Sony Xperia miro & tipo announced with full details

Sony Xperia tipo

Just a while ago, Sony has revealed its Xperia miro on Facebook with little info. Now they have officially announced the Xperia miro and tipo with more details on its hardware and dimensions.

For the Xperia miro, it runs on a modest 800MHz Qualcomm MSM72275A processor with 512MB of RAM and 4GB of storage (2.2GB user accessible). Fortunately the storage is expandable via microSD up to 32GB. Over at the front, it has a 3.5″ TFT display that pushes a rather low 480×320 resolution. It comes with a 5MP camera at the back (HD not mentioned) and a front facing VGA camera. It is 9.9mm thick and it weighs 110grams.

For an entry level device, the Xperia miro packs a rather huge 1500mAh capacity battery which is one of the biggest in its class. Sony claims a battery usage life of more than 24 hours for the miro. Considering the better spec dual-core 1GHz Xperia U is priced at RM899, we would expect the Xperia miro to be priced around RM700 range or less.

Next is the new Xperia tipo which is formerly known as the Tapioca ST21i. Just like the Xperia miro, the Xperia tipo also runs on a 800MHz Qualcomm MSM7225A processor with 512MB RAM and 2.9GB of storage (2.5GB user accessible) that’s also expandable with microSD. The screen is smaller at 3.2″ TFT with 480×320 resolution and the glass is said to be scratch resistant. In terms of imaging, it comes with a 3.2MP camera that shoots VGA video. The Xperia tipo comes in 4 colours – Classic White, Classic Black, Deep Red & Navy Blue.

Despite its low specification hardware, it also runs on the current Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS. The Xperia tipo is juiced up with a 1,500mAh battery which claims to provide more than 24 hours of usage. For those that uses more than 1 SIM card, there’s also a dual SIM version called Xperia tipodual. No pricing details were given but both devices are said to be commercially available in Q3 2012.
