The two phones have 3,300 mAh battery and 3,580 mAh battery respectively. It comes with the same 8 megapixel selfie camera that the XA2 has, and will run on Android Nougat.

At launch, Sony will offer a new leather-look Style Cover Stand allowing you to stand the phone up for video playback.

"The 5.2" Full HD display is brighter, sharper and more colourful - it sits within a borderless design, taking the screen right to the edge. The other two new smartphones, the Xperia XA2 and Xperia L2, feature similar styling and specs along with more compact form factors.

The smartphone has 120° super wide-angle 8MP front camera and 13-megapixel f/2.0 rear camera.
