Sony Xperia SP is finally here. The much anticipated phone by Sony fans around the world. While the Sony’s Xperia Z tablet and smartphone occupy its high-end Android selection, it’s now the turn of the middleweights. Sony Xperia SP is 4.6-inch phone that ties together the some of the features from both the S and P models last year.
You got it right! It’s all in the name. Alongside a 720p screen with Sony’s Bravia Mobile Engine 2, there’s an 8-megapixel Exmor RS sensor on the back, LTE, NFC, and a dual-core 1.7GHz Snapdragon MSM8960 Pro processor. That’s all built into a stunning aluminum frame that’s just shy of 10mm thick and weighs about 5.5 ounces. The phone marks the return of Sony’s see-through strip, but with a slightly more advanced customizable notification light built into it.
Over at Engadget.com, they managed to spend a bit of time with the device last month. Check out the first impressions at Engadget.com. They also have their very own hands-on video of the Xperia SP!
Here’s another cool smartphone from Sony. Two years in, and the company appears to have hit a stride with its smartphone portfolio, churning out new Xperias on a consistent basis. And today is no different with the unveiling of the Xperia L, a mid- to low-end effort that places a heavy emphasis on the camera experience. Carrying on the Arc’s legacy, this 4.3-inch handset packs an FWVGA display, dual-core 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4, 1,700mAh battery, 8GB of internal storage (expandable via microSD), NFC and an 8-megapixel rear shooter with Exmor RS sensor into a conspicuously curved body rounded off with that signature Xperia power key.
Though it lacks the greater resolution and screen size of its 720p sibling the SP, this more budget-friendly device does enjoy an exclusive perk: HDR stills and video. A feature Sony’s included to make the L an attractive point-and-shoot option for budget-minded consumers concerned with style points and not LTE or raw performance. Unsurprisingly, it comes pre-loaded with a trio of Sony’s own media apps — Walkman, Movies and Album — a precedent it set at IFA last year.
