Xperia SL launched by Sony silently | Specs can beat the iPhone 4S and Samsung SIII

The Xperia SL combines a 4.3-inch display with a 720p Bravia Engine powered display with a 1.7GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S3 chip and 1GB of RAM. Additionally, we get the same 12.1-megapixel camera from the Xperia S, a 1.3-megapixel front facing camera and 32GB of internal memory of which 26GB is available to the user.


The phone runs on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, which admittedly is not the latest version, but that’s a nuisance most people are already used to. Other frills include NFC connectivity, a HDMI out, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, USB and a 3.5mm jack.
