Sony has launched a new mid-range smartphone in India. The Sony Xperia L2 is priced at Rs. 19990 and will go on sale from the 5th of February on all major online and offline retailers. The Xperia L2 was announced at CES 2018 held in January. After making its way to the US market, Sony has launched it in the Indian market.
At a price of Rs. 19990, the Xperia L2 enters the highly competitive mid-range price segment in India. Smartphones like the Moto X4 and Xiaomi Mi Max 2 are priced similarly to the Xperia L2. Even at a price of under Rs. 15000, there are fan favourites like the Honor 7X and Xiaomi Mi A1 that are still going strong.
Xiaomi has already announced that it will be launching a new mid-range smartphone in India on the 14th of February. While many speculate it will be the Redmi 5, there are high chances that the Redmi Note 5 could be launched. This means that the Sony Xperia L2 has tough competition from smartphones in the same price segment as well as slightly less priced phones.
Sony Xperia L2: Specifications
The Sony Xperia L2 branches out from the now defunct Xperia E series. It features the similar ‘loop surface’ design of old Xperia smartphones.
The Xperia L2 has a 5.5-inch IPS LCD display with a 1280 x 720 px resolution.
Under the hood, the smartphone has the MediaTek MT6737T chipset, 3GB of RAM and 32GB of onboard storage which is expandable up to 256GB via a microSD card. The fingerprint sensor has now been moved to the back of the phone and is placed centrally, right below the camera. This is different to what the previous Xperia devices have had. Sony has launched a lot of smartphones with the fingerprint sensor housed inside the home button.
Powering the smartphone is a 3300 mAh battery with Qnovo Adaptive Charging technology, Stamina mode and fast charging support. In a move similar to Samsung’s, the Xperia L2 will run Android 7.1 Nougat out of the box. This is disappointing for a smartphone launching in February 2018 and even more so, because Sony has already launched smartphones running Android 8 Oreo.
The Sony Xperia L2 has a 13MP camera with an f/2.0 aperture on the back. To the front of the device is an 8MP camera with an f/2.4 aperture equipped with a 120º FOV wide-angle lens.
