Sony Xperia XA2, XA2 Ultra, L2 officially selfie obsessed

Xperia XA2 & XA2 Ultra

Xperia XA2 & XA2 Ultra

Xperia XA2 is composed of anodised aluminium on the sides, with a diamond-cut finish on the top and bottom, accentuating the industrial beauty of metal. The new handsets aren't flagship devices, but rather mid-range phones that Sony has dubbed "super mid-tier smartphones".

The 3,300 mAh battery and the Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 Mobile Platform means you can do more of what you love for longer with smooth and speedy performance.

Sony says that the Xperia XA2 and Xperia xA2 Ultra will launch with Google's latest Android 8.0 Oreo in February. It's a sign that Sony might start taking the USA market more seriously - or at the very least, that it'll stand a bit more of a chance against competitors, rather than lacking a major and critical feature.

Egyptian Leaders Accept Trump's Jerusalem Move
The New York Times said Saturday Cairo allegedly instructed talk show hosts to persuade viewers to accept the USA move. The other calls were with Mofid Fawzy, who denied speaking to el-Kholi, and with Egyptian singer and actress Youssra.

In the case of the XA2, there's more to it than just extra battery - it's gotten a larger 5.2-inch FullHD display to replace the 5-inch 720p panel of the XA1.

On the imaging front, both the XA2 and XA2 Ultra come with a 23MP primary camera with an aperture of f/2.0. There's a 120° super wide-angle 8MP camera up front, so you can fit more of your friends and surroundings into selfies. The big upgrade this year is that they're moving from Mediatek Helio processors over to Qualcomm's Snapdragon line - both include the Snapdragon 630. Sony Xperia XA2 comes in silver, black, blue and pink, while the Xperia XA2 Ultra replaces to pink with gold and the Xperia L2 offers black, gold and pink hues.

Xperia XA2 Ultra has a 6-inch Full HD smartphone display with support for a wide accurate colour gamut, and a similar "borderless" design. The report highlights that the device will come with a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor.

Is inexperienced Jake Clarke-Salter really what struggling Sunderland need right now?
Clarke Salter played 4 games in the tournament including the final where he helped beat Venezuela 1-0 in South Korea. And speaking to safc.com, full-back Jones revealed how the young defender is settling into life on Wearside.

The rivalry is intense in the mid-range selfie smartphone race, but the Japanese tech giant aims to break into the competition with its Xperia XA2, XA2 Ultra and Xperia L2 smartphones.

Sony pulled no punches in the battery department and fitted a 3,300mAh power pack in the L2, up from 2,620mAh on the L1. In addition to the wide-angle found on the smaller XA2, there is a 16MP lens with Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) that Sony touts for "blur-free night-time selfies". Available in the USA, color options include Silver, Black, Blue, and Pink.

As expected, the display has increased in both size and resolution over the XA1, to 5.2-inch full HD and Sony has given the XA2 a fingerprint sensor, something the XA1 didn't feature. No word on fast charging here, though. Coming to the Xperia L2, this has a 5.5-inch HD display, 3,300 mAh battery, 120-degree super wide-angle 8MP front camera and a 13MP rear camera.

Google Unites Payment Offerings As Google Pay
All said and done, digital payment efforts by either Google or Apple in India didn't seem to have taken off as expected. Ars Technica highlights this baffling tendency in its report, "By our count, this is Google's fifth payment brand".
