 Sony Xperia L Available now
18th March 2013

Not long ago the specifications of the Sony Xperia L would be regarded as being impressively high-end, but these days the features of this Android smartphone are definitely more mid-market than that.

Based around a 1GHz dual-core CPU with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of storage (plus a microSD slot), the Sony Xperia L has a 4.3" 480 x 854 pixel display on the front with a VGA resolution video calling camera, and on the back is an 8 megapixel camera capable of 720p video capture. With these specs, the Xperia L can perhaps be considered as the successor to last year's Xperia P.

 Sony Xperia L This is an Android 4.1 smartphone that does everything that you would expect an Android smartphone to do, including supporting HSPA+, WiFi and Bluetooth 4 connectivity. It also supports GPS, is NFC capable and comes with a FM radio.

The Xperia L is gently curved on the back, a characteristic that we've seen on a few Sony and Sony Ericsson devices in the past. It comes with a 1750 mAh battery which is quoted as giving a maximum of 9 hours talktime and nearly 19 days of standby time, although real-life use will be considerably less. The Xperia L measures 129 x 65 x 9.7mm and weighs 137 grams. Available colour schemes are white, red and black.

Fundamentally, this is just like any other recent Sony Xperia handset, and it looks like a competent midrange device if you are upgrading from a previous generation of Xperia. No guidance was given on price, but we guess that the Xperia L will cost something in the region of €350 when it hits retail channels during Q2 2013.
