Sony is all set to launch the next version of its mid-range smartphones called the Xperia XA2, Xperia XA2 Ultra, and the low-end Xperia L2.

There's speculation that Sony will unveil the new smartphones at the 2018 Consumer Electronics Show at CES next week, but there's also chance they won't see the light of day until February, at Mobile World Congress 2018 in Barcelona.

According to sources, the upcoming Xperia XA2, XA2 Ultra and L2 are going to use an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 instead of MediaTek processors.

Sony's L2 remains more mysterious, but VentureBeat has photos that it says are the new model.

Thanks to the previous sightings on GFXBench, we already have a fair idea of what to expect from Xperia XA2 and XA2 Ultra in terms of the specifications. And whereas the Xperia XA1 has a 5.0-inch, 720 x 1280 display, the 5.2-inch XA2 (pictured above and below) looks to offer the same full HD, 1080 x 1920 resolution as the larger 6.0-inch XA2 Ultra (whose display characteristics are remaining unchanged, year-to-year). Sony is reportedly preparing to announce the Xperia XA2, Xperia XA2 Ultra, and Xperia L2.

The most interesting change sees Sony drop its long-running power button fingerprint sensor for a circular rear scanner under the camera lens. The Xperia XA2 will come with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage, while the Xperia XA2 Ultra will be backed by a 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage.

Xperia XA2 is further expected to include a 21-megapixel sensor at the rear camera - which will be capable of capturing 4K videos, while on the front, the phone may include a mediocre 8-megapixel camera.

This is pretty much a first from Sony and we can also add dual cameras to that list. The XA2 will be equipped with a 21MP, 4K-capable rear camera and 7MP front-facing selfie camera.
