Sony is adding two new models to its Xperia range of devices: the mid-range Xperia SP (left) and the lower cost Xperia L. Featuring the BRAVIA Engine 2 and a co-molded aluminum frame, the former smartphone is a 4G device with a 4.6-inch HD Reality Display. The latter has a 4.3-inch FWVGA screen and dual-core processor.
Each smartphone has 8 megapixel cameras, NFC connectivity for One-touch function; battery STAMINA mode for extended
battery life; and Sony's media apps.
The new Xperia SP, running on Android 4.1.2 (Jelly Bean), and the Xperia L (right) will both be available worldwide from Q2 2013. Sony’s flagship smartphone, the Xperia Z which debuted at the CES in January, is already available.
In addition, the company’s Xperia Tablet Z will be globally available from Spring 2013. Featuring a 10.1” HD Reality Display and powered by Mobile BRAVIA Engine 2, the tablet is designed to be water and dust resistant. The tablet launched at this year’s Mobile World Congress.
Sony launched the Xperia brand in 2010, when it released the Xperia X10 smartphone.
