Japanese mobile phone maker Sony Mobile is expected to make official some new devices in its Xperia lineup before the end of this year, and one of them might be called Xperia A, rumor has it.No official info on the device has been provided as of now, although the name has popped up online a few times before, so it still remains to be seen what exactly it will have to offer when released.
Before that, however, we can have a look at what one eager designer would like to see Sony’s Xperia A look like, courtesy of the photo attached to the left.
Coming from Ben Ling, this is only a concept phone for the time being, though it might very well become a real phone, in the event that Sony too is considering the same outer looks and internal hardware for it.
As can be seen in the photo, the Xperia A concept resembles a lot the Xperia Neo that was made available back in 2011, though its internals are in line with what today’s high-end Android devices have to offer.
The smartphone was imagined with a 4.6-inch touchscreen display on the front, a Super AMOLED panel with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection, as well as with a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor inside.
Furthermore, the concept device packs 32GB of internal memory, with a microSD memory card slot attached for expansion purposes, a 2600 mAh battery inside, and Google’s Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean operating system loaded on top.
On the back, the concept phone sports a 13-megapixel photo snapper with Exmor RS sensor that also sports HDR, LED flash, and full HD video recording. There is also a 2.2MP front camera included, so as to offer video calling capabilities while on the go.
As concept-phones notes, the Xperia A is also said to be water and dust resistant, being certified in line with the IP55 and IP57 standards, which would allow it to stand next to the Xperia Z that was launched earlier this year.
Unfortunately, Ben Ling’s Sony Xperia A smartphone is only a concept device for the time being, and Sony might never consider releasing a new smartphone with these looks and hardware capabilities.
