Okay, yes, 2018 has only just begun — however the idea’s not our fault that will Sony dropped some of the ugliest brand new phones on us since … their last ugly phone in 2017. According to Evan Blass (@evleaks on Twitter), Sony will be “refreshing” their low- to mid-range phones (Xperia XA1, XA Ultra, in addition to L) by debuting the Xperia XA2, XA2 Ultra, in addition to L2 at CES next week.
Blass elaborated on the leak having a post on Venturebeat. The biggest improvement to the XA2 in addition to XA2 Ultra is usually inside, where the unsightly handsets ditched Mediatek systems-on-chip in favor of Qualcomm Snapdragon 630s. The XA2’s display also grew a little, up to 5.2 inches by the 5.0-inch XA1. The XA2 will also feature the same 1080p, full HD display as the XA2 Ultra (though the Ultra includes a 6.0″ display).
The Ultra will feature 4 GB of memory in addition to 64 GB of storage, whereas the XA2 will be touting 3 GB of memory in addition to 32 GB of storage. Both ugly duckings will feature 21 MP rear cameras, however the XA2 includes just one 7 MP selfie shooter. Alternatively, the XA2 Ultra has dual 15 MP front-facing cameras. As long as you don’t get the phone from the shot, everything should look beautiful.
The L2 has largely been kept under wraps, however the idea’s too bad the same can’t be said of the XA2 in addition to XA2 Ultra’s massive bezels. However, having a boost from the quality of internals, the idea’s possible we shouldn’t judge these books by their covers. If you’ll be bringing bezels back in 2018, look out for these Xperia devices on Amazon or Best Buy as a limited Discharge from the US from the near future — at least, that will’s how the Xperia XA1 Discharge cycle panned out last year.
