Sony unveiled three new selfie-centric smartphones- the Xperia XA2, the Xperia XA2 Ultra, and the Xperia L2 at the annual CES 2018 tech convention in Las Vegas. The new phones come with an impressive selection of high-end features, including 4K video capture and a dual-selfie mode.

The first new phone to be announced was the Sony Xperia XA2, which boasts a powerful 23-megapixel camera that promises “clear low-light photography”. The Xperia A2 features a 5.2-inch display with full HD (1920×1080 pixels) resolution. The Xperia A2 Ultra, on the other hand, boasts a larger 6-inch full HD display.


In terms of storage, the Xperia A2 is available only in 3GB RAM + 32GB default storage, while the Xperia A2 Ultra is available in a 3GB RAM + 32GB storage model and a 4GB RAM + 64GB storage model as well. However, both models allow storage expansion up to 256GB via microSD card.



Both the devices are powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 SoC. With a focus on selfies, the Xperia XA2 features an 8-megapixel front camera with an ultra wide fixed-focus that gives 120-degree field-of-view for enhanced group selfies. The Xperia XA2 Ultra, on the other hand, comes with a dual-camera setup on the front with the same 8-megapixel ultra wide sensor along with an additional 16-megapixel sensor.

The Xperia A2 is fueled by a 3,300mAh battery, while the Xperia A2 Ultra is powered by a 3,580mAh battery. Other features include rear fingerprint sensors, USB Type-C support, and Android 8.0 Oreo running out-of-the-box.

The third smartphone is entry-level Xperia L2. The model follows up on last year’s Xperia L1, and continues to use a 5.5-inch HD (720p) display and the same MediaTek MT6737T chipset. The smartphone comes with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage that is expandable up to 256GB via microSD card.


For optics, there’s a 13-megapixel rear camera along with an 8-megapixel ultra wide angle front sensor for 120-degree field-of-view. The Xperia L2 is fueled by a 3,300mAh battery. On the software front, it runs Android 7.1.1 Nougat out-of-the-box.
