Sony's mid-range phones will reportedly use Snapdragon processors this year

This is a range of mid-to-low range device on which the company has chosen to focus and might be unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2018.The new renders show off three new devices: the Sony Xperia XA2, the XA2 Ultra, and the Xperia L2.

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. The design of Xperia L2 is inspired from current gen Xperia smartphones.

The biggest change to these mid-range models appears to be their transition from Mediatek systems-on-chip to Qualcomm Snapdragon 630s (2.2GHz octa core). The phones that Sony is working on now include - Xperia XA2, XA2 Ultra, and L2.

If you have been following Sony closely, then you must have heard about the Sony Xperia XA2 Ultra. The Sony Xperia XZ2 Ultra and Sony Xperia L2 will don a new look that's still uniquely Sony, all while potentially addressing some points in need of much love. The devices retain the same 16:9 displays up front instead of trendy 18:9 screens, while the fingerprint sensor has now been moved to rear below the camera modules.

These are the Sony Xperia XA2, XA2 Ultra, and L2

The front panel allows you to see dual front-facing camera, and modules separated in different corners.

While both models' memory configurations should remain static as well (4GB / 64GB and 3GB / 32GB RAM and storage for the XA2 Ultra and XA2, respectively), they do look to be getting refreshed imaging components.

On the camera front, both the smartphones will bear the same rear camera of 21-megapixel with 4K recording.

"As for the more affordable Xperia L2, not too much is known yet, but it has a 5.2" HD display and will likely come with Android "Nougat" when it ships. The device will run Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box.
