Sony Xperia L1 with 5.5-inch display, Android Nougat announced

Sony has quietly announced a new budget smartphone called the Xperia L1. The phone is the successor of 2013's Xperia L, and runs Android Nougat out-of-the box.

The Xperia L1 features 5.5-inch HD display and is powered by MediaTek's quad-core MT6737T processor. The phone comes with 2GB RAM and 16GB internal storage, which can be expanded via microSD card.

For photography, it gets 13MP f/2.2 rear camera with 3x Clear Image Zoom and an LED flash, and 5MP 24mm wide-angle lens f/2.2 selfie camera.

In terms of connectivity, there's Single SIM/Dual SIM support (depending on the market), 4G LTE, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.2, NFC, USB Type-C and GPS. A 2620mAh battery keeps the lights on back by Qnovo's Adaptive fast charging.

The Sony Xperia L1 will be available in Black, White and Pink colors, and will roll out to select markets in Europe, Middle-East, Africa, Asia, North America and Latin America starting late April. The pricing is yet to be revealed.

Interestingly, the Nokia 5 also offers somewhat similar specs, but comes with a slightly smaller display, Qulacomm processor and a bigger battery. It will be interesting to see how well the phones fare in the market, especially in India, where you get the same spec'd phone for around Rs. 8,000 ($107).
