Sony Xperia L1, a new entry-level phablet!
Sony surprisingly announcing a new smartphone, the Xperia L1, entry-level. Unfortunately, the specifications of this new phablet seem to have some weaknesses.
Sony continues its exploration of the alphabet with a new product in the entry-level, the Xperia L1. This is a brand new smartphone that does not seem to replace a previous generation.
The Xperia L1 is an entry-level phablet equipped with a 5.5-inch screen with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. The device includes a MediaTek MT6737T processor (4 cores Cortex A53 at 1.45 GHz), 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internet storage in eMMC format. It is compatible with LTE 4G networks in category 4 and has a battery of 2,620 mAh. These characteristics are clearly below what is being done on the market, even in the entry-level.
We still note some good points like the default installation of Android 7.0 Nougat, and that while competitors like Samsung continue to use Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Another good point, Sony seems to definitely abandon the micro-USB since the Xperia L1 uses USB Type-C. This type of connectivity thus continues to generalize, even in the entry-level.
-Price and Availability:
The Sony Xperia L1 will be released in spring 2017 and will be available in black, white and pink. Its price has not been announced yet.
