Ben Ling has shown us at least a dozen of Sony Xperia concepts and now he’s back with the Xperia Q, a phone that has a small display, by today’s standards, but also a pretty impressive camera sensor. We’re dealing with a handset that uses a 4 inch TFT HD display, that’s both shatter proof and scratch resistant.
At the back of the new Xperia we find a 13 megapixel camera with LED flash, Exmor RS sensor, 16x digital zoom and Full HD video recording. The front camera is a 1.3 megapixel one, also with 1080p capture. Under the hood we’ve got the already classic dual core 1.4 GHz Krait processor, the Qualcomm MSM8260A Snapdragon S4 Pro, with Adreno 320 GPU. Xperia Q measures 8.2 mm in thickness, has NFC, weighs 115 grams and features 1 GB of RAM and LTE.
It runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, offers 16 GB of internal storage and its display supports Sony Mobile Bravia Engine 3 technology. Among the technologies available here we find Floating Touch, White Magic and xLOUD, all from Sony. Finally, under the hood there’s a microSD card slot and a Li-Ion 1750 mAh battery. As far as design goes, we’re dealing with what looks like plastic material, maybe polycarbonate and a small chin at the bottom, plus a bit of a sloped edge at the top.
The phone looks pretty narrow and I like the way the Android keys are integrated. I can’t figure out if they’re capacitive or virtual, although I tend to believe it’s the former.

Sony Xperia Acro L is a mockup by Ben Ling that fits the usual Xperia latest gen pattern of a rectangular phone with 720p screen and top notch camera. We’re dealing with a handset with a 4.5 inch HD display, that’s also shatter proof and scratch resistant. At the back we’ve got a 13 megapixel camera with LED flash, plus Exmor RS sensor.
The camera can go to 16x digital zoom and also Full HD video recording. At the front there’s a 2 megapixel camera with 1080p capture, available on this Xperia Acro L. Inside the newcomer created by Ben Ling we’ve got a dual core 1.7 GHz Krait processor and as usual with most new Xperia units dust and water resilience is guaranteed. Adreno 230 is brought on by the Snapdragon S4 CPU for kickass gaming and everything is encased inside a 10.5 mm thick package of a device that weighs 122 grams.
The hone has NFC, 1.5 GB of RAM, Android 4.0.4 ICS, upgradable to Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean and 32 GB of internal storage. Sony Mobile Bravia Engine 3 and xLOUD experience are also on board. Under the shell we’ve got a Li-Ion 2100 mAh battery, powering up the device. The phone has a sleek look and there’s a casing that seems to surround the body of the Xperia Acro L concept, with a form factor that’s a bit Nokia Lumia-ish, if you ask me…

teased us with an upcoming concept? It’s been weeks since then, but he delivered and here we are with a new PlayStation Phone or an “Xperia Play 2″, if you want.
Imagine the PS Vita combined with the HTC One X… and you get something like the Xperia Play Duo concept, shown below. Remember when Victor Cao
Victor says that the name “Duo” comes from the fact you can control both sides of the phone, front and back. The back area is basically a touchpad, just like on the PS Vita. Xperia Play Duo seems to have an upper and lower transparent surface, in the areas where you grip the handset for gaming purposes. As far as specs go, you get a 1.6 GHz quad core Krait CPU, 2 GB RAM, Adreno 320 GPU, a 4.6 inch HD touchscreen with anti glare and BE 2. Stereo speakers are also on board, as well as multiplayer support and a 3000 mAh battery.
This Xperia concept runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, it has PlayStation certification, Clear Bass, Clear Audio and an 8 megapixel camera with Full HD video. One touch NFC, Miracast and 32 GB of storage round up the specs list. Xperia Play Duo will also resist water, apparently. Ready to trade your console for a phone?

Sony Xperia NX, the device that combined the features of an Xperia smartphone and also the features of a Sony NEX camera? Well, the creator of the mockup, Razec from Esato is back with a finalized design of the device. We’re dealing with a cameraphone with a beautiful metallic case and what looks like a bright ring of light at the bottom below the Home virtual button.
There’s still a 24.5 megapixel camera at the back, a metallic ring around the camera and the handset has both a black and silver version. The camera looks so sci-fi it’s crazy and while we don’t have specs for this model, we’ve previously speculated on what it could include. Xperia NX/Yuuko may be able to do 1080p/60p/60i video, just like a NEX camera and the concept also mentions an APS-C sensor and interchangeable lens. It’s got Android in the Jelly Bean form probably and most likely the Sony customizations.
That means some cool icons, PlayStation certification, Mobile Bravia technology, xLOUD, some Exmor R maybe, TimeScape, MediaScape, Xperia Hot Shots app preinstalled and all the other things that the Xperia is known for, including kickass headphones and noise cancelling. The camera remains the strong point of this Xperia concept and the metallic body is supposed to appeal to photographers and other passionate Sony fans. Give this baby a quad core Snapdragon S4 Pro CPU, 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of storage, microSD and LTE and we’re happy!

Ben Ling has produced a number of Xperia concepts so far and some have been very interesting. The thing is that he doesn’t actually change much of the original designs of Sony phones, he just upgrades the specs and works around the main design. Such is the case of the Sony Xperia Neo S, yet another evolution of the Xperia Neo.
We’re dealing here with a 4.2 inch smartphone with a TFT scratch resistant capacitive touchscreen, an 8.1 megapixel camera with LED flash and 16X digital zoom. The handset’s cam does 1080p video capture and the Sony Xperia Neo S also comes with a a front 1.3 megapixel camera with 720p capture. Inside there’s a dual core 1.4 GHz Cortex A9 processor (NovaThor U8500) and other specs include 768 MB of RAM, Android 4.0.7 ICS and 8GB of storage. The smartphone measures 11.5mm in thickness and weighs 125 grams.
It has a 319 ppi pixel density and offers technologies like Sony Mobile BRAVIA Engine, xLOUD, Sony White Magic and a Li-Ion 1520 mAh battery. Other features are Bluetooth 4.0, multitouch for up to 4 fingers and a microSD card slot with 64GB support. Fancy this Xperia Neo S design?

Once again Ben Ling emailed us his fantasy Xperia device, the Sony Xperia R, packing a Super AMOLED display and a 12.1 megapixel camera. This Xperia concept features a 4.6 inch scratch resistant screen and its camera uses a LED flash, plus offers support for 32x digital zoom and 1080p video recording. Nothing out of the ordinary so far, right?
Sony Xperia R features a front 2 megapixel camera with 1080p capture, a quad core 2 GHz Cortex A9 processor and a chassis that measures 7.5mm in thickness. The device weighs 130 grams, features 2GB of RAM and runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, the freshly announced OS from Google I/O 2012. Other features include 32GB of storage and Ben Ling also mentions that the screen has a 398 ppi pixel density and that the Sony concept phone is both water and dust proof.
As usual we some of the typical Sony technologies for handsets: Mobile Bravia engine, White Magic technology and possibly even xLOUD. The handset packs a Li-Ion 2100 mAh battery, Bluetooth 4.0 and the screen supports multitouch for up to 10 fingers. Finally, the phone has a microSD card slot and NFC. As far as design goes, to me this model looks a bit like the Xperia Ion. I can see that there’s also a camera button on board, which is always a good thing.

With CES 2012 in full bloom now and Sony already announcing the Xperia S and Xperia Ion devices, it’s time to start searching for future handsets, such as the concept below. This Xperia concept was created by Csaba Fazekas, who chose to use the old-school physical buttons under the display, cramping up the space a bit.
This model is known as the Sony Ericsson Xperia Duo and last time I heard this codename it referred to a dual core phone, so I guess that this is also the case here. Xperia Duo probably comes with an 8, 10 or 12 megapixel camera, 1.5GHz dual core processor, 16GB of internal memory, 1GB of RAM and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich as the OS. In case I didn’t get it right with the OS and it’s still Gingerbread, there’s always the option to update.
What do you think? Will Sony get rid of physical buttons in the future?

Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc HD, aka Nozomi, now we have yet another work from Jsus, the same guy who created some appealing Sony Ericsson concepts. This time he seems to have tweaked an Xperia Arc handset, as shown in the following pictures.
After showing you the first real pics of the
The front side of the device is totally a Xperia Arc, while the profile shows us a big bump in the lower back area of the phone. This doesn’t look anything like other Sony Ericsson devices, to be honest. Also, those physical buttons below the display seem already antique right now, considering that Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich uses virtual buttons under the screen. I also don’t quite understand what that bump is for… It may allow the device to use a bigger battery, stuff in a LTE chip, a bigger camera sensor or who knows what.
It might also be that this model mimics the design of the Sony Tablet S, with a curved area like a folded magazine and a buttons placed in its sides, far from the user’s sight. Or it could just be a real phone, that will be coming soon and it got pictured ahead of time. Which one do you think it is?

Does this Xperia concept phone look like a monolith or what? The Sony Ericsson Xperia Prisma was created by Maika Sylva, from Rotterdam, Netherlands and while it may not be the most beautiful design, at least it’s original. A bit too wide for my taste, this handset also has some modern specs, that you can read below.
Xperia Prisma comes with a 1.4GHz processor, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich as the OS, a display with an 800 x 1000 pixel resolution and a chassis that’s 13mm thick. There’s also a 10 megapixel camera on board and support for 4G, WiFi and Bluetooth 3.0. The device weighs 140 grams and comes with the usual 3.5mm audio jack.
The classic capacitive Android buttons are on the sharp cut lower side of the phone, that stands out from the entire design. This look like more of an Xperia Mini series of device, so it may be the small and resilient kind, like the Xperia Active. The interface looks nice, but it seems that the image has been dragged and pulled to fit the screen, which is not exactly top notch editing. Now, you have your say about this Sony Ericsson concept…

Worry not, as this is one of those weekend posts not meant to stir up the mind too much… What we have here is a piece of work by Frank Tobias, the teaser of the Sony Ericsson Xperia X12 concept phone. This is the device’s box, packaging, whatever you want to call it.
Frank continues working on the device, that may include Android 3.x Honeycomb, if we judge by the blue image on the box. I can spot a semicircular Home button at the bottom part and maybe there are two more in there: Menu and Back, as usual for Android. I’m guessing that there’s an 8 or 12MP camera at the back and at least a dual core CPU inside.
What’s your lucky guess?
