A rep for Sony made it sound like this will be a turning point for the Xperia line and that fingerprint sensors will stop being disabled in the United States from here on out.
Sony states that both devices will run Android 8.0 "Oreo" when they ship in February, 2018.
At launch, Sony will offer a new leather-look Style Cover Stand allowing you to stand the phone up for video playback. The XA2 Ultra offers a little more for those looking to snap good selfies, too - both devices boast an 8MP, 120-degree wide angle front-facing camera, but in the XA2 Ultra, we also have a second 16MP sensor with optical image stabilization. Both screens are with Full HD resolution, which should be satisfying for most needs. The Xperia XA2 and Xperia XA2 Ultra are sequels to a pair of handsets that were released in the United Kingdom past year, namely the Xperia XA1 and XA1 Ultra. The device sports a 13MP rear camera with LED flash and an 8MP front shooter for selfies. The Xperia XA2 comes in Siler, Black, Blue and Pink, while the Xperia XA 2 Ultra comes in Silver, Black, Blue and Gold.
The Xperia XA2 and Xperia XA2 Ultra are the successors of last year's launches Xperia XA1 and Xperia XA1 Ultra, while the Xperia L2 is a budget phone with 3 GB RAM and 5.5-inch display.
On the other hand, the Sony Xperia XA2 Ultra sports a 6-inch full HD display with 1080x1920 pixel resolution.
Unlocking is made easy with the one-touch rear fingerprint sensor - integrated into the smooth metallic back panel.
The rivalry is intense in the mid-range selfie smartphone race, but the Japanese tech giant aims to break into the competition with its Xperia XA2, XA2 Ultra and Xperia L2 smartphones.
The fingerprint sensor button on the back of the device will work in the USA, whereas Sony previously removed this feature from Xperia phones in the region.
The Xperia L2, meanwhile, comes with a 5.5 inch screen, a large 3,300mAh battery, and a 13 megapixel rear camera.
And then there's the Xperia L2 - the unassuming entry-level Xperia, that grew out of the now defunct E-series. While the XA1 and XA1 Ultra came with small sub 3,000mAh batteries, the XA2 and XA2 Ultra are equipped with much bigger power packs - 3,300mAh and 3,580mAh respectively. As usual, Sony is still bundling its Battery Care and Qnovo Adaptive Charging for a quicker charge while preserving its overall battery lifespan. This will come in Black, Gold and Pink colour options.
Sony Xperia XA2 and Xperia L2 are more alike on the selfie front.
