Sony launched its mid-range Sony Xperia L2 along with its Xperia X2 and XA2 Ultra back in January at CES. Sony doesn’t show much interest in the smartphone industry these days but it has not given up in smartphone production. Right before the launch of those devices, there were high definition leaks of the renders and 360-degree videos.
The same has happened this time too and today, factory-based CAD renders and 360-degree video of the alleged Xperia L3 have surfaced online. The device will be the successor of the Xperia L2 and is expected to be named the Xperia L3. Take a look at the 360-degree video below.
The alleged Xperia L3 is expected to feature a 5.7-inch display with HD+ resolution and will come with 18:9 aspect ratio which the company has finally switched to, in the recent past. The dimensions of the Xperia L3 are 153.8 x 71.9 x 9mm. The corners on the screen are rounded contrary to the traditional boxy design of Sony devices. The bezels on the device are noticeably thick despite featuring the new aspect ratio and have Sony branding on the chin of the device.
The top holds the necessary sensors, earpiece, and a selfie camera. The port used in the device is USB Type-C and luckily, it retains the 3.5mm headphone jack. The power button, volume rocker, and fingerprint sensor are mounted on the right side of the handset.
On the rear side, a vertically stacked dual camera setup is present with a separate LED flash. Sony and Xperia brand logos are also embedded on the back. The handset is expected to be launched around January similar to its predecessor. We expect more leaks regarding the key internal specifications of the device to happen soon as the launch date is getting near. Till then, stay tuned for further updates.
Also, in case you missed it, there was a similar leak about a different phone, Sony Xperia XA3, which showed a totally different back design.
