Sony is clearly taking the Samsung route of not leaving out any segment of the mobile industry, so now there are Sony smartphones for the entire market spectrum. The Xperia Z and ZL smartphones are already out in the market and the company is believed to be working on a slew of other devices, such as Sony Xperia SP (C530X) and Xperia V, the Xperia L (210X), a C680X device and Xperia C670X.
One of the many devices in the Xperia family, Xperia L, now has had new details leaked, which gives us a much clearer look into specifications of the device ahead of an official announcement. Xperia L, believed to be a more affordable alternative to Sony's flagship Xperia Z, is currently codenamed TaoShan, and the leak comes from Xperia Blog.
It was earlier revealed through a previous benchmark that the device will come with a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 dual-core processor clocked at 1GHz and Adreno 305 graphics. The latest leak puts the dimensions of the device at 128.7 x 65 x 9.7mm.
According to Xperia Blog, the smartphone will feature a 4.3-inch FWVGA touchscreen display with 480 x 854-pixel resolution. The mid-range handset will notably come with the latest Exmor RS sensor in an 8-megapixel camera for better low-light performance. This is the same technology we recently saw in the higher-resolution 13-megapixel camera found in the Xperia Z. Although the device comes with a lackluster resolution, the Exmor RS sensor technology would enable the phone with better image capturing capacity in low-light conditions.
The smartphone will have 8GB of internal storage, microSD memory card support and a 1700mAh capacity battery. The device will be launched with Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean.
Sony Xperia L will carry the model number C210X (C2104, C2105, S36h) and is expected to be announced at the same time as the Sony Xperia SP (C530X). However, the report does not confirm any release dates yet.
Overall, the device seems to offer a good range of specifications for a mid-range smartphone and may go on to find a solid position for itself in the mid-range smartphone market. The phone appears to have taken a couple of design cues from the recently-launched Xperia Z and, looking at its dimensions, it's a reasonably pocket-friendly device. Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean is not a great feature to speak of, given the number of features available on devices running Android 4.2; however, an update to the latest version of the operating system will not be far away.
