The Sony Xperia A (SO-04E) has been unveiled by NTT DoCoMo in Japan this morning. The handset is basically the DoCoMo equivalent of the Xperia ZR announced for western markets earlier this week. However, it does come with some extras including One-Seg TV tuner, infra-red and 32GB internal storage (versus 8GB for the Xperia ZR).
Elsewhere the handset is broadly the same, adopting a similar design and comes with IP55/IP58 certification for dust and water resistance. It has a 4.6-inch 720p display and uses a quad-core Snapdragon Pro chipset, 2GB RAM and 13MP Exmor RS. The Xperia A will launch on DoCoMo on 17 May in four colours (black, white, mint and pink).
