Xperia Tipo Dual is the name for a new low-end smartphone with dual-sim functionality

in Rumours, Xperia tipo

The name of a new Sony Xperia model has been unearthed by the Indonesian Telecoms Regulatory body. They have a 100% record so far, outing the name of both the Xperia P and Xperia U before they were officially announced. The Sony Xperia Tipo Dual is likely to be low-end handset targeted to emerging markets.

We imagine that the ‘Dual’ part of its name suggests it will have dual-sim capability. The model number for the Tipo Dual is ST21i2, which suggests this is the ‘Tapioca DS’ model that has been rumoured in the past. It will be a dual-sim version of the ST21i ‘Tapioca’ that has already been previewed.

We therefore expect the handset to have the exact specs apart from dual-sim support. This includes a 3.2-inch (320 x 480) display, Qualcomm MSM7227 800MHz processor with Adreno 200 GPU, 512MB RAM, 3MP camera with no LED flash shooting video at VGA resolution (640 x 480). It will come with a 1450mAh battery and will launch with Android 4.0 ICS.

Xperia Tipo Dual

    Strange name. But this cell will sell nice. For low budget customers. And obviously, Sony has the GX for the high end part. (if its released worldwide).
