones boast pretty respectable batteries — 3,300 mAh on the Xperia XA2 and 3,580 mAh on the Xperia XA2 Ultra.
It's also worth mentioning that these are the first Sony handsets to arrive with a functioning fingerprint scanner in the US. Last but not least, they are both running Android 8 Oreo out of the box. If you'd like to see the duo in action, feel free to check out our hands-onvideos for the two.
Sony Xperia L2
Meanwhile, the Xperia L2 is a more modest and budget-friendly specimen. Its main characteristics include a quad-core MediaTek MT6737T SoC, a 5.5-inch 720p screen, 3GB RAM, 32GB of internal storage + microSD support, a 13 MP main snapper + an 8 MP selfie shooter, and a 3,300mAh power cell. The Xperia L2 also features a fingerprint scanner and is running on Android 7.1 Nougat.
