Both the Sony Xperia XA2 and Sony Xperia XA2 Ultra were announced in January this, and they are already making waves in the smartphone market since then. Today, the Japanese manufacturer went a step further to unveil a mid-range phone called Sony Xperia XA2 Plus which supplements the earlier released smartphones. The phone has the same 23MP Motion Eye camera and a Snapdragon 630 chipset like its other siblings, but it is bit more comfortable due to narrower bezels and taller display. Check the video below.
Sony Xperia XA2 Plus Features
The Sony Xperia XA2 Plus is the first XA2 line up that came with a 18:9 aspect ratio. It has a 6 inches LCD display with Full HD+ resolution. The display is protected by Gorilla Glass 5.
The Snapdragon chipset of the Sony Xperia XA2 Plus houses an octa-core CPU at clocked at 2.2 GHz and an Adreno 508 GPU. The phones comes in two memory configurations; 4GB RAM + 32GB internal storage and 6GB RAM + 64GB internal storage. Both internal storage can be expanded via a microSD card slot.
The 23MP snapper of the Xperia XA2 Plus has a 1/2.3 inch Exmore RS sensor with 84-degree wide-angle lens and f/2.0 aperture. It supports ISO 12,800 and shoots videos in 4K, but also hs 120 fps slow-mo recording. At the front of the Sony Xperia XA2 Plus, you will find a single camera of 8MP 1/4 inch Exmore R sensor with a 120-degree super wide-angle lens that has an aperture of f/2.4. The camera has plenty of features which includes Bokeh Mode, Soft Skin, and some other face-altering effects.
The Sony Xperia XA2 Plus has a body dimensions of 157 x 75 x 9.6 mm and weighs 205 grams, which is a bit heavier than expected. It came with the new OmniPresence design Sony introduced at the beginning of the year 2018. The phone will definitely have a better feel due to its metallic back panel.
The Sony Xperia XA2 Plus came with a 3580mAh battery with Quick Charge 3.0 support. The charging port on the bottom is USB-C and has a noise-canceling mic and a speaker to keep it company. Don’t worry, it also came with a 3.5 mm jack on the top too.
