Today's Sony event didn't bring much in terms of surprises. In fact, the show was all about the company's two new Android smartphones, just as we expected given all leaks and speculations that preceded it.
One of these newly-announced handsets is the Sony Xperia L, which is a stylish mid-range device that stands out primarily with photographic skills. There's an 8MP camera on its back with an Exmor RS sensor that enables cool features like HDR mode while shooting photos or video, just like on the Xperia Z flagship. In addition, you get a dedicated shutter key that can snap a photo in under a second straight from the lock screen.
Other than that, the Sony Xperia L is your typical mid-range device. It is powered by a dual-core Snapdragon S4 Plus SoC - the Qualcomm MSM8230 running at 1GHz. The 4.3-inch screen has a resolution of 854 by 480 pixels so it isn't quite HD, although it should meet the needs of the average consumer. You can have the smartphone in any color, as long as it is black, white, or red. The exact capacity of the Xperia L battery has not been disclosed, but it should be capable of delivering up to 8 hours and 30 minutes of continuous talk time, or 7 hours and 36 minutes of video playback. Android 4.1 Jelly Bean comes out of the box, sprinkled with a number of interface tweaks on top.
Sony has not mentioned anything about pricing, but has promised to release the Sony Xperia L on the market within the second quarter of 2013. To learn more about it, just check out the photos and videos embedded below!
- Display 4.3" 480 x 854 pixels
- Camera 8 MP / 0.3 MP VGA front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Plus, Dual-core, 1000 MHz
- Storage 8 GB + microSDHC
- Battery 1750 mAh(9.1h 3G talk time)

Specs not similar to Sola. While Sola had dual core A9 processor, this one has dual core Krait and the GPU is Adreno 305 which is similar to Adreno 225 used in last year's flagship phones. Overall, the performance will be about 2x the performance of Sola.

The Xperia Z defiantly has much smaller bezels compare to the iPhone 5, the iPhones has some of the biggest top and bottom bezels around. Through this Xperia L has large bezels too, it is 4.3", but looks very similar size to the 4.6" Xperia SP just announced as well
