Moving on, the Sony Xperia XA2, which will be the third iteration in the XA series, has already visited GFXBench, revealing its entire specs sheet. The device was first mentioned back in August previous year and it is said to come with a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner. The top and bottom speakers out front are also visible as are the volume controls plus the power button on the right, Sony may have skipped the fingerprint sensor, which was earlier seen on the power button.
Sony has been criticised for not upgrading the design on its smartphones and a new leak of its 2018 lineup in the entry-level and mid-range segment suggests the criticism has gone unheard.
Based on the leaks, the 5.2-inch Xperia XA2 will be slightly larger than the original 5-inch XA, and it's getting full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution. It will also come with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. In terms of software, the Xperia L2 will ship with the older Android Nougat OS out of the box instead of 8.0 Oreo on the Xperia XA2 duo. It's also getting an updated 21-megapixel rear camera that's 4K-capable and a 7-megapixel front camera. There is not so much difference in the design department.
The biggest change to these mid-range models appears to be their transition from Mediatek systems-on-chip to Qualcomm Snapdragon 630s (2.2GHz octa core). The design of Xperia L2 is inspired from current gen Xperia smartphones.
In addition, it and the palm-stretching XA2 Ultra will receive a boost in camera optics quality, with each boasting a 21MP rear sensor that's capable of 4K video capture, but only the XA2 will get a 7MP selfie camera.
On the specifications front, little is known about the smartphone.
The Xperia XA2 will feature a 5.2-inch FHD 1080p display, an upgrade from last year's 5.0-inch 720p screen for XA1.
