Sony is always believed to be a quality brand that manufacturers good smartphones. However, they have been criticized for not upgrading the designs of their handsets. The Japanese technology giant usually always ends up sticking to a standard pattern, which goes on for years. Despite this, customers continue to purchase their products in hopes of being provided with a fresh and likable change.
According to the latest report by Gadgets 360, the company is apparently planning on launching a new range of mid-tier smartphones, namely: Xperia XA2, Xperia XA2 Ultra, and Xperia L2. These handsets will be serving as successors to last year’s Xperia XA, Xperia XA Ultra, and Xperia L1. The smartphones are expected to be unveiled at the official CES event next week. There are chances that the firm might choose to launch it at next month’s Mobile World Congress as well.
Apart from this, Sony’s highly-speculated mid-range duo, i.e. Xperia XA2 and Xperia XA2 Ultra were spotted on benchmarking website, GFX Bench with model numbers, H4133 and H4233 respectively. Thanks to this spotting, the fans now know a lot about the upcoming smartphones. The information provided on GFX Bench suggests that the devices will be powered by 2.2GHz Qualcomm processor.
Previously, it was believed that the smartphone would be powered by a MediaTek system-on-chip. In addition to this, the handsets will also come powered by Qualcomm’s Adreno 508 GPU. On the storage front, the smartphones are expected to launch in two variants: 3GB RAM/32GB in-built storage as well as 4GB RAM/63GB in-built storage variant. Both of these smartphones will run on Android Oreo 8.0 operating systems.
Display wise, the Xperia XA2 will pack a 5.2-inch full HD display with 1080 x 1920 pixels resolution, meanwhile, the Xperia XA2 Ultra will pack a 6-inch full HD display with 1080 x 1920 pixels resolution. Additional information regarding the matter will be available with time. Readers are advised to note that Sony hasn’t confirmed any of the above-given news as of yet.
