Sony launches Xperia SP with 4G LTE, 720p LCD and dual-core Krait processor
Sony on Monday added another Android smartphone to its Xperia series. Specifications of the smartphone, which has been named Xperia SP, suggests it will be a solid mid-range competitor. It runs on Android Jelly Bean 4.1 and comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8960Pro chipset. The dual-core processor clocks in at 1.7 GHz and has an Adreno 320 GPU. It has 8 GB internal storage with an external MicroSD card slot to increase the capacity further, 8MP rear camera capable of shooting 1080p video and a rather disappointing VGA front facing camera. The smartphone offers the usual Bluetooth, GPS/GLONASS, Wi-Fi and MHL-powered MicroUSB as well as NFC and LTE 4G.
Xperia SP is smaller in size than Xperia Z and has a 4.6” 720p Bravia Engine 2 LCD display which can analyse the content type and adjust the image accordingly. It shares few design elements with Xperia Z, and has a light bar which can act as a notification alert, as well as be used to pulse in time with your music, or match the colour in a photograph. The battery inside Xperia SP is a 2370mAh cell, and a Stamina mode aims to make the most of its energy reserves. It will be sold in three colours – red, black and white and will be available in the market by April end. Sony has not announced the price as of yet.
