The new Sony Xperia A has visited the FCC, and the docs are proving us with some details about the device along with a couple of photos to make an idea about how it looks like.
What’s curious is that some of the documents, and we’re talking about some images and the user manual, have vanished. I mean they are no longer present on the FCC website. But according to Engadget, and as you can see in the picture, the design of the handset does not bring many novelties as it’s very similar to the appearance of the Sony Xperia Z.
It seems that the Sony Xperia A will have a 5-inch display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 and support for 4G LTE. Also according to the user manual, the smartphone with come with a 13 MP camera, and 16 GB of on-board storage.
The second image displays the back of the phone. As you can see, the case is removed and we can observe the battery slot which means that the 2300 mAh battery of the Sony Xperia A will be removable. This is a feature that many customers are looking for when buying a smartphone as a removable battery can be very useful especially for the people who travel big distances and need to carry a spare battery at all times.
What’s more interesting is the fact that, in spite of the fact that the battery can be removed, the device’s user manual specifies that the Sony Xperia A will be resistant to water and dust, just like the company’s current flagship, the Xperia Z.
The listed codename of the Sony Xperia A is SO-o4E and it’s user manual features the NTT DoCoMo logo on it, which is a mobile operator from Japan. The network is preparing to announce a new series of smartphone for the summer, thus we expect that the Sony Xperia A to be included in the list. Then we will probably get more information about the device.
