We heard a new Xperia phone is coming but we never really thought about when it would arrive or from what series. We’re starting the week with a surprise from almost four years ago–the Sony Xperia L1. So is this a new phone series? Not exactly but we were introduced to the Sony Xperia L back in 2013. Definitely, this L1 is a new model but we can’t help notice the “L” name. We’re guessing Sony Mobile just revived the series and the L1 is only one of the first L phones.

The Sony Xperia L1 is another mid-range phone that is powered by mid-range specs like a 5.5-inch touchscreen display, 720 x 1280 resolution, 1.45GHz quad-core MediaTek MT6737T processor, 2GB RAM, 16GB onboard storage, microSD card slot for exapansion (up to 256GB), 13MP main camera, 5MP selfie shooter, and a 2620mAh non-removable battery.

Phone already runs Android 7.0 Nougat OS out of the box and offers dual SIM support plus the usual 3G/4G LTE, WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, and NFS. This one still comes equipped with a headphone jack.
