The Xperia LT30p Mint is said to come with a big, 4.6-inch HD display, a Snapdragon S4 chip, but we don’t know whether it’d feature a dual-core or quad-core processor. There’s 1GB of RAM memory and 16 gigs of internal storage, expandable via microSD cards. The battery is non-removable, the phone comes with a microSIM card and there will be support for NFC.
It’s also said to come with the iconic arc design with a slight curve on the back. It’s also featuring some very interesting design decisions - all the physical buttons will be placed on the bottom right side of the device, making them easy to access with one hand. The Sony Xperia Mint will come with a lock button, a volume rocker and a dedicated camera shutter key. The handset will be plastic, but with a nice rubberized coating.
One of the biggest focuses of the device will be its awesome 13-megapixel camera. We expect Sony to include its new Exmor R sensor for better low-light performance, and the pictures you can see below don’t look bad at all.
The Xperia Mint will allegedly come with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich on board with an update to 4.1 Jelly Bean expected to come soon after the launch. It’s also said to pack a couple of interesting tweaks to the stock UI, so for example when entering the multitasking screen, you can select to have a couple of widgets staying always on top, similarly to the feature on the Galaxy S III where you can watch a video and text at the same time.
Navigating will be handled by three capacitive on screen buttons, much like on the Galaxy Nexus. Check out the samples below and let us know what you think, could this be your next smartphone?
