As anticipated last week, today, March 18, Sony announced two new Android smartphones: Xperia SP and Xperia L. There is nothing surprising about the handsets, as we’ve heard a lot about them before, but at least now all details are official.
Both the Xperia SP and Xperia L run Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, and will be available in three color versions: black, white, and red.
The SP features a “stunning” 4.6 inch HD (1280 x 720) Reality Display with Mobile BRAVIA Engine 2, LTE, NFC, 8MP rear camera (with Sony Exmor RS, HDR, and LED flash), VGA front-facing camera, dual-core 1.7 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro CPU, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal memory, MicroSD card support, Battery STAMINA Mode, and an aluminum frame case.
The Xperia L sports a 4.3 inch FWVGA (854 x 480) display, HSDPA, NFC, 8MP rear camera (with HDR for photos and videos), VGA front-facing cameras, Battery STAMINA Mode, 1GB of RAM, dual-core 1GHz Qualcomm MSM8230 processor, 8GB of internal memory, and MicroSD card support.
“Xperia SP and Xperia L are ideally suited for those seeking stylish class-leading smartphones that don’t compromise on features. Both of our new models benefit from Sony’s proven innovation and engineering expertise – whether you want to enjoy premium HD quality entertainment over 4G LTE on our mid-range Xperia SP or capture every moment in perfect detail with our more affordable Xperia L,” declared Calum MacDougall, Director of Xperia Marketing at Sony Mobile Communications.
Sony says the Xperia SP and Xperia L will be launched around the world starting the second quarter of the year (hence in June the latest). The company didn’t unveil the handsets’ prices.
