Sony to offer affordable 5-inch smartphone
Sony will try to capture some more market share later this year by introducing a new affordable 5-inch smartphone that will serve the mid-range of the market.
Very few details are known as of now but the new Sony product is expected to feature a MediaTek MT6589 processor with four Cortex-A7c computational cores that will operate at 1.2 GHz. Also, supposedly the smartphone will be manufactured by the Taiwanese company Arima Communications. The new Sony smartphone is expected in Q3 2013.
Once released the new Sony product is likely to find a welcoming home in emerging markets such as India where Sony’s Xperia E has been selling very well.
