At the Consumer Electronics Show earlier this month in Las Vegas, Sony unveiled three smartphones — Xperia XA2, XA2 Ultra, and L2. While the company had unveiled the devices, the pricing and availability information was not revealed.
Now, the company has announced that all three smartphones will go on sale in the United States from February. The Sony Xperia XA2 and Xperia XA2 Ultra will be available from February 16 while the Xperia L2 will be available from 9th February from Amazon. Later, from 4th March, the phones will also be available through BestBuy and other retailers.
In the US, the Xperia XA2 is priced at $349.99 while the XA2 Ultra is priced at $449.99 and Xperia L2 is priced at $249.99. The devices went up for pre-orders in the United States a few weeks ago.
For the Xperia XA2 series, the company has ditched MediaTek processor and has instead opted for Qualcomm‘s Snapdragon 630 chipset. While the Xperia XA2 features a 5.2-inch Full HD display, its bigger sibling XA2 Ultra comes with a 6-inch Full HD display.
The Xperia XA2 packs 3GB RAM and 32GB of internal storage with a microSD card slot for further expanding the storage capacity. On the other hand, the Xperia XA2 Ultra comes with 4GB RAM and two variants based on the internal storage — 32GB and 64GB. This one too comes with a microSD card slot for storage expansion.
Both devices feature a 23-megapixel camera sensor with f/2.0 aperture, hybrid autofocus, and support for 4K video recording and 120fps slow-motion shooting. On the front, the Xperia XA2 comes with an 8-megapixel ultra wide fixed-focus camera for taking selfies and video calling. The Xperia XA2 Ultra features a dual-camera setup on the front with an 8-megapixel camera sensor and a 16-megapixel camera sensor with less extreme FOV, 16:9 aspect ratio, autofocus, and OIS.
Running Android 8.0 Oreo operating system out-of-the-box, the XA2 is powered by a 3,300mAh battery and the XA2 Ultra is fuelled by a 3,580mAh battery with both devices supporting Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 3.0 fast charging technology.
The Sony Xperia L2 features a 5.5-inch HD display with 1280 x 720 pixels screen resolution. It is powered by a 1.5GHz quad-core MediaTek MT6737T processor, coupled with 3GB RAM and 32GB internal storage with support for expanding storage using microSD card.
There is a 13-megapixel rear camera and an 8-megapixel front-facing camera. The phone features a fingerprint sensor on the back, same as XA2-series. It runs Android 7.1 Nougat operating system and is fuelled by a 3,300mAh battery.
