With this being a US-specific issue, with all three of these new phones including more prominently-positioned fingerprint sensors, and with Sony confirming they will be released in the USA, there was an obvious question which needed to be asked - would the fingerprint features be enabled on the Xperia XA2, the Xperia XA2 Ultra, and the Xperia L2 in the US? And depending on the market, the Sony Xperia XA2 will be available in either single or dual-SIM configurations, which will make it especially useful for those who are constantly hopping from one place to another. The device runs Android 8.0 Oreo operating system and is powered by a 2.2GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 processor. Sony has bumped RAM up to 3GB and doubled the storage to 32GB, so the L2 has nothing to be ashamed of in those departments.
As above, Sony has advised only the XA2 is heading to Australia, though if they change their minds we'll be sure to let you know.
While there are a lot of similarities, there are a fair few differences too. Up front, the Android phone has an 8 megapixel camera for taking selfies, and a 5.2 inch borderless display.
When we jump over to look at the L2, we again see numerous same features, only pared back a bit. Around front is a 120-degree wide-angle camera with a resolution of 8 megapixels.

In terms of the RAM and storage , the HP Chromebook 11 G6 EE will be offered with upto 8GB of RAM and upto 64GB of storage . Other connectivity options include 2 USB 3.0 ports, Bluetooth 4.2, and 2x2 MIMO 802.11ac Wi-Fi connectivity.
Finally, the Xperia L2 is a slightly more entry-level phone compared to the XA2 duo. All phones have USB Type-C port for charging, "loop surface" design, rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, and 3.5mm headphone jack. Meanwhile the Xperia XA2 Ultra comes in silver, black, blue and gold. The battery is a 3,300mAh unit with fast-charging capabilities for quick power top-ups.
This model is very similar to the standard Xperia XA2, boasting the same 23-megapixel rear camera.
Sony is kicking off the year with revamps to its low and mid-range Xperia lineups.

The Mirage Camera includes 16GB of built-in storage and can be expanded with up to 128GB of additional storage via a microSD card. Lenovo's Mirage Camera features two 13 megapixel fisheye lenses that are touted as providing over twice the resolution of 360.
"As stated by Sony, the Xperia L2's expansive 5.5" HD screen is great for enjoying video, browsing and social networks on the go. It is available in three colors, namely gold, black, and pink.
Over at the rear, it also gets a 23MP main camera that can do 4K videos plus a fingerprint sensor which unlocks on a single touch. Both screens are with Full HD resolution, which should be satisfying for most needs.
The smartphones are expected to launch soon, with the Xperia L2 coming in late January and the Xperia XA2 and XA2 Ultra coming in February.
Equipped with a Snapdragon 630 chip and 3GB of RAM, the device also comes with 32 GB of internal storage which is expandable to 256 GB with a microSD card providing adequate storage for high-resolution photos and videos.
