Xperia miroThe Xperia miro (ST23i/ST23a) handset has just been uncovered by Sony Mobile’s “Fast-Forward” Facebook campaign. The 3.5-inch mobile will launch with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich in four different colours (black, black/pink, white and white/gold). It will have a 5MP rear camera sensor and also a VGA front-facing camera. Sony is emphasising the “deep Facebook integration” throughout the handset (contacts, gallery, and music). Users will be alerted to new messages and social updates via what Sony calls a ‘unique illumination’ notification light.

In terms of specifications, the Xperia miro will be armed with a 800MHz MSM7225A chipset, 512MB RAM, 4GB of internal memory (2.2GB user accessible) and microSD memory card support. Other features include a battery with 1500mAh capacity capable of 5 hours of GSM talk time and 8 hours of video playback. The Xperia miro is pegged for a global release during the third quarter of 2012.

    why it is 5mpx :|

  • Mr.Alawi

    cause it’s mid end phone … usually 8mp for high end phones :/

  • MobiousO

    So after the new reveals. Which phone matches which code names?

  • doraemonboi


  • Melvile de Melo

    The cam is 5, as most mid rangers are at 5MP. The high ends are at 8MP, only the Sony’s in the international market are at 12 MP

  • shgl

    WTF sony!
    plz focus :(

  • megane198

    It seems like a version of Xperia Go, without the IP67 certification, of course.

  • Chemiclus

    Scheduled for release early next year!!!

  • Huka

    Meh,Xperia U,Sola seems to be true midrangers.The screens of Miro and Go must be looking pretty pixelated.

  • Abhishek Dahiya

    it’s an entry level droid with 800 mhz qualcomm processor

  • Abhishek Dahiya

    nops…, it’s an entry level droid with 800 mhz qualcomm processor

  • rafi

    Cute phone….

  • Abhishek Dahiya

    miro isn’t a midranger, it’s an entry level droid with 800 mhz qualcomm processor

  • rafi

    Entry level?? This spec just like samsung mid renge..

  • Ambroos

    Samsung’s low and mid range have horrible specs, and really aren’t very good value for money. This phone is very low range, the U is mid range.

  • rafi

    It seem sony already mention this is mid renge devices. Maybe just because it powered by 800mhz processor people start judging this is low range. I will wait until it official release in market and do some test first before lebeling it. Just the processor are low but other spec very wise..

  • Ambroos

    Sony never said anything about the range they expect phones to be in. But the Miro will sell for a lot less than the Xperia U, which automatically puts it in the low range. We’re talking price range here, spec range is irrelevant.

    OMG I love this company! Love Sony.


  • DoucheyTuesday

    For the teenage market you’d assume….where art thou, Hayabusa?!

  • Will Anderson


  • Alexander Tonkih

    where do you know? when will be Xperia Z annoced(20 june)?

  • DoucheyTuesday

    Agree…everywhere on the net you read the criticism of too many handsets being released by Sony in 2011 and the praise for HTC in their focus on just three handsets this spring and yet here we are midway through 2012 and a second glut of phones with ‘meh’ specs is announced by them. This does look nice, that said, but who’s going to buy the Xperia U now? It’s like in football when two players go for the same ball ( yeh Euro 2012 much?!) they collide and the chance of a goal goes begging.

  • DoucheyTuesday

    I make you Chairman of Sony!

  • Trixz_D

    I really do think they are releasing too many phones this year. At least Sony Ericsson could control themselves when it comes to releasing phones.

  • DoucheyTuesday

    Fascinating insight

  • Trixz_D

    I agree they are now taking the piss, I think they are going to dig themselves into a much bigger hole the way they are going. I love their phones but what they are doing now is stupid

  • DoucheyTuesday

    lmao at ‘mid end’ -and four fools thumbed that up!

  • DoucheyTuesday

    why you talk like a baby?

  • The Truth Must Be Said

    Another junkphone but this time for facebook users !! + Another disappointment about SONY
    really shit is happening by sony

  • Guest

    This with a physical keyboard = my new Sony phone! Please Sony, release it!!!

  • rafi

    sony just provide choices and at the end its up to you and your pocket…

  • Guest

    Already disappointed when, after months of hoping, the Tipo DS turned out not to be the Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini Pro successor…

  • rafi

    Low price does not meant it low end devices.. xperia u with 4gb storage available with no micro sd and no hd screen … thats low end even the processor are good. And the camera both offer same mp. Same front cam. Xperia u offer glow transparents stripe and xperia miro offer magic illumination.

  • metcarded

    Sony have dumped their dumb phone OS in favour of Android.
    How many non smart phones did SonyEricsson release before they went exclusively Android?
    These low end phones are just filling in the gap that dumb phones would have previously covered.

  • XYZ

    Yes, so this will be much cheaper. And its already better looking and probably better build than the shit Samsung put out in the low-end (You know crap like the Galaxy Y)

  • razec

    Don’t forget Galaxy Pocket, an entry level android phone that still looked like iPhone!

  • SadMan

    Sony i don’t know whether i should be happy or sad with your marketing style but this is too soon. Xperia S still far away from ICS and it is your flagship smartphone. Come on Sony. Right now when i look at my XS it just look so sad.

    They’re turning into HTC releasing all these phones, and it didn’t go well for HTC.

  • Alvin

    Here in Indonesia, htc desire c is around $370, but xperia u, the very very very much far specs, is just around $250, that’s why I love Sony…!””…

  • Javier Lianso

    Looks like SONY want to go back to those times when people used cheapy but trendy phones. Remember Walkman W300? that one is a good example of my point.
    Anyway, Miro is good for that determinated sector of people, so don’t complain. We, who want power and use a phone for more purposes than speding time in social networks or listening to music, will go for GX or Acro S, for example.

  • Samy OR

    Xperia ion 4G comes to Germany ???

  • Shahzada Shaheryar

    so what abt neo MT15..!! is that a high end phone !!

  • Shahzada Shaheryar

    well your name start with Douche… nothing more to say :p

    VGA recording and not HD 720p? Seriously?

  • Feanor

    At Sony Mobile it seems that they know a bit more about design than other Android phonemakers but it seems that they are losing focus. They are flooding the market with too many similar, low end models. Between the affordable NXT Xperia U and the basic Xperia Tipo I see no market niche. And a Facebook phone? Hello? As if the other Xperias lack in Facebook integration???
