Sony's mid-range phones will reportedly use Snapdragon processors this year

These are the Sony Xperia XA2, XA2 Ultra, and L2

There's speculation that Sony will introduce these new smartphones at the 2018 Consumer Electronics Show up next week, or decide to hold it off until the MWC 2018 in February.

Earlier this week, Sony Xperia L2 and XA2 image renders were made public. One can see Sony is still following its age-old loop design in these devices as well. The Xperia XA2 Ultra will sport the same 21-megapixel, 4k capable rear sensor. The XA2 will have a 7MP selfie-camera, while the XA2 Ultra will get dual 15MP front-facing cameras both of which are 4K capable. However Sony does appear to have moved the fingerprint scanner to the back panel for all three phones. It's easy to understand why the flagships remain strongly supported given their high-quality displays with almost-AMOLED color saturation levels, excellent cameras, and distinctively different design doings.

Moving on, there is a dedicated camera key on the right, while on the left, there is a SIM slot. The memory configuration remains the same, 3GB of RAM paired with 32GB of inbuilt storage. The Xperia XA2 will come with a 7-megapixel shooter for selfies and video calling.

What is certain is the processing power of the Xperia A2 Ultra, which will come from Snapdragon 830 octa-core chip, clocking in at around 2.2 gigahertz (GHz).

The upcoming XA2 is rumored to boost its screen size from five inches to 5.2-inches while maintaining its 1080p screen resolution.

Currently, more details are known about the Xperia XA2 and XA2 Ultra models. In terms of software, the Xperia L2 will ship with the older Android Nougat OS out of the box instead of 8.0 Oreo on the Xperia XA2 duo.

From the pictures, it has become painfully obvious that Sony is sticking with large bezels on top and bottom of the devices to house front camera, sensors, and the company logo.
