Sony's mid-range line-up of smartphones has grown by two with the announcement of the Xperia XA2 and Xperia XA2 Ultra.

The Sony Xperia XA2 has a 23Mp rear camera that features Sony's large 1/2.3” Exmor RS sensor and an ISO range which reaches 12800. 4K movie recording is built in along with the option to capture 120fps slow-motion video. On the front of the smartphone is a super wide-angle 8Mp camera and the 5.2” Full HD display is borderless and is constructed from Corning Gorilla Glass.

Powered by a 3,300 mAh battery and the Qualcomm SnapdragonTM 630 Mobile Platform, performance should be smooth and quick. Plus, Smart Stamina extends 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 borderless screen is 6" in size and is built from Corning Gorilla Glass and as with the Xperia XA2, you unlock the phone via the rear fingerprint sensor.
