Sony quietly presented the Xperia 8 Lite
Sony quietly presented the Xperia 8 Lite in its home country, Japan, without any pompous presentation. The novelty is very similar to the Xperia 8, which was presented at the end of last year. It also has a lot of similarities to the Xperia 10, but the cameras are different.
The Sony Xperia 8 Lite features a 6-inch FULL HD + 21: 9 LCD display with huge top bezels. It is powered by the Octa-Core Snapdragon 630 14nm mobile platform, coupled with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage that can be expanded up to 512GB by microSD. It has a metal frame and the glass front and back panels are protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 6 glass. There is also a fingerprint scanner mounted on the side.
As for the optics, it is equipped with a dual rear camera which is a combination of 12MP (primary with an aperture of f / 1.8) + 8MP (secondary with an aperture of f / 2.4). The product page is not clear on what the secondary camera does, as there are references to background blur and x2 optical zoom.
Then the front camera is an 8MP f / 2.0 device. It supports 21: 9 aspect ratio photo and video capture, portrait, 4K video recording, 120fps slow motion, and electronic video stabilization (EIS). It works on Android 9 Pie and finally, it is equipped with a 2870mAh battery with adaptive charging.
