CES 2018: Sony unveils new super mid-range smartphones.

Sony has unveiled thee new smartphones at CES 2018, which is being held in Las Vegas, Nevada. The devices unveiled include the Sony Xperia XA2, Xperia XA2 Ultra, and the Xperia L2. According to Sony, the new devices have been dubbed as “super mid-range” smartphones.

“Our super mid-range product strategy started out as an exciting new idea based on bringing bold technologies to this section of the market in the most accessible way possible,” said Hideyuki Furumi, EVP, Global Sales & Marketing, at Sony Mobile Communications.

“Xperia XA2 and XA2 Ultra are no different, with leading front camera technology first seen in our flagship XZ line. We’re targeting 2018 as a breakthrough year, and look forward to showcasing further innovations across the entire Xperia portfolio over the coming months.”

As revealed by Sony, the official specifications for the devices are as follows:

Xperia XA2
Xperia XA2’s 23MP rear camera packs Sony’s large 1/2.3” Exmor RS for mobile image sensor, with ISO 12800 sensitivity for clear low-light photography.

It features 4K movie recording, allowing you to create with colour and clarity – 120fps slow-motion video capture is also included for dramatising action and movement. There’s a 120° super wide-angle 8MP camera up front, so you can fit more of your friends and surroundings into selfies.

The 5.2” Full HD display is brighter, sharper and more colourful – it sits within a borderless design, taking the screen right to the edge. And it’s built to last with strong and durable Corning Gorilla Glass.

Unlocking is made easy with the one-touch rear fingerprint sensor – integrated into the smooth metallic back panel. Xperia XA2 is composed of anodised aluminium on the sides, with a diamond-cut finish on the top and bottom, accentuating the industrial beauty of metal. It represents an evolution of the recognisable Xperia “loop surface” form, with smooth screen curvature and a symmetrical layout for a sleek look and comfortable feel.

The 3,300 mAh battery and the Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 Mobile Platform means you can do more of what you love for longer with smooth and speedy performance. And, even more Sony smart charging technologies; Smart Stamina extend usage during the day, with Battery Care and Qnovo Adaptive Charging ensuring the battery stays healthy over time. Quick charging is also supported to give you hours of power with just minutes of charging (requires Quick Charger UCH12W).

The Xperia XA2 will be available in Single SIM and Dual SIM in select markets, in four fresh colours: Silver, Black, Blue and Pink.

Xperia XA2
Engineered specifically for selfies, according to Sony, the Xperia XA2 Ultra features 16MP with Optical Image Stabilisation and 8MP 120° super wide-angle dual front cameras, both with front flash.

With the same 23MP rear camera module as Xperia XA2, the large 1/2.3” Exmor RS for mobile sensor is capable of ISO 12800 sensitivity for better low-light photography – and the 4K movie recording and 120fps slow-motion video capture features allow you to preserve memories and magnify moments.

It features Sony’s 6” Full HD smartphone display, with a wide and accurate colour gamut – built with strong and durable Corning Gorilla Glass. It sits within a borderless design; hardware so immersive, the screen becomes indistinguishable from the experience.

Just as with Xperia XA2, unlocking is made easy with the one-touch rear fingerprint sensor. The “loop surface” design is also composed of anodized aluminium on the sides, with the same recognisable diamond-cut finish on the top and bottom.

The 3,580 mAh battery means you can use the device for longer, and intuitive Sony smart charging technologies regulate and analyse power consumption and charging cycles, so it lasts and stays healthy over time – and the Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 Mobile Platform, according to Sony, ensures performance is seamless and multitasking is made easy. Quick charging is also supported for hours of power in just minutes of charging (requires Quick Charger UCH12W).

Xperia XA2 Ultra will be available in Single SIM and Dual SIM in select markets, in four contemporary colours: Silver, Black, Blue and Gold.

Xperia L2
As stated by Sony, the Xperia L2’s expansive 5.5” HD screen is great for enjoying video, browsing and social networks on the go. The 3,300 mAh battery means you can do more of what you love for longer, and intuitive Xperia smart charging technologies ensure the battery stays healthy during its lifespan.

The 120° super wide-angle 8MP front camera is built for selfies, with its 13MP F2.0 rear camera ensuring clear and crisp mobile photography.

Xperia L2 will launch in Single SIM and Dual SIM in select markets, in three colours: Black, Gold and Pink – each rendered with reflective surfaces, emphasising the “loop surface” design, and unlocking is made easy with a single touch via the rear fingerprint sensor.
