Sony Just Announced Another New Phone: The Xperia L1

A couple of premium Xperia Z's and X's later, Sony seems to have reworked their strategy with the budget smartphones and are back with the Xperia L1. Being a Sony smartphone, the Xperia L1 comes with the company's signature xLOUD and Clear Audio+ technologies, along with stereo recording. On the inside is a MediaTek MT6737T chipset with 4x 1.45GHz Cortex-A53 CPU and Mali-T720 MP2 GPU, 2GB RAM and 16GB storage with microSD expansion.

Described as "An Xperia smartphone that performs as good as it looks" - top grammar there, guys - the phone includes Sony's Xperia Actions, which changes settings depending on your surroundings.

Sony Xperia L1 has a 5.5-inch HD IPS display with 720 x 1280 pixels resolution. Additionally, on the camera end, the smartphone is equipped with a 13 MP camera with f/2.2 on the rear panel and a 5 MP camera with 24 mm wide angle lens and f/2.2 aperture. On the software front, the Xperia L1 will launch with the latest Android Nougat OS out of the box. The device also comes with the latest Bluetooth 4.2, NFC, 4G LTE connectivity, Dual-SIM support, and more.

As of now, there has been no mention regarding the price of the Xperia L1, but according to AndroidHeadlines, the smartphone is expected to launch in select markets including Europe, Middle East, Africa, Asia, North America and Latin America in April. For example, it will lower the screen brightness and set the phone to "Do not disturb" mode when you're likely to be asleep, based on its learning of your behaviours. The Xperia L1 features an nearly edge to edge display.
