Sony Xperia tipo dual Specs



Sony Xperia tipo dual is a low-end Android smartphone suitable for first-time smartphone owners. It comes in a dual-SIM flavo and has a 3.2-inch HVGA (320x480) display made out of scratch-resistant mineral glass. Inside it runs an 800MHz single-core Qualcomm processor, and on the back we have a 3.2-megapixel camera. What is really worth noting, however, is that the Xperia tipo is equipped with a 1,500mAh battery, which should deliver over 24 hours of continuous usage time, according to Sony.
