Oh Sony…Why can’t you just do something… good…
So the device above is supposedly the next flagship device for Sony. It’s codename the Xperia “Mint” Model number LT30p. Here’s the specs we have so far:
4.3″ 720p HD display (probably bigger)
1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 processor
As you can see in the picture above, the device is about the same size as the Galaxy S III, so you can only think that the screen is actually a bit larger than 4.3″. Nevertheless, the device doesn’t really bring anything amazing to the game with the exception of a high mega pixel camera. The device is rumoured to be make its début at IFA so who knows when and if this device will make it to Canada.
As I’ve said before about Sony devices, they look good, but they lack that “something” to put it above the rest. I can’t say I’m worried about their future because Sony is such a huge company (unlike HTC who is also falling off a bit). However, if they want to get themselves into that upper echelon of smart phones, they need to start finding a way to launch flagships that measure up to the competition the same year as the competition, not a year later.
