Another Sony Xperia phone is coming to town for 2013. This time it’s the Xperia L, a mid-range model that provides class-leading camera technology that supports HDR for both photos and videos.
The Sony Xperia L inherits its good looks from its brothers but with sloped edges and a matte plastic removable back cover. Just like other Xperia phones, it also has a transparent bottom edge that illuminates when there are notifications.
It has a 4.3 inch FWVGA screen for an average 228 ppi pixel density. It doesn’t have that Sony Mobila BRAVIA Engine like its pricier brothers so don’t expect the same sharp and vivid display. That doesn’t exactly mean it’s all that bad though considering it’s a 4.3-inch screen.
As for power, the Xperia L uses a 1GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor with 1GB RAM and 8GB internal storage plus microSD support. It runs on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and has NFC to boot.
It’s value proposition would be its 8-megapixel camera with Sony’s unique “œExmor RS for mobile” sensor technology for vivid colours and stunning clarity. HDR (High Dynamic Range) ensures that both your photos and videos are captured clearly, even at night or against a strong backlight. And with the dedicated camera key that goes “˜from sleep to snap’ in just over a second even from a locked screen, this fast-capture camera phone will ensure that you’ll never miss another moment.
The Sony Xperia L should be available this month for Php14,990 and comes in black, red, and white.
