Sony Xperia Neo L Announced For China

Sony has unveiled a new Android 4.0 based mobile, but currently, it is only planned to be available in China.

The Xperia Neo L is the successor to the Neo, and the Neo V models. It is set to arrive with a 4 inch display, whilst measuring in at 120.0 x 61.0 x 12.8 mm - making it considerably smaller than the iPhone 4S, but not thinner.

The handset also has 512MB of RAM and 1GB of internal storage, with the option of up to 32GB via a microSD card. On board is a 5megapixel camera, capable of 720p video capture with a front facing VGA variant. The mobile will be equipped with the song xLoud audio enhancement technology, promising superior audio compared to the other smart phones on the market.

Sony's Nero L will run the Ice Cream Sandwich platform; this is the latest operating system offering from Google. This features a new browser, which has the ability to force websites to show its desktop version, and has the option of incognito browsing.

Another cool feature is the ability to decline a call and send a text, from a selection of pre-set text messages ('i'll call you later' etc), all from the home screen.
