Sony Xperia SL specs and snaps slip out on Sony website
The handset is billed as the successor to the Sony Xperia S handset and is placed firmly in the mid-range of their smartphone line-up.
The mobile sports a 12.1-megapixel camera with a 1.7GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor and Android Ice Cream Sandwich. Disappointingly, no Jelly Bean here folks.
The display is a 4.3-inch TFT screen with a 1280 x 720 resolution and the capacity to display up to 16 million colours. Hopefully it doesn’t suffer the yellow screen wash-out experienced on the Xperia S.
Sony has kitted the SL’s snapper with a 12.1-megapixel sensor complete with auto focus, 16x digital zoom and pulsed LED flash.
Housed in exactly the same 128 x 64 x 10.6mm case as the Sony Xperia S, the Xperia SL comes in four colour choices: black, silver, white and pink.
The faster processor will inevitably lead to the device getting the latest Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update on the handset in the coming months – Sony just has to get 4.1 on their flagship phones first 😉
You can check out the full features on the Sony website but expect more details after the Xperia SL goes even more “official” at Sony’s IFA event on August 29th.
