Sony announced a new budget smartphone again in March, dubbed the Sony Xperia L1 Smartphone. And while we’re waiting for it to hit the streets in the UK next month, it is changed into available for purchase in the US, in unlocked form.
The Sony Xperia L1 Smartphone has launched at Amazon and Best Purchase. Pricing is ready at $199.99 for the unlocked Smartphone, with black, white, and pink colour options available.
As its price implies, this is not the most high-end smartphone out there, not by a long shot. Nevertheless, it does come with a “borderless” (obviously only on the sides) 5.5-inch 720p display, a 13-MP rear camera and a 5-MP front camera with a 24mm wide-angle lens, and a 2,620 mAh battery.
It is powered by MediaTek’s MT6737T Processor, featuring a 1.45 GHz quad-core Cortex-A53 CPU, Mali-T720MP2 GPU, and 2GB of RAM. Internal storage is 16GB, expandable through microSD cards. The phone runs Android 7.0 Nougat.
Shaping out the feature set is NFC, 4G LTE, USB Type-C, and Sony’s Xperia Smartphone Actions. With this software feature, the Sony Xperia L1 Smartphone will learn how you use your phone and adapt to it. For example, if the phone recognises that you regularly turn on a blue light filter and Do Not Disturbance mode before you go to bed.
While the Sony Xperia L1 Smartphone is an entry-level device, it does have some nice features to offer for people that are in the market for a budget unlocked phone. The inclusion of reversible USB-C is a helpful contact, and the thin face bezels should help to make the Sony Xperia L1 Smartphone and its large screen a bit easier to hold.
