Sony Xperia SP now Up for Pre-orders in US, Priced $489.99

As we already know, Sony will release the Xperia SP in US this month, so those interested in buying a mid-range to high-end Android based smartphone should start saving some money as the handset is not that “affordable” as expected. The SP is coming with decent specs and features, though we can’t compare its performances with the Xperia Z, or ZL ones. Anyway, if the latest smartphones are too expensive for you but you still want to get a similar device, then the Xperia SP should do the trick.

The best is that you can start making a pre-order now, as on Sony’s U.S.-based online store the Xperia SP has been made available. In order to make a pre-order you will have to register and submit your order and Sony will deliver the phone when it will be officially released – on May 20 by the way.

For those who don’t know, the SP will be coming with a dual core processor, clocked at 1.7 GHZ aling with 1 GB of RAM, microSD card slot, 8 GB of internal storage, an 8 MP camera on the back, a VGA front facing camera, LTE support, a large 4.6 inch display and the Android platform with Jelly Bean 4.1 pre-installed. Of course a future update is being already promised, so the version of the Android system should not be a problem for the Sony Xperia SP, while the specs list is quite decent, especially if you are not a picky customer.

As stated during the lines from above the Xperia SP has been made available for pre-orders in US through Sony’s official web store so you can place your order anytime now, while the phone’s official release date is May 20. Furthermore, if you want to buy the smartphone, then you should know that its price tag is $489.99, this for the SIM free variant of course. That’s a little bit too expensive if you ask me, but it’s still better than the other prices that are tagged for the latest devices available on the market.
