Sony announces budget Xperia L1

Posted:  March 20, 2017   By:    7 comments   

It has been a while since Sony released a new budget smartphone. After a year of focusing solely on the X series, Sony has just announced the Xperia L1. This looks like an overdue successor of the original Xperia L from 2013.

The Xperia L1 appears to slot below its Xperia XA and its newer Xperia XA1. The front gets a larger 5.5″ HD 720p display and it runs on a modest MediaTek quad-core MT6737T processor that’s clocked at 1.45GHz.

The rest of the specs are nothing much to shout about as it gets just 2GB of RAM and 16GB of expandable storage. For taking pictures, it gets a 13MP f/2.2 main camera while the front sports a 5MP f/2.2 shooter.

Out of the box, it runs on Android 7.0 Nougat and is powered by a 2,620mAh battery. The Xperia L1 exterior looks like any other Sony Xperia device but it gets some subtle curves around the sides. This new budget device will be available beginning end of April and it comes in either white, black or pink colours.

Loves the brand Sony, but this “budget” phone will still cost more than a mighty redmi note 4. Believe it or not, the whole floor around 30 people in my office none of them r using a Sony phone excepts me still holding my precious z1c. Lets hope that my favourite brand doesn’t bankrupt in MY.


I bet it’s going to auto off like the Xperia M5. Now I see all Sony phone sucks. What a waste of money.


SOny will go out soon together with HTC brand.

Never ever change their phone style…………….still same boxy shape…….either too expensive or too cheapskate with inferior components.

Follow the Chinese brands in manufacturing phones.


    Follow chinese > copy innovation


I really hope this is a least i get an easy "small" phone to bring around without bocor my pocket to buy a short battery expensive iphone…Big 5.5inch all peoples will buy redmi note lah cheap with good specs.Sony please make a S1 4.7inch with the same spec and sell it around rm800.


    4.7" with 720p is optimal resolution but don't know why manufacturer keep releasing 5.5" phone with that crappy resolution. If you want 720p, keep the size small.


Soya Cincau, no RRP from Sony? Will this even be launched in MY, given that there are so many budget devices already in the market that offers better value for money.
