Nice design! May will new xperias get this design.
Hardware is not so killer, these secondary line phones are not for me.
I'm very interested about xz3 first look... :-)
I really love the design but i'm not sure if i'm going to buy this since it doesn't have IP raring :((
Anonymous, 11 Jul 2018XA2 was $340... How do you expect this to be $300? Oopss. I mean $400. Just realized now. Lol.
yuromonomoto, 11 Jul 2018in render and photo shop , sony has very high price,. this phone will cost a minimum 400 max 500$It'll cost at ballpark of $380 to $410 for the launch price (XA2 was $340 and XA2U was $410 at price launch) . There's no way XA2+ to be priced higher than XA2U at $500 if the XA2U itself reached no higher than $440 , as XA2+ is placed between regular XA2 and XA2 Ultra , just like XA1+ predecessor , tho $400 could be expected as i just said .
With 18:9 format to, hate this tiny width format... a shame as nearly all other brand now...
This is how the XZ2 Series should've looked in terms of design. Not the ugly a$$ Ambient Flow with a thick backpack the XZ2 Series presently has.
Geez was it so hard to do that design on the XZ2/XZ2C? I have to admit they could have sneaked in a processor upgrade too just to make it a little more different than the two other phone (and that's a Plus model. It should offer... plus)
Now for the pricing and availability, the biggest challenge about Sony...
Now, this is a good design. But FPS needs to be side-mounted.
Price will be astronomical, no doubt.
Anonymous, 11 Jul 2018For once, this is a "worthy" device. BUT knowing Sony, it is likely OVERPRICED for a mid-range... moreJudging by the price of last-year predecessor in the US unlocked , the XA1 Plus launch price was at $380 , and by this year XA2 family-siblings , regular XA2 priced at $340 and XA2 Ultra priced at $440 , expect the price of XA2 Plus priced at ballpark of $380-$410 .
Ok, so Apple sells a phone with specs you'd find on a mid-range 300$ Android phone: Average screen (which happens to be the most delicate in the market), mediocre battery, decent cameras, no fingerprint sensor, Face ID that works when it wants, and a processor that while being powerful, is thirsty as hell.
A phone that feels cheap and frail in your hand.
Why everyone complains when you see quality mid-top range phones like this priced at 500?
73RR4N, 11 Jul 2018Budget chipset, no stereospeakers, relatively large bezels, gimmicky hi-res audio, and likely ... moreBetter audio quality is gimmick? Tell me a $380 phone with stereo speakers, because OnePlus and Xiaomi dont have not even on flagships. Actually Note 8 does not have.
Moto G6+ is 300 euros. It has old Gorilla 3, 3200mAh, shit photos, lower screen to body ratio.
XA2+ will get android P before S9+ , while G6+ will wait until may

For once this is a great change from Sony traditional looks. Hope its not over $300. The specs is very good too.
