Xperia tipoSony Mobile has officially announced two new low-end handsets in the form of the Xperia tipo (ST21a, ST21i) and Xperia tipo dual (ST21i2, ST21a2). This model should come as no surprise given the extensive leaks already seen. The Xperia tipo uses the same 800MHz Qualcomm MSM7225A chipset seen in the Xperia miro and comes with 512MB RAM and 2.9GB of internal storage (2.5GB user accessible) along with microSD memory card support. The Xperia tipo dual is the same handset as the Xperia tipo apart from the fact that it has dual sim capability.

Both models come with a 3.2-inch (320 x 480) display. Other features include a 3.2MP camera resolution with VGA video recording and a 1500mAh battery capable of 5 hours of talk time and 8 hours of video playback. The Xperia tipo will come in four colours (Classic Black, Classic White, Deep Red and Navy Blue) whilst the Xperia tipo dual will be available in two colours (Serene black and Classic silver). Both phones will launch globally during Q3 2012 with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box.

    Looks like Sony R&D are in overtime . . .

    Sony wants the Xperia range to go up against the Galaxy series from Samsung. Its nice to see them working their way up, rather than going against the flagship. One of the reasons could be the fact that a flagship never really remains a flagship for long. . .

    Background sound is really nice. Great as secondary phone or for those who are moving from feature phones to budget smartphones.

    I also hope that like the 2011 line, this year’s phones we be built and designed so that the next version of Android will be able to be rolled out to all of them at the same time (more or less). Sony has set a standard there.
