It’s about Sony the brand to be watched out for with a continuous devices announced in January 2012. Thanks to CES that it has showcased Xperia S what it might look like the flagship model of Sony upcoming Android phones. With devices like Xperia S, Z Series Walkman’s and Xperia Ion announcement, Sony stealed the show at world’s largest Consumer Electronics Show held at Las Vegas.
Yesterday, we got a sneak preview into the upcoming Sony handset and their possible available dates. However we might see name change of the device as those might be the code name of the phones and there is no news from Sony yet. We have also got the leaked specifications of Sony ST25i Kumquat Android mobile phone which by specifications looks like a mid range handset.
So it’s clear that Sony has just waiting for the Ericsson to discontinue their partnership and the moment it happened, Sony was ready for the smartphones.
Sony LT22i Nypon is the upcoming Android smartphone by Sony which will be powered with dual core processor and using NovaThor U8500 chipset. It will sport a 4 inches LCD capacitive display screen with LED backlit supporting multi touch and it comes with 8 mega pixel camera with LED flash. The screen is with Mobile BRAVIA reality display providing superior HD display at 720p. The front facing 1.3 mega pixel camera can be used for video calls and video conferences. LT22i Nypon by Sony will be a feature rich handset providing the best entertainment experience with Music Unlimited from Sony Entertainment Network music library reaching 12 million songs and unlimited Video download. Just like other Sony handset this will also be a PlayStation certified providing high quality gaming experience and PlayStation Store to download various games.
Sony LT22i Nypon will be powered with Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS, though it doesn’t have Ice Cream Sandwich Android 4.0 pre-installed, the hardware of the phone is compatible with it. I don’t know when the Android 4.0 will arrive for this handset. Among the various connectivity options included are the Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n with Wi-Fi hotspot, NFC, DLNA and HDMI. Along with that the USB 2.0, micro USB and native USB tethering can also be done.
So the confirmed specifications are as follows –
- 4.0 inches LED backlit LCD screen
- Sony Mobile Bravia Engine
- 16 Gb internal storage capacity
- 8 mega pixel camera
- 1.3 mega pixel front facign camera
- 4G ready device
- Li –ion 1320 mAh battery
It’s highly likely that Sony LT22i Nypon will be rich with features like SmartTags to easily switch your smartphones settings to another with a single swipe using the NFC feature and the Smart Pro wireless headset does more than answering call or hearing music. It can read text messages, see incoming calls notifications, answer them and lot more. The only point to worry in this handset is the battery life which is just less with 1320 mAh battery and its will be good to see the handset available in Black and Silver color.
According to leaked specifications the device will be priced at 370 Euros and will be made available in second quarter of 2012. We will hear more of the Sony LT22i Nypon as soon as it happens when the device launch is very near.
