Two new Sony handsets expected to launch later this year have been pictured out in the wild. The Sony Tapioca and the Sony Nypon are both said to be low- to mid-range Android-powered devices that featured in the Japanese company’s 2012 roadmap which was leaked on January 18.
The Tapioca, a third of which is pictured above, is also referred to as the “LT21i,” and is scheduled to launch in July. It will reportedly feature a 3.2-inch HVGA display and an 800MHz single-core processor. It will only offer 512MB of RAM and 4GB on internal storage, though the latter is likely to be expandable with a microSD card slot. It’s got Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, as you’d expect, and a 3.2-megapixel rear-facing camera.
But before we see the Tapioca, we should see the Nypon — pictured above. This device is also known as the “LT22i,” and is scheduled to launch in April, according to that roadmap. Unfortunately there are no specifications to accompany this image, but according to a previous report, this particular device will be a little more exciting, with a 4-inch qHD Reality display, and an 8-megapixel camera capable of 1080p video recording.
Neither of these devices are expected to be all that groundbreaking, according to the report, but they may be of interest to those who are after a new budget Android handset this year.
Will you be looking forward to the Tapioca and the Nypon?
