After launching a plethora of premium smartphones at the recently concluded MWC 2017, Sony has silently announced the launch of Xperia L1 smartphone in black, white, and pink color variants. Touted as a budget smartphone, the Xperia L1 features a 5.5-inch HD display paired with a narrow bezel design.
Under the hood, the Sony Xperia L1 is equipped with a MediaTek MT6737T processor, Mali-T720 MP2 graphics, 2GB RAM, 16GB expandable internal storage. The phone comes loaded with Android 7.0 Nougat.
While the rear camera offers a 13MP sensor with f/2.2 aperture, the front-facing shooter is equipped with a 5MP sensor coupled with a f/2.2 aperture. The camera integrates a 24mm wide-angle lens for an accurate and crisp capture of objects.
We are surprised that Sony has infused 4G LTE with the budget Xperia L1 handset. Furthermore, the phone also offers all standard sensors including Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.2, NFC, A-GPS, GLONASS.
The highlight of the Sony Xperia L1 is the addition of a 2620mAh battery with support for fast charging via USB Type-C technology. Furthermore, the company has integrated a STAMINA mode for battery saving.
As of writing this, we don’t have any information about the approximate cost of Sony Xperia L1 smartphone. However, we expect it to be priced below $120. If Sony fixes the price under $120, then the phone will have to compete the newly launched Redmi 4A smartphone.
