With only one week left until IFA 2012 trade fair kicks off in Berlin, Germany, a new Sony device leaked online. Sony Xperia J is a budget-friendly Android smartphone, which is likely to be officially announced on August 29.
We’ve already been invited at Sony’s launch event, which is set to take place two days ahead of IFA 2012, and we will be transmitting live all the info on the upcoming devices that will be launched by the Japanese company.
However, before Sony’s launch event, the folks over at Mobile-Review
have been given the chance to test a certain Xperia J
smartphone, which we hope to see live next week in Berlin.
Although we’re not sure if the guys over at Mobile-Review
were able to review the final version of the Xperia J or they have been given a test unit.
The important thing is that we now have an idea of how the Xperia J will look on the outside, but we also know some of the phone’s hardware and software configuration.
It appears that Sony Xperia J will be shipped with Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system out of the box.
There are no details on the processor that powers the phone, but we know it’s a Qualcomm Snapdragon
CPU complemented by 512MB of RAM.
Most likely, the Xperia J will be equipped with a 1 GHz single-core processor. Furthermore, the smartphone sports a 4.0-inch capacitive touchscreen display and a 5-megapixel photo snapper on the back, which features autofocus, LED flash and video recording.
It is also worth mentioning that Xperia J drains energy from a 1700 mAh Li-Ion battery, which has yet to be rated by the manufacturer. A microSD card slot is included under the hood as well, allowing for further memory expansion up to 32GB.
