Sony Xperia SL is an Xperia S upgrade, to come in pink and blue
That Sony Xperia SL that leaked from the Indonesian Ministry of Information and Technology? Listed as LT26ii, it seemed to be just an upgrade to the Xperia S, which is LT26i.
Now we have some more confirmation what exactly the upgrade will be, and it seems that, besides the CPU overclock to 1.7GHz from 1.5GHz, we'll get a couple of new color schemes too.
The Xperia S is available in black and white, but the Xperia SL will be coming in those nice blue and pink colors you see on the pictures, upping its street cred. Sony did a similar thing last year with the Xperia arc, releasing an overclocked Xperia arc S with a different color scheme.
Well, it's one way to breathe new life into an existing handset, and we'll keep an eye if there will be any price premium over the Xperia S when the SL lands on shelves.
