Sony Xperia J gets previewed, photographed from all sides
The Sony Xperia T flagship is not the only smartphone that the Japanese company is expected to make official in the forthcoming days. There's also the Sony Xperia J, which we first saw posing for the camera several weeks ago. We are dealing with a low- to mid-range device that stands out with its 4-inch screen sporting a resolution of 480 by 854 pixels. It is also nice knowing that Android 4.0 comes pre-installed on the device.

Other than that, there is little that the Sony Xperia J can impress us with. The chip inside it is the humble MSM7227a by Qualcomm accompanied by 512MB of RAM. There is a 5-megapixel auto-focus camera with LED flash on its back. It can be used to shoot videos, but only up to VGA resolution. Other highlights include a 1,700mAh battery and a microSD card slot for storage expansion. Judging by previous leaks, the smartphone will come in black, white, or pink.

Given the rather modest hardware specification of the Sony Xperia J, we expect it to be a competitively priced offering tailored for the younger crowd. In addition, it will most likely target consumers who need a screen of a decent size, yet cannot afford spending a small fortune on a high-end model. The Sony Xperia J is expected to be unveiled officially during IFA 2012.

That's what I thought, too. It's quite nice looking, though. I know some square-ish phones that are REALLY ugly.

This phone should be patent. With no ugly curves.

This will probably be comparable to the iphone 5 I would imagine due to the size, obviously without NFC or such a good screen, but then again lets remember that this will also be a hell of a lot cheaper than the overpriced iphone, and lets be most honest, the xperia j will look a lot nicer too.

It will be 150 Euros, which I find insane for the awesome features it gives...
