The Sony Xperia L that was announced back in March 2013 and was later released in May on the same year is getting a successor. Apparently, it will be called the Sony Xperia L1.
About The Sony Xperia L1
According to reports, the Xperia L1 was just recently approved by telecommunication regulators in Russia. The phone itself is listed with the model number G3312 and it is expected to be announced later this year. As for its specs and features, sadly, there's no information about it yet. However, tech news sites are already on the lookout when new relevant info is available.
Though there is not much information yet about the Xperia L1, it doesn't mean that everything about the said smartphone is unknown. Aside from its name and model number, tech enthusiasts and consumers alike who are familiar with Sony phones know that its predecessor, the Xperia L is a mid-range smartphone. Meaning, one could speculate that it won't be as high-end compared to the latest Xperia XZ Premium. Instead, it will be a mid-range phone that could be more powerful than its predecessor.
But of course, one could argue that these "expectations" or "speculations" are mostly based on the fact that the Xperia L was a mid-range smartphone, and Sony might do something unexpected by making the Xperia L1 something even better. As of now, the best option would be to wait until further information about the said device will be revealed.
