We have to admit, we’ve been fairly impressed with Sony’s smartphone output this year. The Xperia Z was one of the first 1080p flagships to hit the UK, and the 4G-ready Xperia SP is selling for just £249.99 (initially thought to be some sort of typo).
I wrote yesterday about the 20MP Sony Xperia i1, and now we’re hearing about the Sony Xperia A via semi-official channels.
See, Sony hasn’t given the Xperia A a formal unveiling just yet, but it’s described in full detail in an FCC listing.
Sony Xperia A specs include a 5in 1080p display, 13MP rear camera, 16GB internal storage, and LTE support.
Sounds a lot like the Sony Xperia Z/ZL, right? The big difference here is the removable 2,300mAh battery.
The FCC listing mentions NTT Docomo, the dominant mobile network of Japan, so the Sony Xperia A might well remain exclusive to the Land of the Rising Sun.
Ah well, at least there’s that Sony Xperia i1 to look forward to. In addition to the 20MP rear camera, Sony Xperia i1 specs are rumoured to include a Snapdragon 800 processor and 3,000mAh battery. Nice.
