Sony Xperia J: Ultra cheap Android phone out next week
Meet the Sony Xperia J Android phone. It’s not official yet, but it’s already looking like it’s going to shape up the smartphone market on release: it’s bringing the full Android app experience to stores for as little as £120 off contract. Are you in?
Sony’s expected to debut lots of gadgets at the IFA technology show in Berlin next week, and we’re betting that among them will be the Sony Xperia J. According to Russian site Mobile-Review, which published photos and details, it’ll come packing the modern Android 4.0 and a sharp, 4-inch 854×480 resolution LCD screen, along with a five megapixel camera, and it’s all powered by a 1GHz processor.
Design wise, it appears to mimic the tapering curves of last year’s hit Xperia Arc phones, on a smaller scale. All for around €150 (£120) off contract – if true, it’ll likely end up even cheaper as networks subsidise the cost of it on Pay As You Go.
If you’re wondering where the catch is, well, we’re not clear yet. The Sony Xperia J is reportedly missing a microSD slot so you might not be able to store all that many songs and videos. But that seems to be about it – that really is a fantastic deal for the price. And if you want further confirmation, a second site, ePrice, has published some very real looking photos of it too, in black, white and hot pink.
IFA kicks off a week today, so expect to hear more about the Sony Xperia J very soon.
