Sony has released a new “midrange” smartphone called the Xperia L1, after the company hadn’t come up with a new mid-range phone for quite some time.
The Xperia L1 boasts a metal finish in a 8.7mm body which comes in Black, White and Pink colors. The display is a large 5.5” IPS LCD panel at 720p resolution, which is similar to Samsung’s Galaxy A3 and Huawei’s P8 Lite.
Xperia L1 comes with a 1.4 GHz quad-core Mediatek MT6737T processor with 2 GB RAM and 16 GB internal storage. A microSD card slot is included and allows memory cards of up to 256 GB size.
The OS is Android 7.0 Nougat, customized with features such as ‘Do not disturb’ mode and ‘Xperia Actions’, which customizes your profile based on your location.
Camera, Battery and Price
The primary camera boasts a 13 MP sensor with an LED flash and is coupled with a 5 MP shooter on the front. Both of these are limited to 1080p video only.
The 2620 mAh battery in the Xperia L1 supports fast charging and connectivity features include the reversible USB Type-C port as well as LTE, NFC and Bluetooth 4.0.
The most impressive part is that the Xperia L1 is quite cheap and starts at just $210. It will be released in late April this year.
