"Xperia XA2Xperia XA2's 23MP rear camera packs Sony's large 1/2.3" Exmor RS for mobile image sensor, with ISO 12800 sensitivity for clear low-light photography.

The mid-range devices feature rear-facing fingerprint scanners and 120-degree wide-angle selfie cameras.

Talking about the smartphones, the Sony Xperia XA2 and Xperia XA2 Ultra differ in terms of some of the specifications. The two phones have 3,300 mAh battery and 3,580 mAh battery respectively.

The XA2 and XA2 Ultra will launch on Android 8.0 Oreo, with Sony's minimal customizations on top.

We do know that in the United Kingdom, it will be available from O2 and Three, and we'll update this hands on review as soon as we know more about the cost. The larger Xperia XA2 Ultra is Sony's first smartphone that offers dual-selfie cameras with Optical Image Stabilisation and it can even take wide-angle selfies.

The XA2 has a 5.2-inch 1080p display that's a sizable jump from last generation's 5-inch 720p panel.

On the imaging front, both the XA2 and XA2 Ultra come with a 23MP primary camera with an aperture of f/2.0. Sony has bumped RAM up to 3GB and doubled the storage to 32GB, so the L2 has nothing to be ashamed of in those departments. 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.

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

The Xperia L2 adopts the same metallic design and rear fingerprint sensor, with a 5.5-inch HD display. The main camera has been moved from the top left corner to the central axis of the back, in line with the fingerprint sensor - yes, Xperias now come with a rear-mounted always-on fingerprint sensor.

Sony apparently loves its "super" mid-range phones, evident in how CES 2018 is seeing a pair of brand new phones coming to market starting in February. The 3,300 mAh battery means you can do more of what you love for longer, and intuitive Xperia smart charging technologies ensure the battery stays healthy during its lifespan.

The Xperia XA2 and the Ultra model both use a Full HD display, although visuals will appear sharper on the standard version thanks to its reduced screen size. Like the XA2, it supports fast charging with the optional Fast Charger.

Apart from that, the Xperia L2 is expected to feature a 5.5-inch display, and a 16:9 aspect ratio and will be powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 630 SoC, paired with 4GB of RAM.

Three has also confirmed it will be stocking the XA2 but will announce pricing and availability at a later date.

The Sony Xperia XA2 Ultra boasts a familiar Sony design, which isn't the most exciting out there, but it is at least functional.
