Sony’s current flagship phone, the Xperia S, was initially reported to receive the much anticipated Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update this coming end of May. But in a recent post from Sony’s support team…
It’s hard to keep up with so many Xperia models that Sony Mobile has been and will be churning out, but at least the Xperia SL – the successor to the Xperia S – is something that we already knew about (albeit a little) and have reported before. Following earlier leaks that showcased the many colors of Xperia SL – black, pink and purple – what you’re seeing now are the official images of the white and silver variant of the phone.
The latest leak comes from ePrice, which has been a steady source for unreleased Sony goodies. Apart from the new promotional pictures, there’s not much else to share – except that the Xperia SL may come with a dual-core 1.7GHz processor. It’s almost certain it will not be a Snapdragon S4, but rather the older S3 chip that is now powering the international version of HTC One S. So really, it’d only be a minor improvement from the processor – clocked at 1.5GHz – used by the Xperia S.
Those hoping that the Xperia SL will come with a mind-blowing sheet of specs over its predecessor should probably look elsewhere. But hey, the specs aren’t confirmed yet. If you are looking for some raw power though, the Xperia SX and the Xperia LT30p Mint may better suit your need for speed.
We’ll see what Sony has to say about the specs of the Xperia SL, and loads more, on its upcoming Berlin event at the end of the month. We’re pretty keen on finding out what the Japanese Android maker has in store for its new Xperia tablets as well.
