The Xperia XA2 phones feature a 23MP main camera sensor on the back and. Sony Xperia XA2 series has a rear fingerprint sensor with an aluminium body. Assuming if Sony can retain the same pricing for the XA2/XA2 Ultra, these two can be serious contenders in the mid-range segment. Sony fit a 3,300 mAh battery that is 40 percent larger than before.

Both the Xperia XA2 and the Xperia XA2 Ultra will hit the United Kingdom in February 2018. It's a sign that Sony might start taking the U.S. market more seriously - or at the very least, that it'll stand a bit more of a chance against competitors, rather than lacking a major and critical feature.

On the back is a 13-megapixel camera with f/2.0 aperture while an 8-megapixel front-facing camera with 120-degree wide-angle lens adorns the front. The standard Xperia XA2 has a 5.2-inch screen, so should prove relatively simple to use with one hand.

On the camera front, both the XA2 and XA2 Ultra come with a 23-mp primary camera lens. On the front both smartphones have an 8MP ultra wide fixed-focus camera to get all your friends in the frame. Running the show is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 630, 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. Sony Xperia XA2 comes in silver, black, blue and pink, while the Xperia XA2 Ultra replaces to pink with gold and the Xperia L2 offers black, gold and pink hues.

As above, Sony has advised only the XA2 is heading to Australia, though if they change their minds we'll be sure to let you know.

The rivalry is intense in the mid-range selfie smartphone race, but the Japanese tech giant aims to break into the competition with its Xperia XA2, XA2 Ultra and Xperia L2 smartphones.




Meanwhile, the XA2 Ultra has a 6-inch 1080p display and dual-selfie cameras.

The Sony Xperia XA2 is the successor of the past year launched Xperia XA and comes with a 5.5-inch full HD display with 1080x1920 pixel resolution and Sony's Image Enhance technology.

The 16MP camera features OIS (optical image stabilization), which improves low-light performance and is assisted by a LED flash to really brighten up shots without a loss of quality. Quick charging is also supported to give you hours of power with just minutes of charging (requires Quick Charger UCH12W).

But it's got a decent 3,300mAh battery that benefits from Sony's Xperia smart charging technologies.

Under the hood, it runs on a Snapdragon 630 processor and powering the device is a larger 3,580mAh battery. The Xperia L2 is launching with a MediaTek MT6735P, a less impressive camera module, and 3GBs of RAM. It is available in three colors, namely gold, black, and pink.

The smartphones are expected to launch soon, with the Xperia L2 coming in late January and the Xperia XA2 and XA2 Ultra coming in February.
