Sony’s website was recently updated to include a new smartphone, one that may be introduced at IFA 2012.  The smartphone is the revamped Sony Xperia SL, which is similar to the Xperia S in terms of design and features.  The main differences here occur in the hardware and software side as it boasts increased processing power and Android 4.0.

After many recent rumors, the Xperia SL is listed as coming soon, but Sony informs us of its 1.7GHz dual-core Snapdragon S3 processor, Android 4.0, 4.3 inch 1280 x 720 resolution display, 32GB on-board memory, and a sweet 12MP rear facing shooter.  I would personally be more excited about the Sony Xperia SL if it featured Android 4.1 out of the box, but nonetheless, the hardware is superb and the phone will suit photography enthusiasts well.  Lastly, it will launch in four different color variations including: Silver, Black, White, and Pink.

Hopefully, we will learn its price and availability during IFA 2012 when Sony is expected to introduce the Xperia SL.
