The Xperia SP was born out of a simple paper mockup and a strong vision of creating something truly unique. Our designers Jessie Zhao and Toshihide Umedan had a clear idea of crafting a smartphone where the display virtually floats in thin air. To be able to achieve this, we paired their design vision with our 60 years of Sony engineering experience. We created a transparent antenna and a body that was solid while retaining a floating feel. Then we focused on getting the right weight and shape – since balance and proportion is crucial for the overall user experience. Finally we chose the colors black, white and red, which complement the metal structure as well as the quality of each component.
Quality precision craftsmanship
Xperia SP lifts craftsmanship to a whole new level. Using co-moulding technology which allowed us to create a unique solid design, this NFC Android phone comes with a seamless look and feel that melts into ones hand. Paired with premium materials, Sony engineering and precision-crafted details, you’ll get a smartphone that lets you experience true design innovation.
Makes your personality shine through
The illuminating, color-changing belt makes your Android smartphone extra personal. It will notify you of everything from incoming calls and text messages to Facebook notifications. And when listening to music, the illumination will pulse to the beat, becoming more intense as you crank up the volume.
Truly impressive viewing – HD Reality Display
Feel like you’re there with the razor sharp and super bright HD screen. An HD phone, Xperia SP brings you one of the highest levels of screen resolution available – 720 progressive scan, for crisp pictures and no jagged edges. Expertise from our BRAVIA TV engineers goes into our mobile screens, to bring you the same quality you’d expect from a top quality HDTV. The 4.6” HD Reality Display provides razor sharp pictures – and superior brightness. And with the wide color gamut it gives you the widest color spectrum, so you can view every detail in vivid color.
Exmor RS for mobile – stunning shots in any light
The camera is built with the same modules as leading Sony cameras. Exmor RS for mobile is an evolution of our Sony image sensor technology, with a next-generation BSI light sensor. By adopting the technology of luminance and color noise reduction, we’ve created a camera that snaps highly detailed shots with low noise – even in challenging lighting conditions. You’re now also able to reproduce objects in more vivid colors and capture night images and faces with stunning clarity.
