Sony to refresh their processors for its mid-range Xperia phones

05 January 2018

Like you, we've been waiting for Sony to revamp its smartphone design for some time. Let's check them out together.

Sony will nearly certainly announce the Xperia XA2 series and the Xperia L2 in the near future - either at CES 2018 (January 9 - 12), or at MWC 2018 (February 26 - March 1).

Sony doesn't seem bothered as well to jump on the bandwagon of using full view display, the XA2 is still using the same 5.2-inch display, same goes to the L2 and the XA2 Ultra is using a 6-inch display, leaving quite a lot of space at the top and bottom. The smaller Xperia XA2 shares the same resolution with a 5.2-inch screen. The Xperia XA2 Ultra will sport the same 21-megapixel, 4k capable rear sensor.

These are the Sony Xperia XA2, XA2 Ultra, and L2

A pair of leaked images obtained by the Xperia Blog website has revealed devices which carry the moniker "H4233" model, an alleged factory name for the Xperia A2 Ultra from Sony. The Sony Xperia XA2 Ultra will have the same 21MP main shooter and a dual 15MP selfie cameras. Another biggest change is the transition from the MediaTek chip to Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 SoC. First, you can see the fingerprint scanner (Sony smartphones it's usually built into the power button on the side).

Given how CES 2018 is just around the corner, it is possible that Sony will unveil these phones at the trade show. Apart from that, the Xperia XA2 is expected to be available in a 3GB RAM/ 32GB storage configuration, and the Xperia XA2 Ultra is also expected to have a 4GB RAM/ 64GB storage variant. Coming to the Xperia XA2, the smartphone features the same design language, though the dual front cameras are missing.

As for the entry-level Xperia L2, details are scarce at this point. Apparently, only the XA2 and XA2 Ultra will run Android 8 Oreo out of the box, while the Xperia L2 is expected to be launched with Android 7 Nougat on board.

Instagram makes its 'recommended post' feature live for all
The " Recommended for You " option lets the users see recommendations on the basis of the posts liked by the accounts they follow. It is worth noting that with the introduction of the " recommended posts ", Instagram has done away with the chronological feed.
