Each of these handsets is expected to be unveiled soon, but there is some uncertainty whether Sony will showcase them at the CES next week or during MWC in February.
Remember about the leaked Sony Xperia XA2 Ultra photo we showed you? The XA2 and XA2 Ultra will both have a 21MP rear camera, while the front facing cameras differ wildly. But unlike today's flagships which are mostly equipped with rear-dual-lens camera, the upcoming XA2 Ultra is hoping to be different by placing the dual-lens setup on the front for better selfies.
One major change is the fingerprint sensor being placed on the rear of the device. We saw their images leaked with dual selfie cameras (Ultra only), making us excited since phones with dual selfie cams are not common. Interestingly, the company has skipped the fingerprint sensor, which was present on the power button.
The screen on the XA2 has increased by 0.2-inches over the XA1 to 5.2-inch and receives a jump in resolution to full HD 1920 x 1080.
The report mentions that these mid-range Sony smartphones could be shifting from MediaTek to Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 processor. Apart from that, the Xperia XA2 is expected to be available in a 3GB RAM/ 32GB storage configuration, and the Xperia XA2 Ultra is also expected to have a 4GB RAM/ 64GB storage variant. Both sides can record 4K videos. It also remains to be seen whether both flagships can replicate the success of the Xperia A1 models since that apparently is a tall order to fill given the features for the price tag of said phones. In terms of software, the Xperia L2 will ship with the older Android Nougat OS out of the box instead of 8.0 Oreo on the Xperia XA2 duo.
On the specifications front, little is known about the smartphone. To give you a quick refresher, the Sony Xperia XA2 is going to be the smaller of the two phones with a 5.2-inch full HD screen.
