“The Xperia L1 is Sony’s latest budget offering with 13MP/5MP cameras and a 2,620mAh battery”
After a long time, Sony has quietly launched a new budget smartphone called the Xperia L1. The phone comes as a successor to the 2013’s Sony Xperia L. The budget offering boots Android Nougat out of the box, and comes with “Xperia Tips”, the company’s personal assistant.
The phone offers a 5.5-inch HD display, and is powered by a 1.4GHz quad-core MediaTek MT6737T SoC, mated to 2GB of RAM. The storage capacity on board is 16GB, which can be further increased up to 256GB by inserting a microSD card.
The Xperia L1 comes with a 13-megapixel primary shooter with autofocus, f/2.2 aperture, 3x Clear Image Zoom and an LED flash. For selfies and video calling, it gets a 5-megapixel front snapper with f/2.2 aperture and a 24mm wide-angle lens. The device will be available in single and dual-SIM variants. Its connectivity features include 4G LTE, Bluetooth 4.2, a USB Type-C port and NFC. A 2,620mAh battery with Qnovo’s Adaptive Charging support keeps it running.
The Sony Xperia L1 comes in black, white and pink variants. There’s no word regarding the phone’s pricing and exact availability details at the moment. The brand will launch the device in select markets in Europe, Middle-East, Africa, Asia, North America and Latin America starting late April.
