Sony on Tuesday took the wraps off the Xperia XA2 Ultra China edition at a ceremony held in Beijing. The Sony Xperia XA2 Ultra comes with a 2,999 Yuan (~$475) price tag. The new version is already available on Jingdong for preorders.
The Sony Xperia XA2 Ultra still features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 chipset just like the version launched at CES 2018. The chipset is paired with 4GB of RAM while there is 64GB of storage onboard. On the display screen size, the Xperia XA2 Ultra features a 6.0-inch display with the traditional 16:9 aspect ratio. The display has a full HD resolution of 1980 x 1080pixels.
Basically, the design is similar to that of its predecessor – the Xperia XA Ultra but there are a few changes like a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor and a repositioning of the rear camera. The rear camera module, which was at the top-left corner on last year’s Xperia XA Ultra, has now been moved to the centre position.
Furthermore, on the camera end, the Xperia XA Ultra features 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 device also 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 optical image stabilisation (OIS). The device also runs Android 8.0 Oreo operating system out-of-the-box but that should be with a custom skin. In addition, there is a 3,580mAh battery under the hood with support for Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 3.0 fast charging technology.
The Xperia XA2 ultra will officially go on sale from March 12 at 10 am but presale has already started on Jingdong (JD.com). Here is the product page.
