The Sony Xperia J has been previewed on Russian website, Mobile Review, before it even gets announced and released by Sony Mobile.
The handset, otherwise known as the Mint ST26i, appears to be a cheaper iteration of the Sony Xperia U with which it shares a number of features like 512MB of RAM, the 5-megapixel camera, Wi-Fi, a microSD card slot, a micro-USB port and the screen resolution (854 x 480 pixels).
Its display, though, is slightly larger at 4in and it has a single-core processor clocked at 1GHz (rather than a dual-core one). The rest of the spec list includes Bluetooth 2.0, a 1,700mAh battery, and a Qualcomm MSM7227a processor possibly clocked at 800MHz.
The Xperia J is also said to come with a cut-down version of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich,which is a puzzling decision.
The handset is said to be pitched at 160 Euros or around £125, which is a great price for what it offers. That said, the Acer Liquid Galland Duo and the Sony Xperia U offer more features for only a little extra. In the Xperia U's case, just £10 more.
