Sony Xperia XA2 Ultra

Earlier this year at CES (Consumer Electronics Show), Sony announced two new smartphones – Xperia XA2 and Xperia XA2 Ultra. Both smartphones are mid-rangers with virtually identical specifications, except for different screen sizes and battery capacities.

The company has now begun seeding a new update to both XA2 and XA2 Ultra. The update bumps the smartphones’ firmware identifier to 50.1.A.10.51. However, it only includes security patches for the month of July for both smartphones and doesn’t bring any new features.

As is almost always the case with over-the-air updates, the update is being rolled out gradually, so it may be a while before it hits your Xperia XA2 or XA2 Ultra.

Speaking of the two smartphones, both XA2 and XA2 Ultra are powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 SoC, paired with 3/4GB of RAM and 32/64GB of internal storage. Each of the two smartphones has a 23MP (f/2.0 aperture) rear camera. While the XA2 has a single 8MP selfie-shooter, the XA2 Ultra features dual (16MP + 8MP) cameras.

The Xperia XA2 has a 5.2-inch FullHD display and is backed by a 3,300mAh battery. On the other hand, the Xperia XA2 Ultra sports a 6-inch FullHD panel, with a 3,580mAh cell keeping the lights on.

Sony Xperia XZ2 First Impressions

Just about two weeks back, Sony launched its Xperia XZ2 flagship smartphone in India. The smartphone, which went on sale in the country last week, bears an exorbitant price tag of Rs 72,990. It’s powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 chipset, mated with 6GB of RAM. The Xperia XZ2 is a powerful shooter, capable of recording super slo-mo HD (720p) videos at 960fps.
