Today Sony revealed the Xperia XA2, XA2 Ultra, and L2, and though they all have varying internals and features, one thing that's true across all three is their focus on providing top notch selfies.

Xperia XA2, XA2 Ultra, L2 official renders show an important change

Xperia XA2, XA2 Ultra, L2 official renders show an important change

Sony is not one to make huge changes to its smartphone line. While its rivals has had made drastic changes over the years, some good, some not so good, Sony’s Xperia line has remained mostly the same in that same time span. And when it does change something, it changes it in such a small way that it’s barely noticeable. That seems to be the exact same pattern that Sony will apply to the Xperia XA2, XA2 Ultra, and L2, except for one new thing.

Xperia XA2, XA2 Ultra, L2 appear in glorious 3D renders

Once upon a time, Sony’s smartphones were the most leaked and worst kept secrets in the industry. As Sony’s prominence descended into near obscurity, so did the photos of leaked prototypes. Fortunately, we still have renders to chew on at least. Thanks to @OnLeaks, who worked together with TigerMobiles and CompareRaja, we now have a glimpse at three of Sony’s upcoming mid-range models, the Xperia XA2 and XA2 Ultra as well as the Xperia L2. And they might not be to everyone’s tastes.

Sony Android TV on Nougat can capture screens for ads

Sony Android TV on Nougat can capture screens for ads

Ads may have become a nuisance on our phones and web browsers, but we can trace their roots back to the annoying commercials on TV. Somewhat ironically, it seems that Sony has found a way to bring that intrusive character full circle back to TVs. Smart TVs this time, though. It seems that an otherwise harmless and much desired update to Android 7.0 Nougat on Sony's Android TVs have brought along what can almost be classified as spyware. And while there is actually a way to disable it, the fact that users have to bend over backwards to do so is a huge knock on Sony's usually commendable reputation among Android users.

Xperia XZ2 could still save Sony’s 2018 lineup

Xperia XZ2 could still save Sony’s 2018 lineup

Some OEMs cast a wide net and hope they catch as many fish as they can. Or said in another way, they throw as many they can on a wall and hope at least one sticks. That is almost the strategy that Sony is employing for its smartphones, putting out nearly identical yet still distinct models each year, with some feature overlap and confusing features. Just like the H8216, which may be the Xperia XZ2 or XZ1s, which could actually be Sony’s best bet next year.

Did Sony just leak God of War’s release date?

Did Sony just leak God of War’s release date?

The PlayStation 4 has a lot of exciting games coming up, but perhaps one of the most exciting is God of War. Though you'd think most players would tire of God of War by now, after 12 releases across various Sony consoles and handhelds, this soft reboot of sorts is definitely shaking things up a bit. With Kratos now living among the gods of Norse mythology, the next God of War game should be quite different from what we're used to, at least as far as the setting is concerned.

Monster Hunter: World PS4 beta kicks off this week

Monster Hunter: World PS4 beta kicks off this week

Among long time Monster Hunter fans, Monster Hunter: World is kind of a big deal. In recent years, the mainline Monster Hunter series has been limited to handhelds, and when it hasn't been, the games have been exclusive to Nintendo consoles, such as Monster Hunter Tri on the Wii. While the handheld Monster Hunter releases have been fine - great, even - they don't always capture the "wow" factor that a larger screen would give these massive monsters.
