Pictures of a prototype model of what is likely to be the Sony XA2 Ultra smartphone have leaked on the web and it looks like the manufacturer will be sticking to its classic design language with thick bezels and a 16:9 aspect ratio for the display. The leaks also show a dual front-facing camera setup, a rear camera, and a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor.

We have been hearing about the Sony XA2 Ultra for quite some time now. It was earlier identified with the model number H4233 and made its GFXBench debut back in September. The GFXBench entry revealed that this phone would be sporting a 6-inch FHD display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 SoC, 4 GB RAM, and 64 GB internal storage. The rear camera is said to be a 21 MP shooter while the dual front-facing cameras are said to be sporting 15 MP sensors each. Just like its predecessor, the XA1 Ultra, the new model is expected to feature optical image stabilization (OIS) on both the front and rear cameras. In all likelihood, the device will be running Android 8.0 Oreo.

While it is good to see that Sony has trimmed the side bezels, the top and bottom bezels are still humongous, considering the bezel-less design language and 18:9 displays OEMs have been adopting since 2017. The presence of OIS in the dual selfie cameras could warrant the large top bezels but it is very much possible that the handset will be criticized for sporting large bezels. Sony might unveil the XA2 Ultra during CES 2018 or at the very least, during MWC 2018.
