Sony has published an official hands on video which highlights the main features of its three new smartphones showcased at CES 2018: Sony Xperia XA2, XA2 Ultra, and Xperia L2. The video shows the design of each phone in a detailed way, highlighting the absence of side bezels on the XA2 series and the fingerprint reader placed on the back, for the first time in the XA series. The video has also a special focus on the camera performances of the three devices in normal photos, videos, and selfies.

According to the video, Sony Xperia XA2, XA2 Ultra and Xperia L2 are a big step forward if we compare them with their predecessors launched in 2017. Sony Xperia XA2 has a 5.2-inch display with a much higher screen-to-body ratio than XA1, but still with a 16:9 aspect ratio. The resolution is Full HD with 1080 x 1920 pixels. Sony has finally switched from MediaTek to Qualcomm SoCs for its midrangers: this handset sports a nice octa-core Snapdragon 630 SoC, paired with 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal storage which you can expand with a micro SD.

The primary camera is a 23 MP resolution shooter and it can record 4K videos, while the secondary sensor has an 8 MP resolution. The battery has a 3300 mAh capacity, while the operating system installed is Android Oreo. Sony Xperia XA2 Ultra distinguishes from the standard version with the presence of a bigger display (6 inches FHD), more RAM (4 GB), a dual selfie camera (16 + 8 MP wide angle) and a bigger battery (3580 mAh). At last Sony Xperia L2 will be the cheapest one, but it is still a phablet with a 5.5-inch HD display. This handset sports a low-end quad-core MediaTek MT6737T processor, but it has 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB ROM like the XA1. The cameras have 13 and 8 MP resolutions (rear and front respectively), while the battery has a 3300 mAh capacity.
