Sony announced a new budget-friendly smartphone called the Xperia L1 which will run on the latest Android 7.0 Nougat operating system. Sony unveiled its flagship Xperia XZ device at the MWC 2017 that was held last month along with few other smartphones. It’s been a while that Sony has launched an affordable handset. The device will be available in White and Pink color options and expected to be available in Black color variant next month. Nothing is known about the pricing yet, but we can expect it to be announced soon.
Coming to the specs of this handset, it has a 5.5-inch 720p touch screen display. Under the hood, the smartphone is powered by a quad-core 1.4GHz MediaTek MT6737T CPUcoupled with 2GB of RAM and Mali-T720 MP2 GPU for graphics processing. The onboard storage on the smartphone is limited to 16GB which can be extended further via a microSD card. There is also a 2,620mAh battery on the rear which is decent enough to power the device to last an entire day on normal usage.
The Sony Xperia L1 comes with a 13MP rear-facing camera with LED flash, and it will be accompanied with a 5MP front-facing shooter for the selfies and video calling. The connectivity options include support for 4G LTE, Wi-Fi 802.11n, Bluetooth v 4.2 with aptX, NFC, A-GPS, GLONASS and a USB Type-C for charging and data syncing. These are decent specs considering it a budget friendly device.
This is a dual SIM variant and will come out of the box with Android Nougat 7.0, but it is unsure if it would be getting the further updates. It will also come with many sensors which are required for automation of the device. So are you going to get this device?
