Sony Xperia SL breaks cover in leaked images, confirms unremarkable specs

Live snaps of a new Sony smartphone, the Xperia SL, have surfaced online, courtesy of an anonymous leakster.

The good folk over at GSM Arena have got their mitts on five close-ups of what basically looks the Xperia S, with the only improvement being that it packs a slightly – and we really mean 'slightly' - brawnier 1.7GHz processor.

And unlike the 'SL' sobriquet probably suggests, it’s not larger, either, and sports the same 4.3-inch LCD display as its older sibling and the same, though still impressive, 12-megapixel camera.

The good news is that it runs the slightly newer Ice Cream Sandwich edition of Android rather than creaky old Gingerbread, which the Xperia S operates on. Since the processor has improved, we expect a Jelly Bean update is very much a possibility.

If Sony’s made any other improvements at all, we’ll probably find out at its press gathering a couple of days before IFA 2012, where it’s also expected to unveil the LT29i ‘Hayabusa’. Keep ‘em peeled.
