Sony Xperia neo L with Android 4.0 ICS unveiled

Sony has revealed the new Xperia neo L, its first ever Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich handset. While some might be expecting something impressive like a dual-core processor, you might be in for a disappointment.

The Xperia neo L looks like a entry level device running one a single core 1GHz Qualcomm MSM8255 processor, 512MB RAM with 1GB of storage that’s expandable via microSD. Over at the front, it comes with a 4.0″ TFT screen that pushes 854×480 pixels. There’s a a 5MP camera that shoots 720p HD videos and a front facing VGA camera. Design wise, it certainly looks like a Sony Xperia PLAY without the game pad slider. The full white paper can be download here.

The Xperia neo L was launched in China along with the rest of the new Xperia devices such as the Xperia U, Xperia P and Xperia sola. Availability internationally and pricing is yet to be known.

With the Xperia neo L running on the latest Android 4.0.3, we can expect the existing Xperia NXT Series line up being upgraded soon. At the same time, Sony has also proven that Ice Cream Sandwich does work on a single core 1GHz device. Let’s hope they will keep their word on upgrading all 2011 Xperias.
