It’s no secret that I’m not a big fan of Sony’s mid-range handsets. It didn’t matter if it was the budget mid-range option or their premium mid-range handset, they were never attractive from a price-to-performance perspective. But to be fair, this problem wasn’t unique to Sony’s mid-range devices because their flagships were grossly overpriced too.
That is, until they launched the Xperia XZ1. Sony’s newest 2017 flagship finally showed us that hey, maybe they’re listening after all because with that handset, the company went from making god-awful value smartphones to just making debatably bad value smartphones.

Fresh from CES 2018, Sony Mobile Malaysia has introduced its new Xperia XA2 and XA2 Ultra. These are their latest mid-range smartphones that are designed to take on the selfie-centric market that’s heavily dominated by the likes of OPPO, vivo and Huawei. Unlike its previous XA and XA1 smartphones, the new Xperia XA2 series is now powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 630 processor.
A new year calls for a fresh new lineup of Sony Xperia smartphones. One of it has already passed our SIRIM certification which is a sign that it could go on sale very soon. If you can’t wait, @evleaks has shared more details on three new devices which could be announced as early as next week at CES 2018.
