Today, February 5, Sony launched its newest mid-range smartphone that goes by the name Sony Xperia L2 in India. Announced first at the CES 2018 last month, it is available with 4G VoLTE connectivity and powered by the MediaTek MT6737T SoC.
It is safe to say that Sony Xperia L2 has modest specifications. The display is 5.5-inch HD supporting 1280 x 720 pixels. Protected by Corning Gorilla Glass, the handset also bears Sony’s own Image Enhance technology.
Alongside the MediaTek chip, it packs Mali-T720 GPU. It offers 3GB RAM and 32GB internal memory that can be expanded up to 256GB, thanks to the dedicated microSD card slot. There are bits of modifications regarding the OS that’s Android 7.1.1 Nougat.
Weighing 178gm, Xperia L2 has 9.8mm of thickness. The fingerprint scanner is mounted on the rear panel. The rear camera has 13 MP sensor with a 1/3.06-inch sensor and f/2.0 aperture, with LED flash. Its front counterpart is the 8 MP selfie shooter having 120-degree wide-angle lens with f/2.4 aperture.
Apart from 4G VoLTE, the connectivity options are Bluetooth 4.2, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, GPS, NFC, USB Type-C and 3.5mm jack. The battery capacity is 3,300 mAh and it has Qnovo Adaptive Charging technology.
Priced at Rs. 19,990, Xperia L2 has two color variants: Gold and Black. It is likely to be an offline-only device from Sony and is available in all retail stores of India. It is a direct competitor of Moto X4, Vivo V7+, and Oppo F5.
Sony often comes up with overpriced mid-range smartphones, and this model is one example. Last year, its flagship Xperia XZ1 was rather impressive, considering both price and specs.
