China to see release of Xperia Neo L smartphone

Another new handset has been announced by Sony, in the form of the ‘Xperia neo L’, a smartphone handset that is due to be initially released in China.

Coming in the same vein specification wise as the previously released Xperia Neo V, the Neo L features a 4 inch display, 1GHz CPU, 512MB RAM and a 720p capable 5.1MP camera. The handset also has a front facing VGA camera. The Neo L is slightly longer and thinner than the Neo V.

Pricing and exact release dates for the Neo L haven’t been confirmed by Sony as of yet however, the news that the Xperia Neo L will come preinstalled with Android 4.0 aka Ice Cream Sandwich should encourage potential (Chinese at least) buyers as this is the first time Sony intend to release a handset with ICS available out of the box.
