Sony Xperia XA2 Ultra Started Shipping
Sony is in the smartphones business for strategic reasons only. Yes, the company has confirmed this a few months back. But this doesn’t mean it shouldn’t come with attractive models anymore. Vice versa, it remains in the market to monitor what’s happening and be able to provide corresponding components such as displays, camera sensors, and so on. That’s why we are waiting for the best display panels and camera modules to come our way from the Japanese tech giant. The first move in this direction was the Sony Xperia XA2 Ultra launched a couple of months ago. It’s the first phone of the company to sport a full-screen with a trendy 18:9 aspect ratio. It’s gone on sale on March 6. And today, it started shipping.
This phone has grabbed our attention due to a few features. First, it’s the first to retain the Xperia-series’ tough design and to come in with narrowed borders. So those who have been using Sony phones for a while should be shocked a little. Moreover, there are four color options you can choose from – black, gold, blue, and silver.
As for the hardware, the Sony Xperia XA2 Ultra is packed with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 chip, which is accompanied by a 4GB of RAM and 64GB of native storage. Apart from this, there is a 3430mAh battery. Thus it’s a regular mid-ranger. But this is a Sony phone, which means there should be a trick concerning its shooting performance. Fortunately, there is. The phone is packed with a dual-camera on the front. It uses a 16MP sensor supporting optical image stabilization, while the second lens comes with an 8MP wide-angle sensor. Actually, there is no linkage between these cameras. Finally, on the back, it carries a single camera with a 23MP sensor that supports 4K video recording.
As you remember, the Sony Xperia XA2 Ultra has gone on sale at price tag of 2999 yuan ($474). This is an affordable price tag for a selfie-centric smartphone carrying a top brand. But we should also remember the best models in this market belong to Xiaomi. It’s an absolute leader when it comes to the price-over-hardware ratio.
