Sony, earlier this morning, has announced its new mid-range Sony Xperia SP smartphone with 4.6-inch (1080 x 720p) Bravia Engine 2 display, powered by a 1.7GHz Qualcomm dual-core Snapdragon Krait processor and Android version of 4.1.2 Jelly Bean on-board.
The new 4G LTE-enabled Xperia SP packs an 8MP rear snapper with 1080p video recording capability, alongside a VGA front-facer — all built into a classy aluminum frame that goes just 9.98mm thick and weighs around 155 grams. It has 8GB of internal memory, which is of course expandable via MicroSD card slot. There’s also NFC support in tow. The phone houses a big-enough 2370 mAh battery under the hood.
On a interesting note, the handset tacks on a transparent bar that you can set to light up in a number of colors.
Sony Xperia SP will go on sale in Q2 of this year (or by the end of June in Europe and Asia) with three color options — White, Black and Red.
The company hasn’t mentioned a price tag for the device. We’ll do a follow-up post, as we hear more.
