The Sony Xperia SP and Xperia L have been announced in mid-March, but so far, we haven’t heard any official information on the release date of the two devices, other than a vague statement from Sony saying that they would be released in Q2 of 2013.

It appears that those in the UK who are interested in these devices 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, noting that they are expected in April 2013.

While the Carphone Warehouse website doesn’t specifically state the prices of the phones, we got word last month that the Xperia L will be available for €279, while the Xperia SP will cost €399. UK prices may vary.


For those of you who are considering these devices, the Xperia L will sport a 4.3-inch FWVGA display with a 1GHz dual-core processor, an 8MP camera, 1GB of RAM, and 8GB of internal memory. If you are willing to splurge a little more and get the Xperia SP, then you will enjoy the same basic specs, except that this device has a 4.6-inch HD display with LTE connectivity and a 1.7GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor.

Note that this is by no means an official information, so don’t make any plans until you hear anything concrete.
