Sony unveils selfie-centric Xperia XA2, XA2 Ultra, and L2 smartphones

And depending on the market, the Sony Xperia XA2 will be available in either single or dual-SIM configurations, which will make it especially useful for those who are constantly hopping from one place to another. The rear camera of the XA2 possesses a single 8-mp camera lens while the XA2 Ultra possesses dual camera with 8-mp lens and 16-mp lens respectively.

You can pick them up in a handful of colours.

The phones have inevitably gained some weight and some millimeters around the waistline. It measures 150.00 x 78.00 x 9.80 (height x width x thickness) and weigh 178.00 grams. The XA2 Ultra is the same 6 inches as previous year (FullHD too), it doesn't have much room to grow.

The Xperia XA2 also runs on the same frugal and capable Snapdragon 630 processor that's mated to 3GB of RAM along with 32GB of internal storage. However, the 6-inch Xperia XA2 Ultra is a much more formidable beast, best suited to two-handed use.

The only major design difference between these Sony blowers is the sizing.

Unlocking is made easy with the one-touch rear fingerprint sensor - integrated into the smooth metallic back panel. And it will work in the USA as well, finally. According to Sony, the new devices have been dubbed as "super mid-range" smartphones. On the camera fornt, the L2 possesses 8-mp front camera lens and 13-mp rear camera lens.

The Sony Xperia XA2 Ultra is a big screen, triple camera-toting, affordable smartphone that will try and tempt those not able to afford the likes of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and Huawei Mate 10 Pro. The company has introduced Sony Xperia XA2, Sony Xperia XA2 Ultra and the Xperia L2 smartphones.

Lastly, the Xperia L2 is the baby of the bunch.

CBS appoints John Dickerson as Rose's replacement
But with " CBS This Morning ", the network is in a better competitive position against " Today " and "GMA" than ever before. Hill was later replaced by Norah O'Donnell, and now Dickerson will replace Rose, making King the only original host.

This year's model keeps the 5.5-inch 720p display of the predecessor, and there are no chipset upgrades either - it's the same Mediatek MT6737T. This doesn't necessarily mean that they'll be underpowered phones, as both offer a Snapdragon 630 processor and similarly sized batteries (3,300 mAh for the XA2 and 3,580 mAh for the XA2 Ultra).

The Xperia L2 doesn't get the 23MP main camera of the XA2s, it's a 13MP shooter instead. It's supposed to launch around the same time as the XA2 models.

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.

The phone also supports quick-charging, with Sony promising customers "hours of power with just minutes of charging".

Unlike the other two Xperia smartphones, the L2 will not run Android Oreo.

Making a debut in Sony's entry level offering is the fingerprint reader - same location as on the XA2s.

The Sony Xperia XA2 Ultra boasts a familiar Sony design, which isn't the most exciting out there, but it is at least functional.
