Sony Xperia SP, 4.6-inch dual-core LTE Android phone for P19,990

Sony just announced their latest LTE handset, the Sony Xperia SP set to be available by the end of the month for Php19,990. It joins Sony’s list of LTE-capable handsets which include the Sony Xperia V, Xperia Z, and Xperia ZL.

With Sony’s mobile design expertise, the Xperia SP is yet again a beautiful phone with a premium design. It has a precision-crafted co-moulded aluminum frame for a seamless look that is both sleek and solid. It also has this cool color-changing “transparent element” with illuminations you can customize whenever you get an alert, incoming calls, or even when you’re just playing your music.

The Xperia SP has a stunning 4.6” HD Reality Display with Sony’s latest Mobile Bravia Engine 2 for sharp visuals with superior brightness. The engine makes adjustment to the picture by adding new real-time contrast optimisation to the sharpness enhancement, high-quality color management and noise reduction. Same as what the Bravia TV does.

Powering the Xperia SP is a 1.7GHz dual-core Snapdragon Krait processor with 1GB RAM and 8GB internal storage to go with a microSD slot.

This LTE handset boasts of a fast 8-megapixel camera with HDR and Sony’s Exmor RS for mobile camera technology that allows you to shoot bright photos even under low-light conditions. Front camera is limited to a VGA resolution only though.

Battery on the Sony Xperia SP is rated at 2370mAh. This handset will be available by the end of May in black and white colors for Php19,990.

  1. Will Globe’s LTE support the LTE on this phone? So lets say I buy an unlocked Xpperia SP from a retail store, and I subscribe to a postpaid plan on Globe which allows mobile data, will it work on this phone’s LTE or will it limit me to just 3G???

  2. 19,990? haha mahal, some retailers are selling this for only 16,000 below

  3. Oo nga. some retailers nga 16k below kaya nung nakita ko natempt akong bilin. Sana magkaroon ka ng review about this phone. I’ll wait for it before buying. :)

  4. End of May? I already have this phone since first week of May. This phone is faster than SGS3, even though is “just dual core”, and has a better chipset, the GPU is adreno 320, same GPU on SGS4 snapdragon version and HTC one, Xperia Z, ZL and is definitely compatible with Globe LTE.

    • Does the front and back camera of this phone is okay? Can you give us a picture which is not edited? I’m planning to buy this next week. Hoping for feedbacks from you. Thanks!
