More details on the mid-range Sony Xperia SP
The mid-range Sony model once known as the "Hua-Shan" has, as you probably already know, turned out to be the Sony Xperia SP. Now, we have  new information on the phone from a source considered by the Xperia Blog to be trustworthy. While Sony is not planning on hosting a press conference at next week's MWC in Barcelona, we are expecting to see the Sony Xperia SP on display at the show.

So what is the 4-1-1 about the device? The Sony Xperia SP is expected to be equipped with a 4.6 inch 720p screen and be powered by a dual-core 1.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro MSM8960T processor. The Adreno 320 GPU handles the graphics. 8GB of internal memory is aboard although that can be expanded with the use of the microSD slot. On back of the handset is an 8MP Exmor RS camera. All four sides of the phone are said to be constructed from aluminum, but the back will be made of plastic.

One interesting note. While the Sony Xperia SP will offer a smaller screen than the Sony Xperia ZL, the former weighs 4 grams more (155 grams) than the larger sized model.

Yeah, the dual core S4 with Adreno 225 is considered mid-range now, dual core Krait with Adreno 320 should be higher on the scale.

It should be more powerful than S3 which is still considered high end.

Eh?! Same internals as the Xperia Z and it pushes less pixels so it is probably faster. How much more beastly do you want it?! 342 ppi isn't that much farther from 441. This probably has better battery life than the Z too. It even uses the metal HTC fans and Xperia fans jizz so much about it.

The only thing I can see that mid ranges it is the 8gb of storage but it has an SD card slot so whatever.

So what does it need exactly to be high end to you guys? It is already much higher than an iphone 5 in both cpu and pixel density. Waterproof? More storage?

If it is the screen then I think you are out of luck. I think the Blackerry Z10 screen is probably the top of the line right now at 356 ppi. You sure as hell won't find a 1080p 4.3 inch screen anywhere. What is that anyways? 500 ppi?
