Sony has announced its Xperia L4, a new entry-level model in its range of entertainment-oriented smartphones. The new device comes with a 6.2” 21:9 wide display making it ideal for viewing TV shows and movies.
To make full use of the slender display, Sony includes its multi-window UI allowing you to launch two apps at the same time. It said both of these windows will be in “easy-viewing sizes” despite being displayed at the same time. Additionally, Side sense will give you quick access to all of your favourite apps.
With it being an entertainment-focused device, Sony was keen to highlight which cameras ship with the Xperia L4. The new device is the first in the L series to feature a triple camera; it includes a 13MP main lens, 5MP ultra-wide lens, and a 2MP depth lens. By including the extra lenses, you can take wide and ultra-wide shots, ideal for capturing landscapes. The front camera is 8MP and supports Display Flash, HDR photo, and Portrait Selfie.
In terms of storage, the Xperia L4 comes with 3GB RAM and 64GB of storage which is expandable with microSDXC support up to 512GB. It includes Dual SIM support (Nano SIM), runs Android 9 Pie, is powered by a Mediatek MT6762 CPU, and has quite a big 3,580mAh battery that supports USB Power Delivery fast charging.
It supports 2G, 3G, and 4G connectivity, has a USB Type-C port, and supports NFC so that you can make payments with the phone. Bluetooth 5.0 support comes with the device as well as the ability to connect to GPS and GLONASS satellites ensuring better location accuracy in built-up areas where getting a line-of-sight with the satellites may be difficult.
The Xperia L4 is available in Black and Blue and will start shipping in select markets from Spring 2020. The phone’s product page is online already if you’d like to take a closer look.
