  • Sony revamps mid-range w/ Xperia XA2, XA2 Ultra, adds new fingerprint sensor, metal design

The Xperia XA2 phones feature a 23MP main camera sensor on the back and.

Sony is yet to embrace the bezel-less craze and the XA2 and XA2 still come with traditional 16:9 displays with sizeable top and bottom bezels.

You get the same smartphone smarts in these Sony mobiles also.

The Sony Xperia L2 runs Android 7.0 and is powered by a 3300mAh non removable battery.

"Our super mid-range product strategy started out as an exciting new idea based on bringing bold technologies to this section of the market in the most accessible way possible", said Ciaran Cleary from Sony Mobile Ireland. Around the front of the standard Xperia XA2, you get an 8-megapixel super-wide-angle lens that can capture 120-degree images.

"Xperia XA2 and XA2 Ultra are no different, with leading front camera technology first seen in our flagship XZ line". On the camera fornt, the L2 possesses 8-mp front camera lens and 13-mp rear camera lens.

While the previous XA1 smartphones were saddled with underperforming MediaTek processors, the XA2 and XA2 Ultra are powered by the much more sensible and powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 processor.

It has also been revealed that some regions will get a fingerprint sensor on the back of the device.

Yes, is the simple answer to that question as a Sony representative has confirmed to AndroidHeadlines that when these three devices arrive in the U.S., they will arrive with fully-working and usable fingerprint sensors.

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. There's no word on what it'll be priced when it's released, but do know that it's anticipated to land sometime in sometime in February in colors like silver, black, blue, and pink.

One of the big talking points on the Sony Xperia XA2 Ultra is its screen, measuring 6 inches and packing in a full HD, 1080p resolution. "It looks like the XA2 Ultra except that it comes with a 5.2" Full HD display and there's just a single 8MP front camera that's capable of 120-degree super wide-angle selfies. Like the XA2 duo, the Xperia L2 has a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor and will be available soon dual-SIM and single-SIM variants in black, gold and pink colour finishes. The XA2 and XA2 Ultra come with 3,300mAH and 3,580mAH battery size respectively. This one has a bigger 3,580 mAh battery along with Quick Charge support. At the more budget end there is the Xperia L2 which follows on from last year's Xperia L1.

Under the hood, it runs on a Snapdragon 630 processor and powering the device is a larger 3,580mAh battery.

Sony Xperia L2 will hit the shelves in late January.
