Sony has announced an entry to mid-range, large-screen smartphone that offers numerous design motifs Xperia handsets are known for but won't break the bank.
The smartphone follows Sony's design language of near bezel-less displays.
The Xperia L1 features a 5.5-inch sized LCD display with 720 x 1280 HD resolution, which results in a rather low pixel density figure of 267 pixels per inch. Since the handset doesn't really have any strong USP, the Xperia L1 will only be sold in select regions such as the Middle East.
Under the hood is a processor signed by MediaTek, specifically the MT6737T four-core 1.4 GHz. It has 2GB RAM, 16GB of internal storage and an expandable to up to 256GB via the micro SD card slot. The actual specs that the Sony Xperia L1 will bring remain sketchy for now though some of those standout features are likely to be still around with some improvements.

If we do it, that's a success, and if we don't we will be disappointed but we will not stop working or believing in this project". To get a point at Manchester City for (any) team in the world is absolutely OK.
There's a 13-megapixel camera on the rear, 5-megapixel snapper on the front and it has Bluetooth 4.2 and NFC connectivity.
Speaking further, the device runs on Android 7.0 Nougat and is backed by a 2,620 mAh battery, which is claimed by the company to be featuring Sony's very own STAMINA mode for battery saving. In terms of dimensions, the smartphone measures 151 x 74 x 8.7mm and weighs in at a hefty 180 grams.
The Xperia L1 also plugs in via USB Type-C, which means you can connect the charging cable either way around. Color options include Black, White, and Pink. Unfortunately, Sony has chosen not to announce the price of this mid-low-end device, although it has said that it will have an "affordable" cost. No word yet on exactly when though.
