Sony Mobile has unveiled another addition to its growing lineup of Xperia handsets with the Xperia SL, the heir to its Xperia S flagship smartphone.
Currently listed as ‘coming soon’ on the Japanese smartphone maker’s website, the Sony Xperia SL essentially is an upgrade from the Xperia S.
It features a more powerful and faster 1.7 GHz dual-core processor and a preloaded Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) operating system. The current Xperia S comes with a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor and Android 2.3 Gingerbread out of the box.
Unfortunately, that’s all the upgrade we could squeeze out from the Xperia SL, as it still carries the same 4.3-inch touchscreen display, a 12.1-megapixel rear-facing camera with 1080p HD video recording, a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera, DLNA and HDMI connectivity, 32 GB of built-in storage (microSD expandable) and a 1750 mAh battery. The phone will come in four variant colors: black, pink, silver and white.
While details on its availability and pricing are still unknown, the Sony Xperia SL is expected to launch during the IFA 2012 in Berlin next week.
