Along with the Xperia Ion that was launched yesterday, Sony Mobile Philippines also introduced the update to the Xperia Neo V from last year — the Xperia Neo L.
The Xperia Neo L seems to have the same exact hardware configuration as the Neo V (L stands for large, I was told).
The only two updates Sony made to the handset over its predecessor is the larger screen (4.0″ vs. 3.7″) and the update to Android 4.0.3 ICS.
The rest, seems the same.
Sony Xperia Neo L specs:
4.0″ IPS LCD @ 480×854 pixels, 245ppi
Qualcomm MSM8255 Snapdragon S2 1.0GHz
Adreno 205 Graphics
1GB internal storage (300MB usable)
up to 32GB via microSD
WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, DLNA
GPS w/ aGPS support
5MP autofocus camera
720p video recording
VGA front-facing camera
Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich
Li-Po battery 1500mAh
121 x 61.1 x 12.2mm (dimensions)
131.5 grams (weight)
The Neo L is slightly thinner compared to the Neo V but at 12.2mm, it still feels a bit chunky. The design is a little different too.
The Sony Xperia Neo L will be available in stores next week and in two colors (white and black) with a suggested retail price of Php12,490.
