Sony plans budget smartphone with a large display

Budget smartphones usually come with small displays and cut-down hardware specs. Sony appears to have a different vision on the matter, though – the acclaimed Japanese company plans to launch a new budget-oriented smartphone with a really large 6.1-inch display.

The new company product is still shrouded in mystery and the only information we have comes from the popular GFXbench test. According to it, the device, which has the D2203 brand name, belongs to the Xperia T product line and sports a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor with four Cortex-A7 cores at 1.2 GHz. The rest of the specs include Adreno 305 graphics, a 6.1-inch display at 854 x 480 pixels, 0.8 GB of RAM (likely 768 MB), 1.7 GB of storage (likely 4 GB total) and a 4.7 MP rear camera. There’s also 1 GB of RAM, a microSD card slot, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and NFC.

The unnamed Sony smartphone will run Android 4.4.2 KitKat. Its price and release date are unknown as of now, though.
