Sony says the L2 will ship with Nougat later this month.

The third and final device is the Sony Xperia L2, which has a mid-sized 5.5-inch screen - albeit with a lower HD resolution.

While it indeed shares the same distinctive design language that has become synonymous with Sony's smartphones, like how it features flat top and bottom edges and those rounded edges along its left and right edges, the phone is very different under the hood. Sony fit a 3,300 mAh battery that is 40 percent larger than before. Both the Xperia XA2 and XA2 Ultra will launch in February 2018 with Silver, Black, Blue, Gold, and Pink color options, depending on the model.

"Our super mid-range product strategy started out as an exciting new idea based on bringing bold technologies to this section of the market in the most accessible way possible", said Ciaran Cleary from Sony Mobile Ireland.

While Xperia A2 has an 8-megapixel selfie-camera, Xperia XA2 Ultra features a 16-megapixel optical image stabilisation and another 8-megapixel sensor with 120-degree wide-angle lens.

Sadly, the Xperia XA2's 5.2-inch screen is only Full HD resolution - so you won't be able to view your 4K video on the phone in its native quality.

Cameras - the XA2 and the XA2 Ultra have the 23MP, f/2.0 primary cam from the last generation. On the front both smartphones have an 8MP ultra wide fixed-focus camera to get all your friends in the frame.

Both smartphones are powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 processor clocked at 2.2GHz coupled with Adreno 308 GPU. Colours for the Xperia XA2 Ultra are Silver, Black, Blue and Gold. Other differences include a 6-inch 1080p display, 4GB of RAM, 32GB/64GB of storage, and a 3580mAh battery. The report highlights that the device will come with a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor.

The Xperia XA2 and Xperia XA2 Ultra are the successors of last year's launches Xperia XA1 and Xperia XA1 Ultra, while the Xperia L2 is a budget phone with 3 GB RAM and 5.5-inch display. The 3,300 mAh battery means you can do more of what you love for longer, and intuitive Xperia smart charging technologies ensure the battery stays healthy during its lifespan.

Imaging is handled by the rear 23-megapixel camera and the front 8-megapixel sensor.

Yes, is the simple answer to that question as a Sony representative has confirmed to AndroidHeadlines that when these three devices arrive in the U.S., they will arrive with fully-working and usable fingerprint sensors. No word on fast charging here, though.

Lastly, the Xperia L2 is the baby of the bunch.

Three has also confirmed it will be stocking the XA2 but will announce pricing and availability at a later date.

Sony Xperia XA2 and Xperia L2 are more alike on the selfie front.
