Xperia LSony has unveiled a new handset – the Sony Xperia L (C2104, C2105) – that sits below the Xperia SP (C530X). It is another nicely designed handset sporting decent camera features including a dedicated camera button.

In terms of specs, the Sony Xperia L is powered by the MSM8230 Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset with 1GHz dual-core processor and Adreno 305 graphics. The phone will come with 1GB RAM, 8GB of internal storage (5.6GB accessible for apps and media) and microSD memory card support.

The handset comes with a 4.3-inch FWVGA (480 x 854) display and supports 4-finger multi-touch. It also supports SCHOTT scratch-resistant glass. Camera duties are taken care of an 8MP Exmor RS sensor supporting HDR photos and 720p video recording. The handset also has a VGA front-facing camera.

The Xperia L will come with a 1750mAh typical (1700mAh minimum) battery capacity allowing 8 hours 30 mins of 3G talktime. Other features include NFC, PlayStation Certified and Bluetooth 4.0. Sensor support includes accelerometer, ambient light sensor, proximity sensor and magnetometer.

The Xperia L has dimensions of 128.7 x 65 x 9.7 mm and weighs 137 grams. The Xperia L will launch globally with Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean during Q2. It will come in three colours – black, red and white.

    HDR on a budget! WOOOT!

  • LancerEX

    So I guess this is the entry level phone of 2013 from Sony? :D Impressive specs, I just wish it’ll be priced like the Xperia U last year! :D

  • why only FWVGA (480 x 854) display?? its 2013 but still low specs pixel :((

  • John-Mark Christmas

    If you are releasing in Q2, then you have more than enough time to put on 4.2.2 before release,

  • galafix

    Oh, and what’s with the SCHOTT glass?

  • I wish the white of the Z looked like this, covering the front instead of the black

  • galafix

    To lower the price tag.

  • MyLive

    Follow the link dude..

  • Lunkz

    Finally they found the SCHOTT Glass. Better than Gorilla Glass.

  • azmadu

    But they wont ;-)

  • This handset would be so much nicer with a qHD (960×540) display. The SP is too big for me.

  • Mr. X

    Loook at this !!!
    the arc design is still alive.., elegant and beautiful..
    well.., from the specs I hope it’s priced below Xperia P..

  • kust0r

    this one seems a good compromise. Solid average-use phone with (arguably) good camera. But in this range the low-lever hype chills fast.. Sony should plan better and faster releases roadmaps!

  • Yes, I like phone with everything in white.

  • So if I have an Xperia S, these phone are in the same lines or specs as Xperia S?

  • jan

    sony really knows how to design great products!

  • paul_cus

    The L has the curved back like the Arc? I couldn’t tell from the picture or video. Hope that’s the case.

  • Guest

    +1 I want at least a tiny upgrade from my Arc
    And can they make the bezel thinner so it is <64mm wide? That would have been even better.
    But then again, a low speed dual core with a "low" resolution should make for decent battery life?
    Will be up to Sony to update this instead of screwing people getting the lower end models, like the U and Sola.

  • osin17

    It’s the same phone than xperia T. Sony is making copy of theses phones again….

  • osin17

    Oh, i forgot to notice the nxt bar

  • lolsomany

    entry level – xperia E

    low end – xperia L

  • sony xperia sp has Mobile BRAVIA® Engine 2. but in xperia L what is the engine????

  • jjghj

    So, how does this compare to the Xperia U? (i’m guessing this is the spirtual successor from screen size). Wondering which one to get….
