Sony Mobile Extends Its Spring Lineup of Smartphones to Include the Xperia SP and Xperia L (Update)

Update (April 15, 2013): The Sony Xperia SP will be available at the Xperia Store, Sony Stores, Sony Centres and all telco operators from April 26 in black or white at S$598 (without contract).

Sony Mobile is adding two Xperia models - Xperia SP and Xperia L - to its 2013 lineup of smartphones. The two new mobile devices come with a suite of technologies including the latest camera features, NFC connectivity for One-touch function, Battery STAMINA Mode for extended battery life, and Sony's signature media apps for enjoying photos, music, movies, and games on the go.

Xperia SP

Equipped with a 4.6-inch HD Reality Display along with the Mobile BRAVIA Engine 2, the Xperia SP delivers a better viewing experience by analyzing your content type and adjusting the image automatically. The engine will make the adjustment by adding new real-time contrast optimization to the sharpness enhancement, high-quality colour management and noise reduction.

Enveloped in a precision-crafted co-moulded aluminum frame, the smartphone includes a color-changing "transparent element" with customizable illuminations that you can personalize to alert yourself if incoming calls and text messages. In addition, you can set the illuminations to pulse to the beat of your favorite music.

*Update on 03/04/2013: The Sony Xperia SP will be available in Singapore by end April. Pricing and exact launch date will be announced soon.

Xperia L

Stocked with an 8-megapixel camera incorporated with the Sony Exmor RS for mobile sensor technology, the integrated HDR (High Dynamic Range) ensures that both your photos and videos are captured clearly, even at night or against a strong backlight. The 4.3-inch Xperia L includes a dedicated camera key that goes from sleep to snap in just over a second even from a locked screen, ensuring that you'll catch any fleeting moment.
