Unveiled back in September at IFA 2012 trade fair in Berlin, Sony Xperia J is about to make its debut in India.
AndroidOS reports that the smartphone is available for pre-order for Rs 16490 (305 USD or 235 EUR) and is expected to hit shelves in the last week of October.
Customers who pre-purchase the Xperia J via Flipkart will also receive an e-Gift voucher worth Rs 500 (9 USD or 7 EUR). The smartphone is available in two color options: black and white. Check it out here.
Sony Xperia J will be shipped with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system onboard, but the Japanese handset maker confirmed a Jelly Bean update would be available in the following months.
The Xperia J is the less-featured Android phone announced by Sony at IFA 2012 exhibition. In this regard, the smartphone is equipped with a 1 GHz single-core Qualcomm MSM7227A Snapdragon processor and an obsolete Adreno 200 graphics processing unit.
On the inside, the device packs 512MB of RAM and 4 GB of internal memory, but only 2GB are available for users to take advantage of. Fortunately, the Xperia J comes with microSD card slot for memory expansion (up to 32GB).
Furthermore, the handset sports a more than decent 4.0-inch capacitive touchscreen display that supports 480 x 854 pixels resolution and 16 million colors. The phone’s display is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass coating and is based on Sony Mobile BRAVIA technology.
When it comes to connectivity, Xperia J offers a wide range of options, including HSDPA and HSUPA, along with Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and microUSB.
Sony Xperia J is powered by a 1750 mAh Li-Ion battery, which is rated by the manufacturer for up to 600 hours of standby time (618 in 3G mode) or up to 6 hours of talk time (7 hours in 3G mode).
