Sony abandoned the competition in the low range a few years ago to focus on the terminals that brought more value and revenue. As a strategy it makes sense but it is true that in these categories it is more difficult to fight with giants like Apple or Samsung.
In recent months we are seeing how despite a reduction in its catalog the Japanese firm re-designs smartphones of all prices, from the expected Xperia XZ4 to the latest Xperia 10, formerly known as Xperia XA3.
Today we know of a new member of its catalog, a low-end mobile that shares a certain design with its older brothers but does not bet on the most distinctive feature of these, the screen with a 21: 9 ratio.
This is the Sony Xperia L3
This terminal has a screen of 5.7 inches and resolution HD +, 1440 x720. The processor is not yet known but the RAM it will have, 3 GB. Its internal storage will be 32 GB and can be expanded using a microSD.
The rear camera will be dual, with a main sensor of 13 Mpx and a secondary sensor of 2 Mpx. It will have a fingerprint sensor but it will be placed on the side, not in the rear area.
Its battery is 3300 mAh and will have a USB C port (finally a low range with this connector) and 3.5 mm audio jack on the top. It will come with Android 8.1 Oreo, something strange since Pie has been in the market for several months. As is customary in Sony mobiles, it will feature NFC.
Price and availability
The Sony Xperia L3 will be priced at about 199 euros and can be purchased in gray, silver and gold. It will presumably be announced at the MWC Sony event, where we will try to make a contact with him.
