A 4.3" display with 540x960 resolution would have made more sense for the Xperia M successor. With the current crop of specs, this is more likely to be a lower-mid range phone.
On a different note, if the Xperia M2 is sporting a 4.8" display, which is 0.8" more than its predecessor, I wonder what size of display the Xperia SP2 is going to don!
NO!, 24 Feb 2014It's the successor to the Xperia M (DUH!) not the SP. And it better be competing with the Moto... morehere in the philippines moto G and xperia SP are on the same price both 300$.. That is why i prefer sony phones i love them so much satisfied.
Samiy, 24 Feb 2014This supposed to be a Xperia SP upgrade, the screen is a bit bigger but lower on the resolutio... moreIt's the successor to the Xperia M (DUH!) not the SP. And it better be competing with the Moto G cause the trade off is lower resolution screen vs SD card slot. But knowing how greedy Sony is they'll probably price this way too high.
mid range? SP is a mid range, its spec is much higher than this 1, so this is same category as SP? seriously?
This supposed to be a Xperia SP upgrade, the screen is a bit bigger but lower on the resolution, I don't know if the 1.2 quad-core is better then the 1.7 dual core and the GPU again is a downgrade from the 320 to the 305. It doesn't say anything about the battery capacity, front facing camera and LTE conectivity. The things that ar bad in Xperia Sp are the front camera wich is only vga and the back camera is not so good as well.If is waterproof maybe i'll give it a chance because the design is marvelous like on the Z2 flagship.
Fantastic screen size as 5.2 on the z2 is just to big p. Shame about the specs. Although it's still a mid range device price point will be inserting.
if it had 720p screen it would be more or less okay
Zenfone 5 though is cheaper and better
i wonder why the codename use M2 not M1 like Z1 or E1
hope there will be xperia M1 with minus LTE,smaller screen (4") and absolutely cheaper price
does anyone have an idea if this phone has a front cam? and its probable cost in india??
Fysh, 24 Feb 2014Do I wait for this one or shall I go for Xperia ZR ?Xperia ZR! Same TFT display but you will get higher ppi because it has HD Resolution. You will get a bump in CPU and GPU too with snapdragon 600. Also you will get a 13MP camera in a more compact body! It might be old(roughly a year) but still its gold!
grr i was hopin for a 720p IPS display -___-.. but on the other hand atleast its not the succesor of SP rather its the succesor of xperia M .. ill wait insted for the SP successor
