An intro video from the official Xperia channel on YT.
The XA2 Ultra is powered by an octa-core 2.2GHz Cortex-A53 CPU processor (the Snapdragon 630) and this makes it much more capable than its predecessor Xperia X, which was basically a 4 + 2 cores, ed. The GPU is an Adreno 508 GPU, enough to handle the workload.
For memory, there are 3 GB of RAM and 32GB of file starting with the usual microSD slot for expansion. (To verify if the Sailfish-32GB limit is still there).
The battery is a large, non-removable, from 3580 mAh. It is compatible with Quick Charging (Qualcomm® Quick Charge™ 3.0) for fast charging.
That said, Sony usually does not provide the rapid charger, and then the charge will be at normal speed.
The cameras is – as usual for Sony devices – very good, with a main-camera of 23MP f / 2.0 apertures, with 2160p / 30fps video recording.
The front camera are two, with flash: 16MP OIS + 8MP, appreciated for its 120 degrees of shooting angle. It should allow a good 1080p / 30fps video recording.
