Xperia SP by Sony has been announced today along with all of its hardware and software specs. It is Sony’s mid-range device for 2013 and it is the cheaper variant of the Xperia Z flagship phone. But, it still packs some great hardware and it should be an alternative device for users that don’t want to spend over $600 for a single smartphone.
It seems like the Xperia SP comes with 4.6-inch 720p Reality HD display using Mobile Bravia 2 Engine and a 1.7 Snapdragos S4 CPU. This should be enough for this devices to be a competitor for all phones that have been launched in 2012. Also, it will sport a 1GB RAM and it has an built-in storage of 8GB which can be extended up to 32GB via external SDcard. It features Wi-Fi, HSPA, LTE, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, MHL, GPS and DLNA.
Xperia SP battery measure 2370 mAh and it should be enough for a full day of medium usage on the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. That’s the stock Android OS that comes with this device and it will surely be capable of supporting the new Android 4.2 JB or even the upcoming Android 5.0.
The 8MP Exmor RS back-facing camera has native support for 1080p video recording. However, the front camera is a VGA one and it isn’t that great but it still doesn’t take anything away from this device’s great specs. It is available in three different colors: White, Red and Black. There is no official word on the official price tag but it shouldn’t be more than $450 – $500.
