Yes, Sony still makes smartphones and the company's mid-range models come at a time when more people are looking to find reliable mobile at reasonable prices.
Over the past two years, Sony Xperia devices featured a fingerprint scanner with a side button on the device. On new models, Sony carried the fingerprint reader to the center of the back of the device as we have seen from Huawei, Google, LG and other manufacturers.
The move will probably make the device more appealing to business customers.
Sony is known for releasing new devices with Google's latest operating system, so all new devices: Xperia XA2 and XA2 Ultra will run on Android 8.0 Oreo.
The XA2 will be available in silver, black, blue and pink, while the XA2 Ultra will be available in silver, black, blue and gold.
Both devices will run with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 processor and feature high-performance cameras with 2.5D curved edge-to-edge display.
The Sony Xperia L2 will be available at a more affordable price, which has not yet been revealed, with Android 7.1.1 running and slightly lower specifications than the two XA devices. It will be available in the US in black, gold and pink.
