Sony's Xperia J, a budget-class 4-inch smartphone has appeared on full review posted on Russian site Mobile-review.com and according to the site, it should appear in retail in September.
The Xperia J is apparently Sony's attempt to expand the Xperia range across the entire market range by launching an affordable entry level device. The new Sony Xperia J is built around a 4-inch 854x480 resolution LCD touchscreen while its insides are based on quite old Qualcomm's MSM7227a chip with Adreno 200 graphics and 512MB of RAM memory, which is in line what you would expect from an entry-level smartphone.
The design of the new Xperia J takes a lot from its more expensive siblings like the Xperia P or S. The rest of the specs include WiFi, Bluetooth and a 5 megapixel snapper. The bad news is that it lacks a microSD card slot. The good side is that Xperia J runs on Android 4.0 ICS out of the box and although it is not Jelly Bean, at least it is not stuck on Gingerbread like many other, even more expensive, smartphones.
According to details, the Xperia J should hit retail/e-tail in September with a price tag of around €150. (via Pocket-lint.com)
