Sony Ericsson’s Xperia Play smartphone might have not managed to impress users that much, but a successor could achieve that, especially if packed with the right features.
Enthusiasts did enjoy the Xperia Play, that’s for sure, and some of them will certainly enjoy a sequel, should Sony ever decide to release one.
Coming from designer Victor Cao, the new Xperia Play Duo concept phone
is meant to offer a glimpse at what an ideal such smartphone should look like.
The specifications list of the smartphone are similar with those currently found in high-end devices out there, with a little extra flavor added on top.
This would be the touchpad that should arrive attached to the smartphone, the same as with Xperia Play. However, it appears that the new one would provide users with the possibility to control both sides of the phone, front and back, in a manner similar to those used for PS Vita.
Xperia Play Duo comes with a 1.6 GHz quad-core Krait processor packed inside with Adreno 320 GPU, complemented by 2GB of RAM, and sports a 4.6 inch HD touchscreen, which also features antiglare and BE 2.
Moreover, the concept device
comes packed with stereo speakers, support for multiplayer, and features a 3000 mAh battery inside. 32GB of internal memory should offer enough
Running under Google’s Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system, the phone also comes with an 8-megapixel photo snapper on the back, with full HD video recording capabilities.
The phone’s specs also includes NFC, Miracast, Clear Bass, Clear Audio, and the usual set of connectivity features, along with the whole set of sensors.
Additionally, it sports a transparent surface in both upper and lower ends, where users will hold it for gaming purposes. Unfortunately, it is nothing more than a concept device for the time being, though a second Xperia Play smartphone
from Sony might sport some of its features.
