Xperia L3 Brings Dual Rear Cameras To Sony's Budget End

Xperia L3 brings dual rear cameras to Sony's budget end

Sony Mobile announced the Xperia L3 (I3312, I4312, I4332) earlier this week at MWC, as its latest entrant into Sony's budget line-up. The Xperia L3 has a lot going for it, given the money, including dual rear cameras, a 5.7-inch 18:9 display and a 3300mAh battery.

Design-wise, the Xperia L3 does not adopt the super-tall skinny 'CinemaWide’ aspect ratio of the Xperia 1 and 10 series. Instead it uses a similar 2:1 aspect ratio as seen in its 2018 smartphones. The Xperia L3 uses a 5.7-inch LCD display with HD+ resolution of 720 x 1440 pixels. Corning Gorilla Glass 5 also features for durability.

A dual camera is found on the rear with a 13MP and 2MP combination. This means that you can use the Xperia L3 for bokeh portraits, although no optical zoom is supported. Low-light photography is featured with ISO support to 3,200.

The 13MP rear camera has a 1/3.0-inch sensor (1.12μm pixel pitch) with F2.2 wide-angle (80 degree) lens. The additional 2MP rear camera has a 1/5.0-inch sensor (1.75μm pixel pitch) with F2.4 wide-angle (82.4 degree) lens. Front selfie camera duties are taken care of by an 8MP 1/4.0-inch sensor (1.12μm pixel pitch) with F2.0 wide-angle (84-degree) lens.

The Xperia L3 is powered by a Mediatek Helio P22 MT6762 chipset, 3GB RAM and 32GB eMMC internal storage (a microSD memory card is also supported). Other features include a side-mounted fingerprint sensor, Bluetooth, NFC, USB Type-C and FM Radio. USB Power Delivery fast charging is also supported.

The Xperia L3 has dimensions of 154 x 72 x 8.9mm, and weighs 156 grams. The handset comes in three colours: Silver, Black and Gold. The Xperia L3 is launching with Android Oreo and is already available in Europe, where it is sold by the official Sony Store for £169/€199.
