Unveiled a couple of weeks ago, the Sony Xperia SP is a little less impressive than its Z and ZL cousins, but still fairly intriguing for those of you looking to save a buck and not sacrifice too much.
Those in the UK who are interested in the Xperia SP and Xperia L could be able to grab a unit later this month. The information comes as Carphone Warehouse has added the Xperia SP and Xperia L to its website.
Aside from making us face the first world problem of choosing between the very similar Xperia Z and ZL high-end devices, Sony has very recently made buying a budget new Xperia phone also difficult.
With the high-end smartphone niche fully covered by the beautiful Xperia Z and ZL, all that Sony needed to make 2013 look like the most promising year ever was a little something something for the entry-level and mid-range sectors.
Meet the Sony Xperia SP, the not-so-modest little brother of the impressive Xperia Z and ZL. This fellow has been making the rumor rounds for a couple of months now, but has become official earlier today and is due out in Europe and Asia “from Q2 2013”.
Aside from the flagship Xperia Z and ZL, Sony is prepping a pair of mid-range phones that have yet to be unveiled, the Xperia SP and L. Now, we have what appears to be the official render of the SP.
Sony Mobile Russia has sent out invites to a press event on March 18 in Moscow. Is this going to be the official launch of the Xperia SP and Xperia L?
Sony didn’t want to steal any of Xperia Z’s thunder at MWC, which is why the expected L and SP weren’t unveiled, but now is as good a time as any for the mid-range duo to debut.
A new Sony phone has just been leaked, the SP, and it’s not really all that exciting. It has a 4.6 inch 720p display, which would have been cool in 2012, but we’re in 2013.
Is there anything more baffling in the Android world than the branding of Samsung’s latest mid-range offerings? Sure there is, Sony’s naming scheme.
