Sony has launched a new mid-range smartphone in the Indian market today. Dubbed as the Sony Xperia L2, it was first unveiled at the CES 2018 event last month. The smartphone is currently available across all the retail stores in two colours- Black and Gold. The phone is priced on a steeper side at Rs 19,990 and takes on the likes of Moto X4, Oppo F5, and Vivo V7+.
Sony Xperia L2 Specifications and Features
The Sony Xperia L2 comes with modest specifications, especially for the asking price of Rs 19,990. The smartphone flaunts a 5.5-inch HD display with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. Sony has added its Image Enhance technology in the L2 and the display is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass technology.
Internally, the phone is powered by a MediaTek MT6737T chipset which is coupled to Mali-T720 GPU and 3GB of RAM. The phone offers 32GB of internal storage which can be expanded up to 256GB with a dedicated microSD card. It boots Android 7.1.1 Nougat out of the box with slight modifications here and there.
At the rear of the phone, there's a fingerprint scanner, and the phone even has dual SIM support. It measures 9.8mm in thickness and has a weight of 178grams to it. Optics in the Xperia L2 includes a 13MP sensor at the back with LED flash, f/2.0 aperture, and 1/3.06-inch sensor. To the front, we have an 8MP selfie shooter with 120-degree wide-angle lens and f/2.4 aperture.
Connectivity options include 4G LTE, VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS, USB Type-C port, NFC, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. The phone is backed by a 3300mAh battery with Qnovo Adaptive Charging technology.
Sony Xperia L2 Pricing and Availability
Late last year, Sony impressed one and all with its pricing for the Xperia XZ1 flagship smartphone. But that joy seems to be only for a single smartphone as the Xperia L2 is an overpriced smartphone by a huge margin. We are getting the same specifications for below Rs 10,000. Sony should look after a new business model to succeed in the Indian market. The phone will be available in Black and Gold colour options at Rs 19,990. It seems like the L2 will be an offline-only model.
