First there was CES, which brought us the Xperia Z and ZL from Sony — one which we recently reviewed, another one which we’ll very soon review — then there was MWC with nothing notable and now, post or in-between major shows, Sony has officially announced two new Xperia phones joining the 2013 line-up: the Xperia L and Xperia SP.
The Xperia L is a low-end phone featuring a 4.3-inch FWVGA screen; it is powered by a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor clocking at 1GHz, and has, 8GB of internal storage (expandable via microSD card), NFC, eight-megapixel camera — with HDR capabilities for both photo and video — and runs Android 4.1.
The higher-end among the two — while still arguably dated- is the Xperia SP; it packs a 4.6-inch 720p display, and is powered by Qualcomm’s dual-core Snapdragon S4 CPU clocking at 1.7GHz. There’s an eight-megapixel camera, 8GB of internal storage (expandable via microSD card), NFC, LTE, and Android 4.1.
