Sony LT30p Mint gets detailed
27 Jul 2012
Likely to be next flagship Android smartphone
It's unusual to see a review of a phone long before it launches, but that's the case with the Sony LT30p Mint. Of course, the phone won't be called that when it launches, but that's the working title right now.
The Mobile Review site has got the lowdown and a number of shots of the working prototype. While this might not be the finished item, it certainly gives us a good idea of what Sony is planning for its next flagship phone.
That looks to be a phone running Ice Cream Sandwich rather than the Jelly Bean variation of Android (although there is still time for an upgrade) and packing a 13-megapixel camera, which can shoot 1080p video. There's also a 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor, 1GB of RAM, a 4.3-inch screen with 720p resolution, 16GB of on-board storage plus a microSD card slot for boosting that further.
Design-wise, it looks fairly typical, although there are no 'hard' keys visible on the initial shots. Likely to launch in August or September, possibly at the IFA event, it should be on the shelves in time for the Christmas run-up.
