Having unveiled a quartet of premium handsets at Mobile World Congress a few weeks ago, Sony has quietly revealed another addition to its range today.
The new Xperia L1 combines premium design with relatively modest specs, although it would perhaps be fairer to call this a 'lower-mid-range' device than a truly entry-level smartphone. Shipping with Android 7.0 Nougat onboard, it will be available in three colors - black, white and pink - and its key specs include:
- 5.5-inch display with 720p resolution
- Quad-core MediaTek MT6737T processor
- 2GB RAM
- 16GB onboard storage (plus microSD card support up to 256GB)
- 13MP rear camera with autofocus and LED flash
- 5MP front-facing camera with wide-angle lens
- 4G LTE connectivity (Cat4)
- Optional dual-SIM support
- NFC support
- Bluetooth 4.2
- USB Type-C
- 2620mAh battery
- 151 x 74 x 8.7mm; 180g
The Xperia L1 will go on sale towards the end of next month in select markets across Europe, North America, Latin America, the Middle East, Africa and Asia. Pricing details haven't yet been announced.
