We’re starting to see a disturbing trend these days where the price of smartphones are increasing to very ugly heights, where the cost of a smartphone is actually priced higher than a computer. What this means is that price has become an even bigger priority than before when shopping for smartphones.

In case you’d rather not spend $1,000 on a flagship model, it seems that Sony is more than happy to oblige as the company has since officially announced the Sony Xperia L3. This is the company’s lowest-end offering out of all the smartphones they announced at MWC 2019, which includes the Sony Xperia 1 and the Xperia 10 and 10 Plus.

In terms of specs and features, the Xperia L3 is pretty basic. We’re talking about a 5.7-inch HD+ display, and unlike the Xperia 1, 10, and 10 Plus, the Xperia L3 will be featuring a more standard 18:9 aspect ratio. The phone will also be powered by the MediaTek Helio P22 chipset, and will come with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage.

However despite it being an entry-level handset, the phone will be featuring a dual camera setup on the back where it combines a 13MP main camera module and a 2MP depth sensor, along with an 8MP front-facing shooter. Oddly enough the phone will only be launching with Android 8.0 Oreo and we’re not sure if there are plans to eventually upgrade it to Android 9.0 Pie, but then again we suppose you get what you pay for.
