Sony announces Xperia SL, dual-core Snapdragon S3 1.7GHz, 4.3-inch touchscreen

Sony has quietly announced their Xperia SL through their global website. The Xperia SL is a dual-core Snapdragon 3 equipped smartphone packing a 1.7GHz processor and a 4.3-inch touchscreen. Engadget says that the SL is a slight refresh of the company’s Xperia S smartphone, and it looks like it – it looks extremely similar, and possibly the only difference between the S is the two additional colors offered for it. Thankfully, Sony is offering Google’s Android 4.0 ICS for the Xperia SL right off the bat, so you won’t have to worry about those pesky upgrade cycles if you do decide to pick it up if it ever comes here.
