Sony has announced its latest Xperia handset, the Xperia Sola – which features the same styling as the Xperia S, P and U. Sony has also given the Xperia Sola “floating touch” display, a new feature that will allow users to navigate with fingers a few millimetres above the touchscreen. The device will release in Europe in Q2 2012, and should be available globally by the end of the first half of the year – so far, no pricing has been announced yet.

The Sony Xperia Sola, previously codenamed Pepper MT27i, will run Android 2.3 Gingerbread out-of-the-box, but has been promised an ICS update sometime in Q2 2012.

The Sola has a 3.7-inch 854x480 pixel display with the Mobile Bravia engine, a 1GHz dual-core NovaThor U8500 processor, 512MB of RAM, a 5MP autofocus camera with LED flash and 720p HD video recording, and 8GB of built-in storage.

The 9.9mm-thick Sony Xperia Sola weighs 107 grams, and will be available in black, white and red colours. As for connectivity options, the Xperia Sola features 3G, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n with DLNA and hotspot functionality, Bluetooth 2.1 with EDR and A2DO, microUSB 2.0, stereo FM with RDS, and NFC - the device will come with two NFC Sony SmartTags.

It runs on a 1,320 mAh battery, rated to deliver up to 470 hours of standby time, 6 hours of talk time, and 40 hours of continuous music playback.
