Xlash, 29 Jan 2013More pixels in the camera doesn't mean more quality. Xperia Mini... moreCorrect Neo V is one of the best camera could actually beat many 8Mp.

oreader, 28 Jan 2013Only 5 MP? Wow, I thought Sony could do more.More pixels in the camera doesn't mean more quality. Xperia Mini for example, takes impressive quality pictures and HD videos.

5 MP from Sony still beats 8 or 12 MP from HTC or other phones (maybe not Nokia, depends, still)

"The rumored phones are the Sony Xperia 4,
Sony Xperia 5R, and Sony Xperia 6 and one
unnamed phone. The first of the three
phones will be a 4" phone with a 720P
resolution and 360 PPI (higher than the
iPhone). Additionally, this phone will have
a 12MP camera and a Qualcomm
MSM8960T dualcore processor. This
processor is the upgraded version of the
MSM8960 as it has an improved GPU which
is upgraded from an Adreno 225 GPU up to
an Adreno 320 which is primarily designed
for 1080P resolutions. As such, the GPU
will perform exceptionally well, similarly to
what you can expect on an LG Optimus G
or Nexus 4 (when not thermally throttled).
Sony has also opted to go with 1.5GB of
RAM, 16GB of internal memory, and 1.5GB
of RAM as well as a MicroSD card slot.
This appears to be a pretty impressive 4"
phone to compete against the likes of the
Nexus 4 and Optimus G. This will all be
powered by a standard sized 2,800 mAh

I hope its 4.33". Mid high range. Xperia P2!

Looks actually more like the Xperia XL. Seems to be a really solid phone and this is only a mid-ranger? You do not really have a disadvantage as it seems. Don't know capacity of the battery but the hardware as of now seems extremly decent.

Only 5 MP? Wow, I thought Sony could do more.

i think the bottom is transparent, cool!

this phone looks excellent, esp for a mid range phone.....i have used the 4.7 inch phones and i have decided to stick with 4.3 inch ones, it is my ideal size so i hope i get a good choice of mid range phones this year with 720p screens and semi decent camera to chose from

Cats, 28 Jan 2013Who still creates dual-core processors clocked over 1.5 GHz?Dude, it's a mid range phone. Dual core krait is fast and can even go par with other quad core.

It seems to be so good. Is it Xperia P's successor?
