Sony unveils Xperia SL, sports dual-core 1.7GHz Snapdragon S3 processor, 4.3-inch scratch-resistant

Sony have just unveiled the successor to their Xperia S smartphone, the Xperia SL. The latest Xperia SL sports a 4.3-inch scratch-resistant screen with a resolution of 1280x720, a dual-core 1.7GHz Snapdragon S3 processor and runs Google's Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS.

Filling out the specs, we find the Xperia SL baking in a 12.1-megapixel rear-facing camera with 16x digital zoom and pulsed LED flash, up to 8 hours and 30 minutes of talk time, 420 hours of standby, 25 hours of music-listening time, and video playback time of up to 6 hours and 30 minutes. All of this finds its way into a phone that ways just 144g, or 5.1 ounces.

 

It feels like it's come out of nowhere, but it doesn't really have anything that can compete with the already-here Samsung Galaxy S III, Galaxy Note, HTC One XL, Apple's iPhone 4S, and various other high-end smartphones. But, for a Sony phone, it definitely doesn't look too shabby at all.
