Sony Xperia L was released with Xperia SP. In case of Xperia L the focus was on the camera but in this phone Xperia SP, the phone emphasize on its appearance and specially the functionalities of the notification light in the transparent bar at the bottom of the phone which has really impressed me. In Xperia SP, the notification light will follow the color of the equalizer of the music track being played on the phone, moreover you can also assign the color of the notifications to the contacts on your phone or I must say that you can use this feature to categorize the group of users on the basis of the notification light.
Sony Xperia SP Specifications and Key Features
Another point to be noted in this case is that though both the phones, Xperia L and SP have ‘Exmor RS sensor’ (described ahead) and HDR feature but Xperia L has the ability of HD video capturing whereas Xperia SP does not have this feature. Exmore RS sensor is the world first CMOS image sensor which has the special ability to give you the fabulous combination of images with high quality but compact size. The camera used in Xperia SP is 8 MP which has auto-focus, face detection and image stabilization.
The screen size is 4.6 inches which is bigger than Xperia L (4.3 inches) and it has resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels which is approximately 319 pixels per inches (quite close to the retina display offered in Apple iPhones). The display is of capacitive touch and Xperia also offers the Glove Touch where you can use the phone with your gloves on.
The power is powered by Qualcomm ARM Krait Dual-core 1.7 GHz processor supported by 1GB RAM which is again decent for handling the application and few games on Android 4.1.2 Jellybean used on this phone. The battery backup is 2350 mAh which is better than Xperia L but not too good. The internal storage of the phone is 8GB out of which 5.8 GB is accessible by the user to install their applications and do other stuff but can be further extended up to 32GB. The connectivity features are again impressive as it has supports for 2G, 3G, 4G, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, MHL cable support, NFC, Micro SD card slot and 3.5 mm jack slot for the headsets.

Xperia SP in terms of pricing it expected to land above Samsung Galaxy Grand because it is lighter, thinner, has better processor attached to its heart and though the size of the screen is small but the battery strength is more, which leads to the that Xperia SP will have much better battery backup as compared to Galaxy Grand. As of now we do not have any news on its launch and we will intimate you as soon as Sony announces about the same.
