If you're thrilled by Sony's Xperia S, then you have another reason to get excited. The company has just revealed plans for an Xperia SL phone which sees the Xperia S and raises its 1.5GHz CPU up a notch to 1.7GHz. Of course both phone's processors are last generation Snapdragon S3 chips which while technically dual-core, are roundly trounced performance-wise by Qualcomm's current Snapdragon S4 processors.
The Xperia SL, however, will come in two additional colors (silver and pink) compared with the Xperia S's stock hues of black and white.
