New Xperia handsets include dual-sim option

Sony has unveilled two new smartphones, the Xperia miro and Xperia tipo. Both Android 4.0 handsets are said by Sony to be for two different target markets; the miro, with an emphasis on sound, is aimed towards social media users, while the tipo is geared for first-time smartphone users and provides options for both single- and dual-SIM configurations.

The Xperia miro, boasting a 3.5-inch display with 320x480 resolution, is powered by an 800MHz Qualcomm processor and provides 4GB of storage. A five-megapixel rear-facing camera is joined by a front-facing version, and contactless DLNA connectivity is added to the usual Bluetooth and Wi-Fi offerings. Music Unlimited is pre-installed to showcase Sony's integrated xLOUD audio technology, and social network connectivity is heavily integrated.

The Xperia tipo has the same processor as the miro, however the smaller 3.2-inch display has a reduced color range despite an equal resolution. Storage is also reduced to 2.9GB, and the 3.2-megapixel rear-facing camera lacks a front-facing counterpart. Despite the reduced specifications, the tipo does offer a dual-SIM option in the form of Xperia tipodual.

All three smartphones will be launched worldwide in the third quarter of this year, with the prices undetermined at this time.
