Have been wondering where the Sony Xperia L may arrive? It is your lucky day today as we have more news about its possible destination. The phone was just spotted at the FCC and chances are that it will be available in the US. We also hear that it will land up north too, with a number of Canadian carriers getting ready to start selling the device. However, we have no clue which of the US service providers will eventually offer the handset.
Sony Xperia L Smartphone – Overview
The FCC filing reveals that the Sony Xperia L features 3G HSPA support compatible with AT&T, Straight Talk and T-Mobile, so for the time being, these three carriers are the most probable option. If you were hoping that “L” in the name is suggestive of LTE connectivity, you may feel a little disappointed. The handset is not equipped with 4G LTE radio, meaning that you will have no better alternative than 3G speed.
The Sony Xperia L is by all means a mid-range offering featuring a 4.3-inch display with a WVGA resolution which work out to a pixel density of 228 ppi. The phone is powered by a dual-core 1 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Plus MSM8230 processor with Adreno 305 for graphics.
The phone offers 1 GB of RAM and 8 GB of internal memory. While all these specs are nothing to be excited about, there is one piece of hardware worth commenting on. Sony decided to focus on photographic experience and equipped the device with an 8-megapixel camera with Exmore RS sensor. The unit has an HDR mode, just like the flagship smartphone Xperia Z, and is capable of recording 720p video.
