CES 2018: Sony adds to mid-range smartphone line-up

Now, if you're the kind of user that appreciates hand-friendly sized phones, like those that are relatively easy to manipulate using just a single hand, then you'll surely appreciate what the upcoming Sony Xperia XA2 will offer. The front camera, though, sees the addition of a wider 120-degree sensor, which should be able to squeeze in more faces into the composition. Xperia XA2 is composed of anodised aluminium on the sides, with a diamond-cut finish on the top and bottom, accentuating the industrial beauty of metal.

Sony has not yet revealed pricing details for the smartphones.

There's also a rear mounted fingerprint scanner, NFC and a sizable 3,580mAh battery. The device runs Android 8.0 Oreo operating system and is powered by a 2.2GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 processor.

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 23-megapixel Sony Exmor RS rear camera is complemented by dual front-facing cameras, one with an 8-megapixel 120° wide-angle lens and a second with a 16-megapixel sensor and optical image stabilization. Both screens are with Full HD resolution, which should be satisfying for most needs.

On the camera front, both the XA2 and XA2 Ultra come with a 23-mp primary camera lens. The device sports a 13MP rear camera with LED flash and an 8MP front shooter for selfies.

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. Whereas, the Xperia XA2 will allegedly feature a 5-inch display.

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.

It has a larger battery at 3,850mAh, 4GB of RAM and up to 64GB of internal storage with microSD expansion as well.

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. Powering the XA2 is a 3,300mAh battery which 1,000mAh more than last year's Xperia XA1.

"As stated by Sony, the Xperia L2's expansive 5.5" HD screen is great for enjoying video, browsing and social networks on the go.

Xperia L2 will launch in Single SIM and Dual SIM in select markets, in three colours: Black, Gold and Pink - each rendered with reflective surfaces, emphasising the "loop surface" design, and unlocking is made easy with a single touch via the rear fingerprint sensor. Quick Charge is supported by both new phones, for a nippy recharge.

Sony Xperia L2 will hit the shelves in late January.
