Smartphone enthusiasts have something to cheer about in the form of the recently announced new entry-level smartphone from Sony. The low-cost smartphone comes bearing the Xperia L1 moniker. It's worth noting, though, the device is not a successor to 2013's Xperia L.
Sony lays emphasis on a sharp display on a nearly edge-to-edge screen. The Japanese handset maker offers the Xperia L1 in three color options including Black, White, and Pink.
Sony Xperia L1 Specifications & Features
Sticking to the company's design style, the Xperia L1 sports almost bezel-less display. Bezels on the top and bottom; however, remain thick -- a design aesthetic similar to the Xperia XZ Premium and Xperia XA1 Ultra smartphones, that were launched at the recently concluded MWC (Mobile World Congress).
Thanks to the smartphone's smooth rounded edges, it is quite easy to grip. Under the hood, the Xperia L1 runs Android 7.0 Nougat and packs 1.45GHz quad-core MediaTek MT6737T SoC, coupled with Mali-T720 MP2 GPU. The device comes with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of expandable (Up to 256GB microSD) storage, according to CNet.
On the photography front, the dual-SIM Xperia L1 sports a 13MP rear camera equipped with f/2.2 aperture and a 5MP front shooter with f/2.2 aperture and 24mm wide-angle lens. In terms of connectivity, the device offers USB Type-C, GLONASS, Bluetooth 4.2 with aptX, A-GPS, NFC, Wi-Fi 802.11n, and 4G LTE.
Sony Xperia L1 comes with a 2620mAh battery equipped with the company's own STAMINA mode, which helps save battery life. Dimension wise, the Xperia L1 measures 151x74x8.7mm and weighs in at 180 grams.
Over and above other features, Sony has added Xperia Actions to the recently announced smartphone. The feature readjusts the device to the user's time and the environment.
