Sony Xperia XA2 Ultra New Smartphone!

Sony Xperia XA2 Ultra is a new large Sony smartphone. It got announced by Sony here in January 2018.

Main specs: 6.0 inch Display, IPS LCD type, 1080×1920 pixels screen, Android 8.0 Oreo, Snapdragon 630 Chipset, Adreno 510 GPU, 23MP Primary camera, Dual secondary camera with 16MP + 8MP sensors, Bluetooth 5.0, Fingerprint reader, microSD card up to 256GB, 32/64GB Internal storage, 4GB of RAM and 3580mAh Battery!

First thing you can detect is that it comes with a bit larger battery and display compared to Sony Xperia XA2. The display difference is actually very big. 5.2″ on standard and here 6″ on larger. Very nice that they created a larger distance. So it’s not just a tiny difference. I don’t like when companies make phones that are too similar.

The colours it comes in are Silver, Black, Blue and Gold. With music you even get 3.5mm audio jack.

If we dive deeper into camera specs then first on rear shooter you get: F/2.0 aperture, 24mm, 1/2.3″. phase detection, autofocus and LED flash. The front camera has: F/2.0 aperture, 23mm, 1/2.6″, OIS and AF!

GPS is on-board with A-GPS and GLONASS support! Which gives you access to more satellites. NFC you get inside to be able to do mobile payments. Which is becoming more common these days.

The browser it’s using is all based on HTML5. Which is a great new framework to use to build websites. Many new services online are starting to use HTML5 video players which plays very smoothly inside your browser.

I wish there was an option to remove the battery. But that is a feature that Sony stays away from. Not quite sure why. I believe they can sell many more devices if they had a removable battery option. Since battery is a big issue for most phones when they go faulty.

This phone has very heavy weight with 221 grams and thickness is 9.5mm. So not the easiest phone to carry around.

Sony Xperia L2 New Smartphone!

Sony Xperia L2 is a new smartphone that comes in with lower specs. Great for someone buying their first Android smartphone! Let’s dive into what you get.

Main specs: 5.5 inch Display, 720×1280 pixels screen, IPS LCD Type, Android 7.1.1 Nougat, MediaTek MT6737T Chipset, Quad-core processor clocked at 1.5GHz Cortex A-53 cores, Mali-T720MP2 GPU, microSD card up to 256GB, 32GB Internal storage, 3GB of RAM, 13MP Main camera, 8MP Secondary camera, 3.5mm Audio jack and 3300mAh Battery!

Even though this is a low-end Android device you still get quad-core inside. Since quad-core is going down in price. I like how you can expand storage to massive 256GB. In a few years storage won’t be a problem. The Mali GPU inside the phone will provide you with great gaming experience.

This phone comes with Type-C USB connector. It also has FM radio on board. I really like in terms of design how it seems like Sony is switching it up again. The rear fingerprint design looks perfectly aligned with rear camera. And it won’t create confusion as on Galaxy S8.

There is Dual SIM option available for multiple SIM cards at the same time. The weight is pretty heavy 178 grams. In thickness it is 9.8mm. It even gives you 4G LTE data speeds.

I really hope this phone will be getting an update to Android 8.0 Oreo like other Sony phones. The Bluetooth is still the old version 4.2. Main specs on the rear camera is: F/2.2 aperture, autofocus and LED flash.

I would prefer if you would be able to remove the battery. I hope smartphone companies bring this back to phones. Back in the days all low-end phones had that option. It’s great when you need to replace it. Instead of buying a completely new phone you just many times can replace the old battery.

Sony Xperia XA2 New Smartphone!

Today Sony unveiled some new smartphones. One of them is being called Sony Xperia XA2! Let’s inspect what it offers to you.

Main specs: 5.2 inches Display, IPS LCD Type, Android 8.0 Oreo, Snapdragon 630 Chipset, Adreno 510 GPU, microSD card extend up to 256GB, 32GB Internal storage, 3GB of RAM, 23MP Main camera, 8MP Secondary camera, 3.5mm Audio jack, 3300mAh Battery and 4G connectivity!

This is a mobile that comes with same battery size as Galaxy Note 8 if I remember correctly. It has a fingerprint sensor on the rear side just as Huawei does with their Mate 9 smartphone. You also get the latest Bluetooth 5.0 which has better support for wireless audio.

It’s using Type-C for charging. Doesn’t look like it has an IP rating. This has always been confusing with Sony phones sometimes they have it and sometimes they don’t. The colours it comes in are Silver, Black, Blue and Pink.

The deeper specs on the main camera is: F/2.0 aperture, 1/2.3″, phase detection, autofocus and LED flash. Specs on front facing camera are: F/2.0 aperture, 23mm, 1/4″, autofocus and 1080p video.

Pretty standard camera specs. I hope this phone comes in at an affordable price range. Other stuff you can do is record panorama, HDR modes available, Touch focus and smile detection.

The browser is using HTML5 technology. This is perfect since many new websites are starting to enable HTML5 video players. Which usually performs amazing and loads video faster. The weight of the phone is 171 grams. The thickness is a bit too thick it comes in at 9.7mm. I would prefer to see 8mm phone especially at this battery size.

It’s not a full all-screen display like Galaxy S8 but we are getting there slowly. We have rumors we will see a phone with all-screen display from Sony in 2018.

Sony Xperia 10 New Smartphone Concept!

Sony Xperia 10 is a new smartphone concept that comes with a super cool design! This was a concept that I discovered on It’s made by PHconcept!

This concept comes with an all-screen display. The display is massive and it looks like it’s above 6.5″ in display size. It’s imagined with a 4K pixel screen. It comes with a dual camera on the rear side. This phone seem super slim so the battery will probably not be that huge. But maybe it’s imagined with some new battery tech that charge faster and has higher capacity. It looks like it comes with an all aluminium unibody. The screen on front doesn’t have any room for front facing camera or Face ID scanner.

I would love to see the specs of 256GB internal storage, 8GB of RAM, Snapdragon 845 chipset and 5000mAh battery. Bluetooth 5.0 on board for wireless audio with the new codecs.

Hopefully the dual camera can be at least 20.0MP + 20.0MP lens. I would love to see a fingerprint sensor on the back. But I would like the box to be a square and not a round circle. Square design fits more this phone. It does look like this phone would be hard to hold in hand!

This phone I really think it could be around 7mm in thickness. To be able to compete against the iPhone X and Galaxy Note 8. Would also be nice if it feature an addon Sony Pen stylus to use the phone as a mini computer. I would like to see the alternative to be able to dual boot Windows 10 next to Android. And also better support for when I want to use two apps at the same time.

An IP68 certification would be great too for water resistance. So it can become more durable. Because this would probably be a premium phone for around 1000 euro. Good internal speakers would be needed for when I watch movies on the 4K screen with 18:9 aspect ratio. In charging it should support latest Quick Charge 4+.

New Sony Xperia 2018 Smartphones Leaked!

Sony’s new slim high-end device leaked in new pictures! Reminds me a little about Sony Xperia Z Ultra. Let’s take a closer look at what specs we are expecting. These are two new Sony phones with very interesting rumored designs. One looks like an iPhone X competitor.

The specs we may see here in these are 5.7″ display with 4K resolution, Snapdragon 845 Chipset, 6GB of RAM and Android 8.0 Oreo Android version.

One of these phones come with a glass back a little more rounded shape. It’s glossy on the back. The other edition has a metal back with rear fingerprint sensor. A bit like Huawei Honor 8. Both phones come with rare camera designs on rear. Both have dual sensor.

Seems like these phones will come with the new popular smartphone aspect ratio of 18:9. Just as with other Sony Xperia phones these doesn’t come with any home buttons. And it seems like they have slimmed down the top and bottom to give it a more modern look and feel. But they will probably be hard to hold Sony phones tend to be large in size. Hopefully they also come with water resistance. Sometimes Sony phones doesn’t have this feature.

It feels like Sony finally have start to got their design right. The Sony Xperia XZ was a big improvement compared to earlier designs from Sony. It’s good that they are trying out something new. I hope these phones comes with Bluetooth 5 and 3.5mm earphone jack. We know with Snapdragon 845 that they will feature latest Quick Charge 4+.

In terms of storage we will probably see 128GB. Seems like it may be the default size in phones 2018. Samsung with Galaxy S9 may also have it. Another cool thing here is how one phone here may have dual front-facing speakers. We may even see HTC quality speakers! Which would be a major improvement.
