Sony upped its game in the Android smartphone arena with the Xperia Z and Xperia ZL flagship smartphones. But, the company hasn’t forgotten the fact that it has been its low-end and mid-range offerings that have helped the company gain popularity over the past couple of years, especially in emerging markets like India. Today, along with the Sony Xperia SP, the company also unveiled its mid to low-end smartphone, the Sony Xperia L.
Here’s a look at the specifications of the Sony Xperia L –
- 4.3-inch FWVGA display
- 1Ghz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor
- 1GB RAM
- 8GB internal storage, expandable via microSD upto 32GB
- 8MP rear camera with HDR mode for both pictures and video, 0.3MP front camera
- dedicated camera button
- 1,750 mAh battery
- Android 4.1 Jelly Bean
While the specifications of the Sony Xperia L aren’t surprising for devices in this category, Sony has packed the device with an amazing camera, with the 8MP camera featuring Sony’s “Exmor RS for mobile” sensor technology and HDR (High Dynamic Range) mode for both pictures and video, to ensure clear and stunning images, even at night, or against a strong back light.
Other key features of the Sony Xperia L include one-touch functions with NFC to display content on your TV, or easily share music and photos between devices, and battery STAMINA mode, to ensure optimum battery life. Continuing the trend started by the company last year, the Sony Xperia L also comes pre-loaded with Sony’s WALKMAN, Movies, and Albums applications.
