Pictures leak of the Sony Xperia J’s colorful backside

Sony is long overdue to launch some new phones – perhaps they decided to take some extra time to get these releases right, as these will be some of the first products that were predominantly developed in the post Sony-Ericsson split era. We’ve been expecting to see some new top-shelf handsets announced at IFA next month, and now we’re getting a closer look at a budget device we may see there as well.

Leaked photos at Xperia Blog show phones available in white, pink, and black (see below). According to PA tipsters, the device is code-named the Sony ST26i and will come with a 4” qHD (540 x 960) screen, Android 4.0.4 (Ice Cream Sandwich) and a decidedly budget-oriented 1GHz single-core CPU and 512MB of RAM. The device reportedly will launch as the Xperia J. The new images only show off the back, but for the curious we were able to bring you a snapshot of the front back in May.

FWVGA is (480x854), qHD is (540x960).....Just felt I needed to rectify that.

Have you seen the Lumia line? Specifically the Lumia 900. The bright and vibrant colors are being reintorduced and popularized via Nokia and their new line of Windows Phones.

Sony can't stop spamming the market with the same phones but with very slight different in design! Sony, you are a big company and such marketing plan will not help you!

I'm thinking same, most of their phones look same with slight different. If you forgot the model name then you're lost.

I guess that the next generation of xperia phones wouldn't have a green liquid Sony Ericsson logo any more

well everyone will mistake it for a lumia 800 which is bad, and the specs........ the only two turn offs are the single-core 1ghz processor and the 512mb ram and if the prices is going to compete with the budget dual cores then theres no use buying this phone except for the fact that it looks good
