Following numerous leaks in the past concerning new additions in the Xperia series of smartphones, Sony officially announced the new mid-range Xperia SP.
It sports a 4.6 inch HD screen supporting Mobile BRAVIA Engine 2 and according to Sony it offers explicit images and excellent light while the Bravia engine makes sure that all content is shown best on the screen.
Sony Xperia SP also has an 8MPixel camera with Exmor RS sensor, supports NFC and LTE while its processor is a Snapdragon MSM8960, clocked at 1.7 GHz. It has an aluminum casing with a transparent strip notifications at the bottom of the device, much more elaborate than the one we have seen in previous Xperias. For example, if you listen to a song on your Xperia SP the light at the strip does not only match the cover of the album you listening to, but it also allows you to light up on the rhythm like the graphics used in equalizers. Of course, the strip also allows you to personalize the color on certain calls or other notifications by people you want, so that you know who is calling you without having to look at the screen.
Sony Xperia SP runs on Android 4.1.2. and is expected to launch globally during Q2 2013, along with the Xperia L, which was also announced today.
