Sony has announced the Xperia M mid-range Android 4.1 Jelly Bean smartphone, powered by a 1GHz dual-core Krait processor. It will also be available in a dual-SIM version, called the Xperia M dual, when it is launched in Q3 2013. For now, pricing has not yet been announced.
The Sony Xperia M features a 4-inch FWVGA (854x480 pixel) TFT display, that is powered by Adreno 305 graphics, and features 1GB of RAM. 4GB of built-in storage is also available, expandable via microSD card.
The smartphone also sports a 5MP camera that boasts of an Exmor RS sensor, and 720p HD video recording. A front-facing 0.3MP camera is also available. Connectivity options include dual-band Wi-Fi, 3G HSPA, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC and FM radio.
With its NFC capabilities, the Xperia M has also been given ‘one-touch’ sharing and connectivity features. The Xperia M will be available in four colours - black, white, purple and lime (not available for Xperia M dual).
Looking at the two phone’s feature sets, we hope Sony prices the devices at quite a bit under Rs. 18,000 in India, to offer a premium competition to similarly specced smartphones from Indian manufacturers, and of course Samsung and LG.
