Sony Xperia J (ST26i) - Entry Level Rumoured Handset

Sony Xperia J ST26i completes the trio of new Sony Xperia smartphones expected to be officially outed in the next few days when the IFA technology show begins in Germany. This Android handset is set to be the entry-level offering out of the three, with Sony Xperia T and Sony Xperia TX being more in the mid to high end bracket.

Sony Xperia J.

Specs wise, Xperia J offers a pretty mixed bag, with a few treats and a few disappointments thrown in for good measure. It's a handset full of contradictions. Although it will apparently sport a 4 inch screen, which is great for an entry-level phone, the resolution leaves a lot to be desired, at only 480 x 854 pixels with dodgy viewing angles, poor colour and glare to boot.

Although the battery is respectable at 1700 mAh, the CPU doesn't quite match up, clocked at a dismal (we don't want to see this spec anymore) 800 MHz. It is unlikely to serve you the best Android experience, even if money is an issue it is worth looking elsewhere. Think Huawei Ascend P1, which although not a brand as recognised as Sony, you will certainly get your money's worth.

Xperia J will sport a meagre 5 MP rear facing camera, rather a come down from its high-end brothers 13 MP snappers. It is expected to have a front facing camera too, and this is likely to be a low end VGA.

A further couple of highs in this rollercoaster of specs is the fact that Xperia J has NFC installed and it also has Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) OS, which although superseded by Android 4.1 (Jellybean) is suitably up-to-date for the entry-level sector.

As with the other two Xperia mentioned, there is no information concerning UK release dates, price, or even if this is in fact a real bonafide phone. We can be almost sure that the price will be within most people's reach however, so don't strike it off your list just yet.
