Sony has launched an all new Xperia smartphone called the Sony Xperia Sola. This new phone from Sony also brings about another new technology called the “Float Touch” which enables users to navigate the web without even touching the screen of the phone. However, we do not actually see the need for such a technology to be pushed on a mobile phone.
Coming to the specs and features of the Sony Xperia Sola, one thing we can say is that it is loaded but the only downside is that the phone ships with Android 2.3 Gingerbread and the expected upgrade to Android 4.0 Ice cream Sandwich is to be available around the upcoming June month.
- 1GHz Dual Core Processor
- 3.7 inch reality display screen with mobile BRAVIA Engine & 850 X 480 pixels screen resolution
- 5 Megapixel camera with 16X digital zoom and auto focus
- xLOUD and 3D surround sound audio technology for crisp and loud listening
- 8GB Internal storage, expandable upto 32GB via microSD memory card slot
- Runs on Android platform 2.3 and will be upgraded to Android 4.0 during summer 2012
- 3.5 mm audio jack, aGPS, Micro USB, WiFi
- Floating touch navigation, NFC Enabled and Xperia SmartTags
- 1320 mAh batter with Talk time of approx. 5.5 hours and 470 hours standby time
You can find detailed specs about the device from Sony’s official press release. Looking at the specs, we expect the price of the Sony Xperia Sola phone to be around US $ 500 (Approx. Rs. 27,000/- in Indian Currency) although the official prices are not out yet. The phone will be available in White, Red & Black colours respectively.
