Basking in the reflected glory of Sony’s well-received Xperia Z smartphone are two new Xperia devices today. Forming ranks in the low-to-mid range categories, Sony have today unvielied the Sony Xperia SP and Sony Xperia L smartphones.
Of the two, the Xperia SP is the more advanced phone. 4G-enabled, it pulls together elements of last year’s Xperia S and Xperia P, popping a 4.6-inch 720p display with Sony’s Mobile Bravia Engine 2 tech up front, powered by a 1.7GHz dual-core processor.
Packing in 8GB of internal memory, the Xperia SP also features an 8MP rear camera, NFC connectivity and a 2,370mAh battery.
Running Android Jelly Bean, the handset again features a translucent panel that glows different colours to give you at-a-glance information on what notifications are awaiting your attention.
The Xperia L on the other hand sits firmly at the entry level. It’s running off a 1GHz dual-core processor, with a 4.3-inch FWVGA screen up front. 8GB of internal storage and an 8MP camera again feature, alongside Android Jelly Bean, NFC and a 1,750mAh battery pack. No notification light bar here, though a standard LED for notifications does feature.
Both handsets also feature removable batteries and microSD storage expansion.
Heading out in the second quarter of the year, you’ll be able to pick both handsets up in white, black and red shades. No word on exact release dates or pricing yet, but we’ll keep you posted.
