Sony Xperia SL becomes official, gets 200Mhz bump

Sony has a slightly new handset as a successor to the Xperia S. The Sony Xperia SL is basically the Xperia S with a 200MHz bump in processor speed.

This introduction reminds us of the time when the then Sony-Ericsson also introduced the Xperia Arc S with a faster processor compared to the similarly-design Xperia Arc.

So that’s a bump from a dual-core 1.5GHz to a dual-core 1.7GHz.

Sony Xperia SL specs:
4.3-inch HD Reality Display @ 1280×720 pixels, 342ppi
Mobile Bravia Engine
Qualcomm S3 MSM8260
Snapdragon 1.7GHz dual-core processor
1.5GB built-in storage
32GB external storage (non-removable)
WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, DLNA
Bluetooth 2.1
NFC support
GPS w/ aGPS support
12.1MP Exmor R rear camera
1080p video recording
1.3MP front facing camera
720p video recording
micro-HDMI out
Li-Ion 1750mAh battery
Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich

The changes might not be that much but it seems coincidental that Google has also announced it is supporting the Xperia S under the AOSP (Android Open Source Project).

Meaning, the Xperia S will be getting some special treatment from Google the same way the Nexus line gets first dibs on the lastest Android updates.

    Yan ang strategy ng Sony, in my opinion. Hindi nila binubuhos/tinotodo lahat ng hardware for just one device. They’re saving it for their upcoming devices, codenamed “Mint” and “Hayabusa”.

    That’s why they have:
    Xperia S – 12 MP camera, sharpest display
    Xperia P – 8 MP camera, WhiteMagic Technology
    Xperia U – 5 MP camera, Dolby Sound Technology

    Xperia sola – Floating touch

    Xperia go and acro S – Water and dust resistant

    Can’t wait for their newest devices! :)
