After XPeria Z debut posing Katrina Kaif, Sony Mobiles India has launched XPeria SP smartphone in India. Announced last month along with Sony XPeria L in an event at Moscow, Russia, the smartphone packs 4.6 inches 720p HD reality display with Mobile BRAVIA Engine 2. Not going with quad core processor, it packs Dual core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 MSM8960Pro processor clocked at 1.7 GHz with 1 GB RAM provides seamless games playback without any lags.
Alright just like few XPeria phones this comes with color changing transparent element with customization notifications alert on your incoming calls and text messages. Furthermore the 8 mega pixel camera has become a standard camera for high-end smartphones. Features like LED flash, EXMOR RS sensor for HDR images, panorama picture mode further extends the camera capabilities + VGA front facing camera is vital for social networking connection. It’s with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system version out of box.
Looks like Sony has adopted India OEM strategy of including a micro SD card and limiting the internal storage capacity. This saves the cost for Sony and 8 GB internal storage capacity is good. Although this smartphone is 4G LTE capable, it will not be applicable in India as 4G is still a dream.
