Sony has finally revealed their newest entry-level smartphone, the Sony Xperia L4.
As a follow-up to last year’s Xperia L3 which was unveiled in Mobile World Congress, the Sony Xperia L4 features a new design and larger battery capacity. In addition, there’s also the Japanese company’s proprietary multi-window UI feature built-in.
The Sony Xperia L4 features a 6.2-inch HD+ screen with a tall 21:9 aspect ratio. On the inside, it’s powered by an octa-core MT6762 processor, 3GB of RAM, and 64GB of storage which can be expanded up to 512GB. Software-wise, the Sony Xperia L4 runs on Android 9.0 Pie.
There’s also a triple rear camera configuration which include a 13-megapixel f/2.0 primary shooter, 5-megapixel f/2.2 lens with 117-degree filed-of-viiew (FoV), and 2-megapixel f/2.4 sensor. For selfies, an 8-megapixel f/2.0 sensor with 78-degree FoV is used.
Although we mentioned that it has a bigger battery than its predecessor, it’s still not a considerable amount. The 3,580mAh capacity is way below today’s standards, as entry-level handsets usually start at around 4,000mAh nowadays.

The Sony Xperia L4 will be available in Blue and Black colors. Pricing and availability are unknown as of the moment. But if we’re going to base it on the previous iteration, it will likely be sold for around INR 15,500 (~Php11,000). Hopefully, Sony would consider lowering it down because this is definitely not midrange level hardware.
