Sony Xperia Neo L launched, priced at Php12,490

Along with the Xperia Ion that was launched yesterday, Sony Mobile Philippines also introduced the update to the Xperia Neo V from last year — the Xperia Neo L.

The Xperia Neo L seems to have the same exact hardware configuration as the Neo V (L stands for large, I was told).

Yugatech 728x90 Reno7 Series

The only two updates Sony made to the handset over its predecessor is the larger screen (4.0″ vs. 3.7″) and the update to Android 4.0.3 ICS.

The rest, seems the same.

Sony Xperia Neo L specs:
4.0″ IPS LCD @ 480×854 pixels, 245ppi
Qualcomm MSM8255 Snapdragon S2 1.0GHz
Adreno 205 Graphics
1GB internal storage (300MB usable)
up to 32GB via microSD
3G/HSDPA 7.2Mbps
WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, DLNA
Bluetooth 2.1
GPS w/ aGPS support
5MP autofocus camera
720p video recording
VGA front-facing camera
Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich
Li-Po battery 1500mAh
121 x 61.1 x 12.2mm (dimensions)
131.5 grams (weight)

The Neo L is slightly thinner compared to the Neo V but at 12.2mm, it still feels a bit chunky. The design is a little different too.

The Sony Xperia Neo L will be available in stores next week and in two colors (white and black) with a suggested retail price of Php12,490.

    Its TFT LCD panel, not an IPS one.
    May surplus yang Sony Mobile na parts na galing sa 2011 phones nila.
    4 inch TFT LCD = from Xperia PLAY
    Yung four hardware keys pa lang Xperia PLAY na agad maiisip mo.
    S2 Snapdragon = last year chipset nila (Xperia arc, PLAY, lahat ng 2011 smartphones nila)
    1 GB NAND Flash = again same as last year, (380MB user accessible) limited apps install kahit move to sd pa natin. Google Chrome (50MB+ app storage) pa lang hindi pwede imove sa sd card, unless rooted ka.
    Dapat priced nila to ng nasa 9,990 para bumenta.

      I agree. I am not highly recommending this phone. The 300mb usable memory is a significant disadvantage. this is the same case with my Xperia PLAY. you’ll soon get the annoying” low in space” warning since somebAndroid apps tend to reside in the phone memory. sucks. Adreno 205 and 512mb RAM is quite restrictive for the resource hungry apps of 2012.

    So it really only has the screen going for it.

    They even omitted the camera shutter button.

    Just when I thought manufacturers have graduated from limited storage (been seeing phones with 4GB internal, and about half of that is usable).

    300mb of usable memory is just sad.
