The Sony Xperia Z Ultra and upcoming Xperia Honami are attracting a lot of attention at the moment, and for this reason some of you might have missed on the fact that the Japanese company also announced two more smartphones last week in Shanghai. The new releases include the dual-SIM Sony Xperia C, the very first company’s phone that is powered by MediaTek processor. The second phone is a TD-LTE-enabled variant of the Sony Xperia SP that is compatible with China Mobile’s 4G network.
Sony Xperia C Dual-SIM and Xperia SP TD-LTE
The only upgrade in the Sony Xperia SP model is the addition of the TD-LTE antenna, which will provide support China Mobile’s 4G network. Other than that the phone will be identical to the original SP, so you can expect a 4.6-inch 720p display, a dual-core 1.7 GHz Krait on a Snapdragon S4 Pro chipset and an 8-megapixel camera, among others. Like the original, the handset will feature the LED strip at the bottom.
The Sony Xperia C, on the other hand, is an entirely new device. The phone sports a 5-inch qHD screen with a resolution of 960 x 540 pixels, 1 GB of RAM and microSD card slot for memory expansion. The handset also packs an 8-megapixel Exmor R rear camera with LED flash and voice shutter function, as well as front-facing camera for video chatting and self-portraits.
The Xperia C will be Sony’s first smartphone to be powered by a MediaTek processor. The quad-core chip uses four ARM Cortex A7 cores for the CPU and a PowerVR Series5XT graphics processor. The phone is dual-SIM capable and runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. The Xperia C will arrive in China in black, white, and purple color options and will be China Unicom exclusive.
