Sony may not be at the forefront of mobile market share, but it's certainly hoping to change that over time with the advent of the Xperia line. Today, two new mobiles are being unveiled, the Xperia SP and Xperia L.
The SP has a 4.6" HD Reality Display (720p), BRAVIA Engine 2, a co-moulded aluminum frame, an 8MP camera, NFC, LTE and a dual-core 1.7GHz Snapdragon CPU. The phone weighs 5.5oz., and there's a pretty stellar notification light along the bottom to spruce things up. The Xperia L is the lower-end of the two, offering a 4.3" FWVGA display, 1GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4, 8GB of internal storage, a microSD slot, NFC, and an 8MP rear camera. Also featured on both models are Sony’s One-touch functions, allowing you to easily and instantly enjoy music and photos across an array of devices, such as Sony’s SRS-BTV5 portable speaker and latest range of NFC-enabled BRAVIA TVs, with just a single touch. It’s sharing made easy with no wires, cables, or fiddling with settings necessary.
Both handsets will run Android, and while pricing hasn't been released for either, they'll ship in Q2 worldwide.
