Sony Upcoming Mobiles 2020- Sony Xperia L4 price in Pakistan
Japanese manufacturer Sony shows the next generation of its Xperia smartphones. Fans should be particularly happy about a recurring feature.
Sony introduces its new generation of smartphones with the Xperia 1 II, Xperia 10 II and Xperia L4 models. Originally, the producers wanted to hold the release at the Mobile World Congress 2020, which, however, due to the health emergency by the Covid 19 virus was canceled. With the three new cell phones, the manufacturer wants to take on big names like Apple, Samsung and Huawei.
New low-budget smartphone is now also film-compatible
The Sony Xperia L4 is located in the low-budget range and is the direct successor to the Xperia L3. The biggest innovation is probably the 6.2-inch display, which is now also installed in the typical Sony 21: 9 display. This was previously reserved for the middle and upper class. This should be a pleasure especially for film fanatics, because these are usually also in 21: 9 format. However, the resolution of just HD + does not promise record-breaking sharp images.
The hardware inside is also not particularly spectacular: a Mediatek chip from the lower performance class, paired with three gigabytes of RAM, should be sufficient for the essentials, but not more. In return, the 3,580 mAh battery promises a good runtime, since the weak hardware should not consume a lot of energy.
Furthermore, Sony is now using a triple camera on the back of the device, whereby in addition to the main lens, an ultra-wide angle and a bokeh lens for depth information is installed. Somewhat disappointing: Google’s rule that all new smartphones must be based on Android 10 Q, the manufacturer somehow manages to do so and will deliver its new Xperia L4 with Android 9 Pie. An update to Android 10 Q is also uncertain. The Xperia L4 is expected to be available from April for around 33,359 pkr.
Sony Xperia 10 II: The manufacturer continues to tinker with the middle class
Similar to what you are used to from cameras from the brand, the two new smartphones Xperia 1 II and Xperia 10 II are simply provided with an “II” (read: Mark two) to indicate the next generation of the respective device. The Sony Xperia 10 II is the new mid-range smartphone from the Japanese manufacturer that still comes with a 6 inch screen with Full HD + and in 21: 9 format. However, Sony is now installing OLED for the first time in the middle class, instead of an LC panel.
The battery capacity has also changed: 3,600 mAh instead of far below 3,000 mAh, as was the case with the predecessor. This should now ensure a significantly longer runtime per battery charge. Furthermore, the smartphone is now protected against the ingress of water and dust according to the IP 68 standard.
In terms of performance, Sony has brought the device to the latest mid-range status and is now installing a Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 mid-range chip, paired with four gigabytes of RAM and an internal memory of 128 gigabytes. That should be enough for most users.
The camera system on the back also consists of three lenses and, in addition to a main lens, also comes with a telephoto zoom and an ultra-wide angle. The price of the Sony Xperia 10 II is around 61,704 pkr and is expected to be available from May this year.
Sony Xperia 1 II: a painfully missing feature is returning
The manufacturer’s new flagship is the Sony Xperia 1 II. Like the other two smartphones, the smartphone comes with a 21: 9 display, but in this case with the 4k resolution also known from Sony. This only makes sense to a limited extent, not least because the difference between a QHD and a UHD resolution on this display size is almost undetectable to the human eye. But it drains a lot of energy and demands more power from the GPU. Sony does not use 90 Hertz, so users must continue to live at 60 Hertz.
The battery has a capacity of 4,000 mAh and is either charged with 18 watts or wirelessly. This battery size is also needed: In addition to the built-in Snapdraon 865 CPU with eight gigabytes of RAM, the standard 5G also pulls the battery properly. Sony decides to use an external module instead of the 5G modem built into the processor, which is known to require a lot of energy. In addition, the device is only single SIM capable if a micro SD card can also be inserted. Consequently, Sony does not use a combination slot.
The Sony Xperia 1 II plays audio via dual speakers. But if you prefer to use your headphones, you can now look forward to it, because Sony listens to the feedback from its customers, who apparently painfully missed the 3.5 mm jack. He is on board again in the Xperia 1 II.
Above all, the price can keep up with the competition
The Japanese manufacturer has made some improvements, especially for the camera, and is particularly proud of the cooperation with the camera manufacturer Zeiss. The Xperia 1 II has real Zeiss lenses built in, which is to minimize the lens flare effect when taking pictures against the sun with an additional coating. Like the Xperia 10 II, Sony also uses a main camera, a telephoto lens, an ultra-wide angle and a ToF sensor. In particular, according to their own statement, they “focused” on the autofocus, which is now not only supposed to work much faster, but also supports eye tracking for people and some animals. This feature is already known from real cameras and currently works in the Xperia 1 II with 20 measurements per second.
The interface of a new camera app from Sony is also already known from a real camera. This simulates the interface, including the icon design, of a real Sony Alpha camera and is intended to be particularly popular with users of such a camera. Support for RAW recordings will come via update.
Not only in terms of hardware, but above all with its price, the Sony Xperia 1 II wants to compete with the very big ones on the Apple, Samsung and Co. market. The manufacturer demands a whopping 199,951 pkr for the device. Depending on the configuration, this can also result in an amount of 233,304 pkr. The device is expected to be available from June 2020.
