Xperia XA2 may still come to Singapore after all, spotted both the XA2 and L2 at IMDA equipment database
not announced in sony mobile sg yet

my guess is that it will retail around $498? and street shops can sell at $400

I think so too.

But weird Sony did not announce the XA2s together. So I doubt XA2 will be out in February

Weird for Sony to release Ultra first. XA2 should sell better than Ultra since 6.0" screen is not fully accepted yet...

Actually, I see more XA Ultra series' phones outside than XA series' phones.

6" will soon be the norm, in the form of 18:9 display.

I thought it is more because XA1 is horrible, heard XA1 has many issues

I think it is not really weird.

There is XZ1 for the 5" size display but there is no flagship phone at 6", if there are consumers looking to buy sony phones.

XA2 Ultra isn't considered "flagship", it's more like "upper midrange".

Now really wondering when XA2 will be out, to me XA2U is just too big. Even the iPhone 6S Plus that I'm using now sometimes feels too big for my pocket lol.

And since it's a Snapdragon device like those flagships, really hope LTE-A interband-CA and VoLTE is supported across the Big Three. Previous XA devices all use MTK chips and therefore interband CA and VoLTE are not supported.

Correct. I did say there is no big sized flagship phones for Sony.
This includes XA2U.
