In a post on Vodafone Australia’s blog, the carrier outlined their plans to bring the Sony Xperia SP to market. The Xperia SP is a well specced mid-ranged device that is sure to impress if it’s priced accordingly.
Sony are attempting to make the phone more ‘personal’ by adding an LED-lit bar to the bottom of the device which can light up in different colours for notifications. It can also pulse along with music that the device is playing. I’m not sure how that makes the device personal, but sure, it’s a cool little gimmick.
The specs are nothing to scoff at:
- 4.6-inch 720p Reality Display
- 1.7GHz Dual-Core CPU
- 8MP Camera (1080p video)
- 1GB RAM / 8GB Internal Memory
- DC-HSPA+ 42Mbps
Vodafone haven’t outlined a launch date or price just yet, though we’ll fill you in when they do.

As an undemanding phone, for your mum, for example, it would be nice.
A nice size. Kind of pretty and unusual. But not a phone for Android Addicts.
Presumably it’s the C5303 model that does LTE on the 1800 MHz band, which Vodafone is about to launch.
