Sony Xperia SP announced with aluminum frame, NXT design cues, and Exmor RS camera

Sony made a press conference, as promised, and unveiled both the Xperia SP and Xperia L handsets, just as expected. The Xperia SP sports aluminum frame and Sony's NXT design cues, with an illuminated transparent strip at the bottom, which pulsates in different colors, depending on the notification. Still, we get this year's power/lock key, and a variety of different colors for the chassis you can see in the slideshow below.

It also sports a generous 4.6" 720p super-sensitive display that has a "Glove Mode", 1.7 GHz Snapdragon S4 Pro, 1GB of RAM, 8 GB of storage plus microSD slot, 2370 mAh battery, and an 8 MP Exmor RS camera sensor to round up a good mid-range package. It is still amazing that now we are calling such a handset mid-range, but that's the law of the land in the Android world. The handset is destined for the European and Asian markets in Q2 for now, with price tag rumors hovering around the EUR 300 ($388) mark SIM-free.
