Sony Xperia J smartphone – images leaked ahead of IFA 2012

Sony’s current Xperia smartphone range has barely been on the market for six months, yet the Japanese manufacturer looks set to power on with a range of new devices.

One such device is the Xperia J, a low-end smartphone that is set to make an appearance at IFA 2012 at the end of the month.

The Android smartphone is expected to sit at bottom end of the range and launch with the affordable price tag of £120, while still boasting the stylish handset design we’ve come to expect from the Xperia range.

Sony Xperia J – what can we expect?

According to speculation, the Xperia J will feature Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, with no news as yet when it will get the upgrade to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.

What we do know is that it is powered by a not-so-impressive single-core 1 GHz processor, along with 512MB of RAM. Reports also suggest that the Xperia J will come with a 4-inch LCD display delivering a resolution of 480×854 pixels.

Other features on the Xperia J include a front-facing camera, of as-yet unknown resolution, as well as a 5MP rear-facing camera. This is along with WiFi, Bluetooth and a MicroSD card slot.

Sony Xperia J at IFA 2012

We first heard of the Xperia J last month, and the latest leaked photos suggest that an IFA unveiling is all but assured – setting Sony up for a bumper showing at this year’s event.

As well as the Xperia J, we’re also expecting to get a first look at the Xperia SL. Effectively an updated Xperia S, the SL is set to be Sony’s next flagship smartphone.

The device is set to be largely the same as the Xperia S, save for a dual-core 1.7GHz Qualcomm S3 processor and ICS as standard, so we’re not sure if there’s a lot of point to the SL.

Nevertheless, with new phones to combat the high and low end, it seems that Sony’s smartphone market assault is only just getting started.
