CES doesn’t get much love from mobile phones; many companies prefer to wait a month until the mobile-centric MWC.
However, Sony has announced their new mid-range devices the Xperia XA2 and XA2 Ultra.
The Xperia XA2 comes with one of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 630 chipsets and 3GB of RAM, a 5.2-inch, 1080p display and comes with Android 8.0
The XA2 Ultra follows the familiar trend of a larger format version device, but this also bumps up the specification too. It uses the same Snapdragon 630 chipset as the regular XA2 but instead pairs it with 4GB of RAM, either 32GB or 64GB of internal storage and. The screen is bumped up to a 6-inch, full HD screen.
The normal XA2 comes with an impressive camera with 23-megapixel sensors with hybrid autofocus and support for 4K video recording plus 120-fps slow-motion shooting. The front-facing camera is an 8-megapixel wide-angle camera with a 120-degree wide-angle lens just for good measure.
The Ultra uses the same rear camera, but then two front-facing cameras: the 8-megapixel wide-angle camera the XA2 uses, plus a 16-megapixel sensor with optical image stabilisation
Both phones should launch later this month, but no word on pricing or UK availability just yet.
