Description

Sony Xperia XA2 Plus is just a slightly modified version of the XA2 Ultra. Externally, the biggest change is the presence of a new 18:9 display panel. Also, Sony has equipped the device with a slightly more premium build that replaces the previous plastic rear with a new aluminum panel. Regardless of these external details, the differences between the two devices are virtually unnoticeable when it comes to the internal side of things. Starting off with the processor, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 630 can be found powering the device along with either 4GB or 6GB of RAM. Additionally, Sony is once again offering the choice of 32GB or 64GB of internal storage.

Display

  • Display size:
    • 6.0 inches
  • Resolution:
    • 1080 x 2160 pixels
  • Pixel density:

    Pixel density - The pixel density of a display represents the number of pixels over an area of one inch. It’s measured in “pixels per inch”, or ppi. The higher the number, the more detailed and good-looking the display is.

    • 402 ppi
  • Technology:

    Technology - There are two main screen technologies currently used in phones and tablets: LCD and AMOLED. The former usually features a light source and liquid crystals, while the latter is based on organic light-emitting diodes. Newer LCD variations like IPS-LCD and Super-LCD allow for very accurate color reproduction and very wide viewing angles, where no significant image quality loss is observed. Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.
