The Sony Xperia L4, or “Togari” as it is also known, has been confirmed by two more sources, which have also provided further details about it.
Interestingly enough, Greek site Tech Blog has confirmed some interesting information about the future device, saying that it would have (as previously rumored) a 6.4 inch screen with a Full HD resolution, but that it would be a screen capable of working with any pen or pencil, not only a stylus or your finger.
Gizbot says that a “handset with an extra large display” was confirmed by Sony sources at a recent Delhi event. The sources said that the company was preparing a device with a larger screen, to counter the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, rumored for a July-August launch.
The rest of the information is pretty consistent with previous rumors, in the sense that it mentions an Xperia Z-like design and a better CPU — the Snapdragon 600 and 800 are mentioned, as well as 2 GB of RAM. The camera would be a 13 megapixel one, featuring an Exymor RS sensor. NFC (which Sony has been promoting in a cute TV ad recently) and an IR blaster are also mentioned as being part of the equation.
In terms of release date, Gizbot says that it would come out at IFA Berlin 2013 (September of this year) or at CES 2014 (January 2014). As you may remember, the initial rumors were mentioning a July release in China, with the device coming to international markets in August or September, which fits the timeline for release at IFA.
It’s too early to be making predictions, but the Sony Xperia L4 looks to be a pretty interesting device. We’ll just have to wait and see what the future brings.
