Sony announces Xperia XA2 Plus, a new mid-range premium model
Sony is still launching new models of Xperia smartphones, despite the fact that they fail to get into the global sales charts. The XA2 series debuted earlier this year on the mid-range premium segment with the XA2 and XA2 Ultra models, and is now receiving a new member, the new XA2 Plus, a smartphone that comes somewhere halfway between the two already launched devices, with a series of news
Probably the biggest advantage of the XA2 Plus over the previous models is the 18: 9 format display, the first model outside the Sony XZ series equipped with this. It measures 6 "diagonally and displays 2,120 x 1,080 pixels, something quite common between premium smartphones in recent years. Unfortunately, the fact that the display is higher does not provide even thin margins around it, with Sony still holding large spaces above and below the display.
The aluminum construction has been preserved from past XA2 variants, the Plus model being delivered in a unibody body with a single camera on the back. This is comparable to the XA2 Ultra with a 23 megapixel sensor and 4K resolution capability
Inside, XA2 Plus boasts a Snapdragon 630 chipset, configurations with 4 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage, or 6 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage, a 3.580 mAh battery with QuickCHarge 3.0 and an advanced audio system. The new Xperia is compatible with Hi-Res Audio formats thanks to a LDAC5 digital amplifier and a DSEE HX sound processor that can enhance the quality of the music in the usual format. Last but not least, we are dealing with a Bluetooth antenna 5 compatible with Qualcomm's aptX audio standard. Of course, the phone also has an audio jack
At 205 grams, the Xperia XA2 Plus is not an easy model at all, and the 6 "display with a protruding frame is neither small. Of course, Sony relies on brand fans for selling this model, which have not completely disappeared, but with the prices that the company has been doing lately, it's far from being a mass market product. The launch will take place in August, with single and dual-SIM models ready
