Sony started the year on a very high note by launching the first high-end flagship smartphone of 2013, the Xperia Z. With such a great smartphone out, you would expect Sony to be busy trying to get this smartphone to every corner of the planet but that is not what is on the company’s agenda at the moment as the company has just added two new smartphones to its portfolio, the Xperia SP and Xperia L.
Currently, Sony controls 4.5 % of the smartphone marketing, putting it fourth place just after Huawei but the company hopes that it will soon move into the third place. It was recently reported that Sony had plans to unveil much cheaper smartphone models to target most developing markets.
Back to the Xperia SP, it is a 4.6 inch 720p HD Reality Display smartphone that Sony is marketing as a mid range device. The Xperia SP will also support 4G LTE connectivity and will run on Mobile Bravia Engine 2. The Xperia SP will have a 1.7 GHz dual core processor with an 8 Megapixel rear facing camera that can record 1080p videos. The device will also have a notification light that changes color depending on who is calling you or what your phone is doing.
The Xperia L on the other hand will have a smaller screen, 4.3 inches to be exact with a resolution of 854 x 480 pixels and will have an 8 Megapixel camera that can record 720p videos, lower than that of the Xperia SP, the Xperia L will pack a 1 GHz processor.
Both phones will be available in three colors, white, black, or red finish.
