Sony has launched the Xperia XA2 Ultra at the ongoing CES (Consumer Electronics Show) 2018 held at Las Vegas. The Japanese company has still not embraced the 18:9 aspect ratio. The XA2 Ultra sticks to the conventional 16:9 aspect ratio. It follows the design language of existing Xperia phones with thick bezels on the top and bottom of the display. With dimensions of 163 x 80 x 9.5mm and a heft of 221 grams, it certainly wouldn’t win any fitness pageants. Flanking the Sony moniker on the top are two camera sensors and the selfie LED light. The fingerprint sensor is placed on the rear. The Sony Xperia XA2 Ultra comes in Silver, Black, Blue, and Gold. It would start shipping from February, but pricing details aren’t out yet.
Coming to the display, the Xperia XA Ultra sports a 6-inch Full HD screen with 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution. It boasts of Image Enhance Technology. There’s also an unspecified version of Corning Gorilla Glass protection. The phone is powered by a 2.2 GHz Octa-Core Snapdragon 630 14nm chipset with Adreno 508 GPU. The older Xperia XA Ultra came with a MediaTek Helio P10 SoC. It is equipped with 4 GB RAM and comes with 32 GB / 64 GB internal storage options. It also offers a microSD card slot.
On the photography front, you get a 23 MP f/2.0 rear camera with 1/2.3″ Exmor RS sensor with Hybrid Autofocus and LED flash. At the front, there’s a 16 MP primary front camera with OIS (Optical Image Stabilisation) along with an 8 MP secondary camera with 120° wide-angle lens. The front camera is also accompanied by an LED flash for low-light selfies. Other features include 4G VoLTE, WiFi 802.11 ac (2.4 GHz and 5 GHz), Bluetooth 5 LE, GPS, GLONASS, NFC, and USB Type-C.
