And if you recall, one particular and popular brand Sony also revealed four new smartphones in 2017 which are the Xperia XZ Premium, Xperia Xzs, Xperia XA1, and Xperia XA1 Ultra. With already four phones down it looks like the company is not stopping there. According to the reports that we are getting Sony might be gearing up to launch yet another new smartphone.
In fact, according to a recent report from a Russian website, a new Sony Android handset with model number G3312 has just been certified by telecommunications regulators in Russia.
Further, the website states that the new Sony smartphone will not be part of the Xperia X series but most probably will be a smartphone in the L series. The report states that it could be dubbed as Xperia L1.
