You’d be forgiven for getting a tad confused with the Sony Xperia nomenclature, with the Xperia S and Xperia P being joined today by the Sony Xperia SP. Major sighs, bro.
We have another arbitrary letter assigned to the Japanese manufacturer's second new handset, the Sony Xperia L, which shouldn’t be confused with the Xperia Neo L (argh!). Name aside, it’s very much focused on camera stuff.
Diving straight into Sony Xperia L specs, we have a 4.3in display (854 x 480), dual-core 1GHz Qualcomm MSM8230 CPU, 1GB of RAM, 1,750mAh battery, Jelly Bean (Android 4.1), 8MP rear camera, and 8GB internal storage (augmentable via microSD).
Like the Sony Xperia SP, the Sony Xperia L has NFC (Near Field Communication) connectivity, though only the former has 4G LTE.
As I mentioned in the intro, the Sony Xperia L boasts a barrelful of camera fanciness, including “Exmor RS for mobile” sensor technology, HDR (High Dynamic Range) for clear image capture – night or day, and a dedicated camera key that goes from sleep to snap in "just over a second".
Again, Sony says to mark Q2 2013 in your diaries for the Sony Xperia L release date, and it’ll be “available worldwide” in white, red and black.
