We’ve already seen Sony’s Xperia SL in the wild, but today the Japanese manufacturer has finally made the elusive smartphone official. An exact release date isn’t announced, though the device is now listed on the company’s official website as “coming soon”. The Xperia SL serves as an updated version of Sony’s Xperia S handset, but don’t let that designation fool you. The SL packs an array of impressive specs, including a 1.7GHz Snapdragon S3 (MSM8260) processor, 4.3-inch screen with 1280 x 720 display and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. There’s also a front-facing camera for video chat, as well as a 12.1-megapixel rear camera with 16x digital zoom and pulsed LED flash. For those who are concerned with style, Sony has made the Xperia SL available in four unique color variations, including silver, black, pink and white.
Details are still scarce, however, we expect to hear much more about the smartphone at the company’s IFA press conference on Sunday, August 26th. There’s bound to be more devices announced next week, so be sure to stay tuned for the latest news.
