After the release of the Xperia S, which is one of the best smartphones launched this year along with the HTC One X and Galaxy S 2, Sony wants to add a new member to the Xperia line. Unfortunately, this time we will not see a new high end device, as the Xperia ST21i is being designed to suit the expectations of an entry level customer. We have managed to find the first aspects regarding to the ST21i future specs and features, though the price and official release date is still missing from the picture.
Take note that the following are just rumors, we have nothing certain to rely on nor confirmed by Sony. Furthermore, the ST21i will probably be the codename, so the phone’s name might also be a different one at its release. The image you see above is the correct one, that’s how the handset will look like. As you can see the design is not that impressive, the display looking quite small compared with the plastic made case. The Xperia logo was placed badly as it not brings a plus for the looks. So far, I am a little bit disappointed by Sony.
The Sony Xperia ST21i specs should include a poorly single core 800 Mhz Qualcomm processor along with Adreno 200 GPU, 512 MB of RAM memory and a 3 MP rear facing camera with no flash; a front facing camera is also missing. You will get a 1460 mAh battery which should provide enough power for satisfying you. Also, another positive aspect of the ST21i is the operating system, which will be the Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich. At least the firmware is a high end one, the features included in the system being the ones that will make the difference. Beside this, the handset is not impressive, the specs are decent but not high end; I recommend this phone only for the entry level customers or for the users who want to get a smartphone on a low price tag.
That’s all we could find and remember that we are still waiting for something official from Sony. The price and the release date is being expected, so if you’re interested in buying this new Android ICS based device stay close and check our posts for further updates.
