We've heard rumors of a Sony Xperia S successor before — dubbed the Xperia SL — and now we have some supposed specs and pictures courtesy of (often reliable) Chinese site ePrice. As seen above in the leaked renders, the new device looks to be identical to the Xperia S before it on the outside. There is a change in color selection, however, with silver and pink joining the previously-available black and white options. What's important is what's on the inside — the Xperia SL is said to be a spec bump, after all — and ePrice says we can expect a dual-core, 1.7GHz Qualcomm S3 MSM8260 processor. That's a bit better than the 1.5GHz chip in the Xperia S, and, thankfully, the rumors say that the SL will ship with Android 4.0.

Update: GSM Arena has been tipped with some real-life pictures of the device in its silver shell, and it looks pretty sleek.
