The XA2 Xperia family is powered by an octa-core 2.2GHz Cortex-A53 CPU processor (the Snapdragon 630) and this makes it much more capable than its predecessor Xperia X, which was basically a 4 + 2 cores, ed. The GPU is an Adreno 508 GPU, enough to handle the workload.
For memory, there are 3 GB of RAM and 32GB of file starting with the usual microSD slot for expansion. (To check, up to 32GB if it was the old Sailfish limit).
The battery is large, non-removable, from 3,300 mAh, more on XA2 plus and ultra; It is also compatible with QuickCharge 2.0
The front cameras is as usual for Sony very good, with a main-room 23MP f / 2.0 apertures, with 2160p / 30fps video recording. The front camera is 8MP, highlighted for its 120 degrees of shooting angle, but with fixed focus. It allows video recording at 1080p / 30fps.

Please consider that unlocking the bootloader and installing SF could void the SONY warranty.
BUT Not everything is lost: it may still be possible to send the phone to Sony, especially in the first year. The IMEI will be the reference for the SONY for international warranty.
Jolla-Devices does not provide an additional warranty to the Sony one, the item is sold as used by Jolla-Devices.
