Sony’s mid-range Xperia J uncovered
Some pictures of the Sony Xperia ST26i surfaced online a couple of months back, but we’re still none the wiser about the commercial name of said phone at the time. Thanks to a posting on Indonesia’s FCC-like agency, we now have the official name of the ST26i. Adding another letter to its string of Xperia smartphone names, the ST26i will be apparently be known as the Xperia J.
The Sony Xperia J will reportedly come with a ho-hum set of specs, such as a single-core 1GHz processor, and a display of 854 x 480 resolution. Unlike its cousins that launched with Android 2.3 Gingerbread, the J is likely to ship with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich out of the gate. Apart from the info above, sadly there’s not much else known about what the Xperia J will be packing inside.
Exterior-wise, the Xperia J marks a new era for Sony Mobile. Gone is the green liquid logo that bears too much association to its not-so successful Ericsson days. The phone does sport a cleaner look on the back, and has a rather understated design on the front.
With a truckload of Xperia models that are set to enter the market soon, from the upcoming Xperia Miro, Tipo, Tipo Dual, Neo L, Go, to the SL and possibly more, Sony fans will have a healthy number of phones to choose from. Then again, too many options can be a bad thing…
