The Sony Xperia L2 was launched at CES 2018 alongside the Xperia XA2 and XA2 Ultra. The device has arrived in Nepal for the price of Rs. 26,000 which makes it another new addition to the already impressive mid-range price segment.
The Sony Xperia L2 has slightly less bezels than what we usually see on Sony smartphones. However, unlike the 2018 trend of minimal bezels and an elongated display, this device has a little chunk of bezels on the top and bottom sandwiching the traditional 16:9 aspect ratio display. The Xperia L2 sports a 5.5-inch HD display which is a major disappointment as the most of the smartphones of this price segment have already picked up on the full HD resolution bandwagon. This display is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 4 for protection against scratches and drops.
In the internals, the Sony Xperia L2 comes with the same processor as its predecessor. It is powered by a quad-core MediaTek MT6737T processor coupled with Mali-T720MP2 and 3 GB of RAM. The inclusion of 3 GB of RAM and a very average processor in a smartphone priced Rs. 26,000 comes as a surprise as mid-range phones feature 4 GB of RAM these days and have a powerful chipset. The Xperia L2 runs on Android 7.1.1 Nougat with a few rumors hinting for an Oreo update. On the storage side of things, this device has 32 GB of onboard memory with an option to expand it up to 256 GB via a microSD card.
On the optics department, the Sony Xperia L2 has a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera with f/2.0 engraved on its back. Up front, an 8-megapixel front-facing camera with f/2.4 aperture sits providing a wide 120-degree angle field-of-view.
The Sony Xperia L2 has a 3,300 mAh battery. This device has a USB Type-C port on the bottom and a fingerprint sensor on the back.
