Leak Reveals Specs of the Sony Xperia XA2, XA2 Ultra, and L2
Sony has a number of mid-range smartphones at different price points, and folks who prefer the company’s affordable offerings are likely familiar with the Sony Xperia XA series, which launched in June 2016, and the Sony Xperia XA1, which hit stores shelves in in April 2017. On Thursday, a new leak revealed details about their successors: The Sony Xperia XA2, XA2 Ultra, and L2.
This leak mainly focuses on the details of the XA2 and XA2 Ultra, since the source, Evan Blass, says that less is known about the upcoming Sony Xperia L2.
First up is the Sony Xperia XA1, the flagship entry in the series. We’re looking at a device that will be made available in at least four different colors, and that features a 5.2-inch 1080p display. That’s an upgrade from the Sony Xperia XA1’s 5-inch 720p display.
The Sony Xperia XA2 Ultra, on the other hand, will reportedly retain its predecessor’s 6-inch 1080p display.
The leak also indicates that the memory configurations of the Sony Xperia XA2 and the XA2 Ultra will remain unchanged at 3GB/4GB of RAM and 32GB/64GB of storage.
Both devices are getting better cameras and system-on-chips, however. The Sony XA2 is rumored to get a 21MP rear-facing camera paired with a 7MP front-facing camera, and the Xperia XA2 Ultra will reportedly have a 21MP rear camera along with a pair of 15MP front-facing cameras. And both will pack Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 630, a transition away from the MediaTek processors in last year’s mid-range Xperia phones.
The Sony Xperia L2, for its part, is said to have a 5.2″ 720p display and run Android Nougat.
There’s speculation that Sony will unveil the new smartphones at the 2018 Consumer Electronics Show at CES next week, but there’s also chance they won’t see the light of day until February, at Mobile World Congress 2018 in Barcelona.
