  • Sony Xperia XA2 With 5.5-inch 1080p Display Snapdragon 630 Fingerprint Sensor Announced

The Full HD 1080p screen is created to exceed expectations for how we view content on a smartphone while it sits comfortably in your hand. Although it still has a traditional 16:9 display aspect ratio, the XA2 Ultra still offers a near borderless display with the use of thinner bezels for the edges of its display.

As the bigger brother, the Xperia XA2 Ultra features the same rear camera, but adds a dual camera setup to the front of the phone. But looking at the Xperia XA2 and XA2 Ultra, that's just fine.

The smartphone comes with a 5.2-inch Full HD display and the company has said it is brighter, sharper and more colorful.

And all three of these phones come with a "super wide-angle selfie camera" on the front, so you can fit in as many grinning faces as possible.

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".

Church will hosts MLK march, service
On Tuesday, Jan. 16, the community is invited to hear from Ed Jackson, executive architect of the Martin Luther King Jr. A "march" will begin on Monday at 11 a.m., January 15 from Kuzzins Sports Bar and Lounge, Hemlock Street, Summerville.

Its 171 gram weight is also considerably heftier than the 144 gram XA1, which is likely down to the increased battery capacity which will be covered further down this comparison. The Xperia XA2 and XA2 Ultra lack stereo speakers, but they are equipped with a sound-enhancing software called SmartAmp that improves the audio output through the speakers. The device comes with fingerprint sensor on its back side. The devices are dubbed as the Sony Xperia XA 2, Sony Xperia XA 2 Ultra and Sony Xperia L2 respectively. Final pricing is yet to be revealed.

The XA2 Ultra looks like a solid phone, especially if you're really into taking selfies.

However, The Xperia XA2 and Xperia XA2 Ultra will launch in February, the Xperia L2 will be launched in late January.

Sony's third new phone is the Xperia L2 that features a 5.5-inch FHD 1080p display. It includes a MediaTek MT6737T quad-core processor coupled with Mali-T720 GPU. It has 3 GB of RAM and an inbuilt storage of 32 GB. It is also expandable up to 256GB via microSD card. It is powered by a 3,300 mAh battery. The L2 has a rear-facing camera of 13-megapixel. The Xperia L2 is the basic of the trio, featuring a 13MP sensor with f/2.0 aperture on the back. If the phone can last two days between charges for moderate/light users, that's going to make the XA2 one of the most long-lasting phones available, especially in the middle tier. We all are. Let's get something else straight: For real selfie addicts, an iPhone won't cut it.
