Sony Xperia XA1 and Xperia XA1 Ultra were both announced last February at Mobile World Congress 2017. The XA1 made its way to Videotron in May, and the XA1 Ultra eventually found its way to Freedom Mobile and Videotron in July after quite a long delay.

This year, Sony unveiled the newest members of the XA lineup at CES 2018. Both are expected to launch during this year's Mobile World Congress, which starts on February 26th. Though there are also rumors of a February 18th launch in the US. Shoppers in the US and Canada can already place pre-orders through BestBuy. Hopefully both will also be available for purchased on Sony's Canadian website next month, or through some Canadian carriers without a long delay this year.

This year's models are mirror images of what we have seen from Sony Xperia's line before. However there is a new rear-facing fingerprint scanner, and a new strong metal design. Thanks Sony!

At CES, Sony also announced the Xperia L2, however, this model does not currently appear on Sony Canada's website so it is unclear if it will be available to Canadians or not. We will be sure to share any updates on the L2 if they become available.

Key Features:

  • Capture Life's Beauty - Take your best shots yet. The XA2's 23MP camera features an Exmor RS™ for mobile sensor and 4K video recording to give you outstanding colour and clarity, even in lowlight. The XA2 Ultra model also has dual selfie cameras; a 16MP camera for low light images and an 8MP camera for super wide group selfies.

  • Designed to Fit Your Hand - The Xperia XA2 has a 5.2” full HD display with a borderless design, taking the screen right to the edge, and a perfect fit for your hand. The Xperia XA2 Ultra model offers an immersive experience for all your entertainment needs, so you can lose yourself in a huge 6” full HD screen.

  • Beautiful Yet Tough Design - The durable Corning® Gorilla® Glass display and metallic back panel create a design that’s both durable and easy on the eye. An integrated fingerprint sensor unlocks your phone instantly at your touch.

  • A battery that’s built to last - Get more from your Xperia XA2 Ultra with a high-capacity 3,580 mAh battery. And the Xperia XA2 model has a 3,300 mAh battery. Smart charging technologies in both help keep your battery healthier for the long term.
