Sony launched two mid-range smartphones earlier this year, the Xperia XA2 and XA2 Ultra. They offered a familiar Sony design with chunky bezels and mid-range specs. The latest addition to this mid-range lineup improves things in the design department. Sony today launched the Xperia XA2 Plus which features a taller 18:9 aspect ratio display.
The Xperia XA2 Plus has the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 processor as the earlier models and most of its specs are similar to the XA2 Ultra. However, it’s the first device in this lineup to feature a taller 18:9 aspect ratio 6 inch FHD+ resolution display. Sony is shipping this handset with its High-Resolution Audio technology and DSEE HX audio upscaling.
The handset will be available with 4/6GB RAM and 32/64GB eMMC storage. It features a 23 megapixel 1/2.3″ Exmor RS rear camera with 4K video recording and an 8 megapixel super wide-angle front camera. It doesn’t have the dual front camera with flash found on the XA2 Ultra. Additional features include Quick Charge 3.0, a 3,580mAh battery, a fingerprint sensor at the back, and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
Sony is going to start selling the Xperia XA2 Plus late next month and it’s yet to confirm how much the device is going to cost. It will be available in single and dual-SIM variants in black, silver, gold, and green colors.
