It is not too long after the unlocked version of the Sony Xperia Z appeared on the US Sony store, and here we are with word that there is another device released to accompany the Xperia Z on Sony’s digital store shelves. We are referring to the Sony Xperia SP, which is now up for pre-order, and you can choose from either black or white colors. Regardless of the color that you pick, it will still cost you a cool $489.99 – but that is because this is an unlocked model, of course.
So, just what kind of hardware specifications does the Sony Xperia SP pack underneath the hood? A quick inspection would reveal pretty competitive hardware for the mid-range smartphone market, where you would find 1280 x 720 pixels packed into a 4.6-inch display, a 1.7GHz dual-core MSM8960 Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, an 8-megapixel camera at the back with a front-facing VGA camera, 8GB of internal memory, a microSD memory card slot, 1GB RAM, HSPA+ (850, 900, 1900, 2100) and LTE (Band I, Band II, Band IV, Band V) support, NFC connectivity, and of course, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean running right out of the box.
