The design language on all three models closely mirrors that of the current Xperia lineup - for better or for worse - but several leaks offer some hope that Sony is also preparing higher-end handsets with significantly reduced bezels. The smartphone is said to come with a 6-inch display with a FHD screen resolution of 1,920×1,080 pixels.

Either way, despite a broad palette of color options, the Sony Xperia XA2, XA2 Ultra and Xperia L2 look anything but eye-catching, with thick "chins" and "foreheads", rather bland backplates, and plastic still seemingly running the build material show.

Meanwhile, the Xperia XA2 (pictured just above) will have a 5.2-inch 1080p HD display, the same Snapdragon 630 processor, 3GB of RAM, and 32GB of built-in storage.

What is certain is the processing power of the Xperia A2 Ultra, which will come from Snapdragon 830 octa-core chip, clocking in at around 2.2 gigahertz (GHz). The successor to Xperia L will be officially unveiled as Xperia L2. Based on recent GFX Bench listings of the smartphone, the alleged XA2 is seen sporting a 21MP rear camera supporting 4K video recording. It's also getting an updated 21-megapixel rear camera that's 4K-capable and a 7-megapixel front camera.

A report by Evan Blass from VentureBeat, tips that Sony's upcoming low and mid-range smartphone series might be announced at next week's CES 2018 in Las Vegas or at next month's Mobile World Congress.

Less is known about the entry-level Xperia L2 (pictured above and below), other than the fact that it will maintain its predecessor's 5.2-inch, 720p display size and resolution - and that, unlike the Android Oreo-equipped Xperia XA2 duo, it may still ship with the older Android Nougat. One of the sensors is speculated to be of 16MP, while the other is unknown. Additionally, it will include a 16MP dual front camera, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage.
