It has a 23MP f/2.0 primary camera and shares the same 8MP front-facing camera as the smaller Xperia XA2. Its battery capacity is 3580mAh, the same as that of the Ultra. There is Quick Charge 3.0 and Sony’s Qnovo Adaptive Charging technology.
The Xperia XA2 Plus runs Android Oreo, has a USB-C port, dual-nano SIM slot, Bluetooth 5.0, and a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner. It also has an FM radio, Hi-Res audio, a smart amplifier, and comes with a Bluetooth headset.
