Sony Xperia XA2 design

Sony is pretty much a traditionalist when it comes to design. Each new iteration of its smartphones has a minor update in looks — just enough to make it look modern, but still hold a classic spirit. The new XA phones are no exception. There is no 18:9 display here, no wild, futuristic endevours. Just the well-known rectangle.

Sony Xperia XA2 hands on

The XA phones have always been midrangers. The Sony Xperia XA2 and XA2 Ultra are both powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 — an octa-core SoC, capable of clock speeds up to 2.2 GHz. The regular XA2 has 3 GB of RAM, while the Ultra bumps it up to 4 GB. The smaller phone only has 32 GB of storage, while its bigger sibling will also comes in a 64 GB variant, but both will support storage enhancement via microSD card.

Sony Xperia XA2 Battery

Both handsets have pretty respectable batteries — 3,300 mAh on the Xpera XA2 and 3,580 mAh on the Xperia XA2 Ultra. Sony has a Battery Care suite and Qnovo Adaptive Charging working in the back to ensure fast charge times and the prolonged health of the battery.

Sony Xperia XA2 audio

The Xperia XA2 and XA2 Ultra also come with SmartAmp — a sound-enhancing feature, which should improve the tunes coming from the phones speakers. However, there are still no stereo speakers on board, despite the phone’s design making it look so.

Both the XA2 and the XA2 Ultra will be launching at the start of February. The “regular” Xperia XA2 will be available in Silver, Black, Blue, and Pink, while the XA2 Ultra will come in Silver, Black, Blue, and Gold. Pricing is still unknown and will be announced on a per-market basis as the launch date nears. In past years, the smaller XA was around the $300 mark, while the XA Ultra would go up to $370 or so.

Asus ZenFone 4
The new ASUS ZenFone 4 smartphone comes with a Snapdragon 660, 6 GB of RAM and a 3,300 mAh battery. But the highlight of the device is most definitely its rear cameras: 12 MP shooter with optical iamge stabilization and PDAF, and a second 8-megapixels wide angle sensor.

ZenFone 4, it comes in two variants: a Snapdragon 630 one and a Snapdragon 660 one, with up to 6 GB of RAM and a 3,300 mAh battery. The display is almost the same as the one in the 4 Pro, except it’s an LCD panel instead of an AMOLED one.
