Xperia Neo L Announced
Now this one is rather interesting. Just when we were getting tired of Sony’s new design, the company decided to revive one of its older devices, one that dates back to the not-so-distant Sony Ericsson era. The new Xperia Neo L has old looks, an old and familiar name and is actually based on the popular Xperia Neo V design, albeit with some cues borrowed from the Xperia PLAY, except there’s no sliding joypad here.
If you like how the phone looks, chances are you might want to check out some of the Xperia Neo V Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich from the factory, while even the range-topping Xperia S is waiting for an update.
Sensation models have exhibited faster performance after they got updated, so there’s no real reason to worry about the hardware not being powerful enough. The Xperia Neo L has a large 4-inch screen with a resolution of 480×854 pixels, a 5-megapixel camera at the back that can shoot up to 720p videos, and a secondary one as well. Although the phone looks identical to the Neo V, it is in fact a bit thinner.
For now China is the only market that’s been confirmed to receive the new phone, so it’s hard to say whether it’ll end up in Europe eventually, or Sony will decide to focus on the latest line-up.
