Xperia Play gets teardown, hardware shown off

Chinese website TGBus has torn down the Xperia Play phone that's not only not yet released, but not even confirmed by its makers. The teardown offers a glimpse at some of the hardware inside the device, including Synaptics touch software and a dedicated chip, a Cypress TrueTouch screen, a Broadcom Wi-Fi chip, and a Qualcomm PM8058 power management chip. While the existence of the device seems to be confirmed by this teardown, an official introduction of the device is expected to come at the Mobile World Congress show in February.

An earlier report has the handset sporting a 1,500mAh battery along with a four-inch, 854x480 pixel display. There is both 512MB of RAM and 512MB of ROM onboard, along with a microSD slot, SIM slot, micro-USB port and a 5-megapixel camera with an LED flash. Most of these features, when possible, are confirmed by the teardown. [via Kotaku]
