Sony’s Xperia XA line is still fairly young, with two generations of devices behind its back. It usually introduces a pair of devices — a “regular-sized” XA and phablet-grade XA Ultra. They are midrange handsets with super-thin side bezels, but still hefty chin and forehead, and are geared towards selfie-loving camera users, with high-res front and back cameras and LED flashes for both.
With the Xperia XA1 and XA1 Ultra soon to be a year old, odds are good that Sony will be introducing a new pair soon. And a supposed leak has showed us just what the Xperia XA2 and XA2 Ultra might look like just a couple of days ago — same razor-thin side bezels, same chin and forehead.
Now, serial leakster @OnLeaks, who happens to have a pretty good track record on this type of leaks, has tweeted rendered images, which are allegedly based on leaked dimensions, which website Tiger Mobiles somehow got a hold of. We see the rear-mounted fingerprint scanner re-iterated — this would be a first for Sony, who has been putting the biometric reader on the side of its phones up until now and could possibly mean that US-bound Xperias might finally get fingerprint scanners. We also get to see that the shape hasn’t evolved much beyond having a slightly arched back — this could be great for ergonomics on a huge device like the XA2 Ultra.
Other than that, we still don’t have much on any potential specs besides an earlier leak regarding the Xperia XA2 Ultra — 6-inch 1080 x 1920 display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 SoC, 4 GB of RAM, 64 GB of storage, a 21 MP main camera and a mysterious dual selfie camera. The regular Xperia XA2 will likely have lower-tier specs, but we have nothing on them yet.
