Sony Xperia L1 might not arrive in some markets until early June
Unveiled about two weeks ago, Sony's Xperia L1 was a complete surprise considering the Japanese company announced four new smartphones less than a month before.
Although Sony has been pretty clear about the availability of the Xperia L1, the phone might not hit the shelves until June. Originally slated for an April release in Europe, North America, Latin America, the Middle East, Africa, and Asia, the Xperia L1 is now expected to arrive in June in some countries.
At least one retailer in the UK, Clove now offers customers the chance to register their interest towards the Xperia L1 and be notified when the smartphone is available for purchase. According to Clove, the first stock is expected to hit the shelves in early June.
Unfortunately, the UK retailer doesn't offer any details about the price yet, and Sony has been pretty vague when it unveiled the smartphone saying that it will be “affordably priced.”
On the bright side, customers who decided to go for the Xperia L1 via Clove will be given the option to choose from different colors: Black, White, and Pink.
To recap, the Xperia L1 is a mid-range smartphone that runs Android 7.0 Nougat. It's powered by a 1.5GHz quad-core MediaTek MT6737 processor, 2GB RAM and 16GB expandable storage (up to 256GB).
Also, the handset sports a 5.5-inch display with HD (720p) resolution, a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera, which goes along with a secondary 5-megapixel camera on the front for selfies.
Obviously, there's a chance that other countries will get the Xperia L1 slightly earlier, but it looks like UK customers won't be able to get one until June.
