Sony is reportedly developing an entry-level Android smartphone, codenamed ST21i Tapioca. The device will be running on the latest Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system and powered by an 800 MHz Qualcomm processor . Reports about a new Sony smartphone have come after leaked photos of the rumoured device surfaced online.
According to Xperiablog, the Sony ST21i will have a 3.2-inch (320 x 480) display, Qualcomm MSM7227 800MHz processor with Adreno 200 GPU, 512MB RAM, 3MP camera with no LED flash shooting video at VGA resolution (640 x 480). It will come with a 1,460mAh battery and will launch with Android 4.0 ICS. There's no word when the Sony ST21i Tapioca will be officially announced.
This is not the first time rumours of an entry-level Sony smartphone have hit the Internet. Last year, reports said that Sony Ericsson was working on an entry-level smartphone, destined for emerging markets. The device, then dubbed as the Sony Ericsson ST21a, appeared in the AnTuTu benchmark, confirming the 800MHz processor speed.
Meanwhile, leaked images of another unannounced Sony smartphone have hit the web. The rumoured device, branded as the Xperia LT29i Hayabusa, features Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, a 4.55 inch HD display, dual-core, Snapdragon S4 MSM8960 Pro processor (with Adreno 320 GPU), 13MP rear camera with HDR video, 2,200 mAh battery, and a case that’s about 7mm thin.
