Sony has announced its new smartphone, the Sony Xperia Neo L MT25i, company’s first handset to ship with Android 4.0/Ice Cream Sandwich onboard. A successor to the Neo and Neo V, the smartphone is a mid-range Android device and is destined for the Chinese market only (at the moment).
Borrows a few design elements from the Xperia PLAY, sans the PlayStation certified joypad, the Xperia Neo L comes equipped with a 4-inch (480 x 854 pixels) LCD display, a 1GHz single-core Snapdragon processor and an Adreno 205 graphics chip bundled with 512MB of RAM.
Carrying a 5MP rear snapper with LED flash and autofocus (capable of shooting 720p videos) at the back the phone also has a VGA front-facing camera. Other specs include only 1GB internal storage (but expandable up to 32GB via MicroSD card), and a 1500mAh battery makes it a surprising 12.2mm thick.
In the connectivity front, Sony Xperia neo L offer users Wi-Fi and Bluetooth support, along with HSPA and microUSB. The dimensions (120.0 x 61.0 x 12.8 mm) are also nearly the same apart from the 3mm thinner chassis.
In the meantime, there is no mention of an international release and prices in the pipeline for the Xperia neo L, though we’ll keep our ears to the ground for your knowing pleasure.
