Completely surprising, Sony launched the Xperia 8 Lite in Japan, a midranger that is probably positioned below the Xperia 10 II, and comes up with Dualcam and Snapdragon 630 in a tall 21: 9 Sony design with rather thick bezels above the display.
Only a few Sony fans had that on their screen. In Japan, a completely surprising new Xperia phone was launched, but it did not set any milestones, either in terms of design or features. It is a significantly slimmed-down Xperia 10 II (available from Amazon from 370 euros) and is quite appropriately called the Xperia 8 Lite. The 8.1 mm thin Sony smartphone, available in black and white, offers midrange fare in the classic Sony design with a 6-inch LC display with full HD + resolution in 21: 9 format. With Snapdragon 630, 4 GB of RAM and 64 expandable storage, the Xperia 8 Lite offers average food, the 2,870 mAh battery is even below average.
The Sony midranger is water and dust repellent according to IPX5 / IPX8 and also offers a headphone connection. The selfie cam in the thick edge above the display provides an 8 megapixel sensor, the dual cam on the back was based on a 12 megapixel sensor with an 8 megapixel telephoto shooter. The fingerprint sensor is on the side. In Japan, the Xperia 8 Lite costs 29,800 yen, which is the equivalent of around 238 euros. It is currently not known whether the low-cost Xperia will also come to Europe.
