Among them is Sony. Like last year's models, they sport a metal chassis that's sleek yet rugged. Oh, and with QuickCharge 3.0 you'd be able to fill those cells rapidly when they eventually do run out.

Xperia L2 will launch in Single SIM and Dual SIM in select markets, in three colours: Black, Gold and Pink - each rendered with reflective surfaces, emphasising the "loop surface" design, and unlocking is made easy with a single touch via the rear fingerprint sensor. The XA2 Ultra will come in four different colors such as gold, blue, black, and silver.

Sony Xperia XA2

Sony has introduced its latest selfie-centric smartphones with the new Xperia XA2 and Xperia XA2 Ultra. This should fall naturally under your fingertip when you pick up the device.

The Xperias have been redesigned, and while it's not night and day compared to previous devices, the differences are notable.

Doctors said his brain was deprived of oxygen for a while, but he is able to speak and remember things, which are both good signs. He was taken to the Institute of Legal Medicine in Oviedo for an autopsy .

The screen is a 5.2-inch Full HD display, covered with Corning Gorilla Glass. XA2 comes with a 5.2-inch FullHD display while the XA2 Ultra comes with a much bigger 6-inch FullHD display. Sony panels rarely disappoint and we're expecting crisp, vibrant images to be produced by both handsets. 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 smartphone packs a 3850mAh battery with Qualcomm Quick Charge support. As for the last few years Sony Mobile smartphones that have made their way to the United States have not come with working fingerprint sensors. Qualcomm's Snapdragon 630 chipset is on board, offering respectable everyday performance from Android Oreo.

Moving on from selfies, the rear camera setup isn't disappointing at all.

What's most significant about these devices is that all will be launching in the USA with fingerprint sensors, which marks the first time in a long time that a Sony device sold in the US has a working fingerprint sensor. For selfies, the 120-degree lens on the front captures more subjects and surrounding with each shot. The 23-megapixel Sony Exmor RS rear camera is complemented by dual front-facing cameras, one with an 8-megapixel 120° wide-angle lens and a second with a 16-megapixel sensor and optical image stabilization. For low light, the ISO can be boosted to 12800.

There are two mid-range models: the Xperia XA2 and Xperia XA2 Ultra (pictured above), both sequels to last year's XA1 and XA1 Ultra.

Why sleeping 20 minutes extra can help boost weight loss
Sleep is a modifiable risk factor for various conditions including obesity and cardio-metabolic disease, researchers said. The team also studied 21 other adults who also were getting less than seven hours' sleep as a control group.

While an exact release date hasn't been revealed, O2 has said it will be the exclusive stockist of the silver version of the XA2 in the United Kingdom when it launches "in the coming weeks". You can see the full tariff information and everything else you need to know on O2's Xperia XA2 page.
