It feels like Mobile World Congress has only just finished, but despite unveiling no less than four new phones there, Sony has just announced another one: the Xperia L1.

The smartphone looks quite similar to other Xperia handsets, which can be either a good or a bad thing depending on who you ask.

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. It is powered by a 1.45 GHz Quad-Core MediaTek 64-bit processor with Mali-T720 MP2 GPU. The chip is accompanied by 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal storage expandable through microSD cards up to 256 GB memory. There is also 3x Clear Image Zoom, but we don't really have high expectations from it as far as actual usability is concerned.

The Sony Xperia L1 is set to hit shelves late next month.

There Xperia L1 camera setup consists of a 13MP rear camera and a 5MP wide-angle front-facing sensor, which is a fairly standard low to mid-range specification. In terms of dimensions, the smartphone measures 151 x 74 x 8.7mm and weighs in at a hefty 180 grams. The Xperia L1 is reminiscent of the Xperia lineup but the side bezels have been thinned out and the phone employs a rounded frame for better ergonomics.

On the connectivity front, the Xperia L1 has dual SIM support, 4G LTE, Wi-Fi 802.11n, Bluetooth 4.2 with aptX, NFC, A-GPS, GLONASS, and USB Type-C. Color options include Black, White, and Pink. We are not left disappointed as Sony became the latest tech company to launch a new smartphone. No word yet on exactly when though.
