Victor Cao offers us a new vision on the Walkman series of music phones, giving them the Xperia branding and a new look. The new device pictured here is the Sony Xperia W concept, that has an iPhone-ish back side.

Sony xperia W_2

The handset uses virtual buttons on Android and the typical Walkman player with minimalistic options. This Walkman smartphone has all the best acoustic technologies one can get nowadays: Clear Bass, Clear Audio and S Master MX. Specs of the Xperia Walkman W include a 1.7 GHz quad core CPU, probably the Snapdragon 400 or 600 and 2 GB of RAM, as well as NFC and maybe 32 GB of storage.

The concept Xperia measures 9 mm in thickness and seems to bundle a pair of sexy headphones. The front side of the Xperia W is to me a combo between the latest Xperia designs and the Samsung Omnia 7 for some reason. By the way, the display incorporated here is a 4.6 inch Triluminos HD display, probably with Full HD res. Is the Walkman back yet?

    oh welcome SONY I thought that I have lost hope after departure of sonyericsson because I’m sonyericsson w series fans even now I have wt19i live with walkman,since 2011 I want to upgrade to big screen walkman at 4.5 to 5 inches but 4.6 inches I’m certified my worried is,at the back I saw a single speaker,walkman phone should be 2 speakers stereo can’t work with single speaker.megabass+xloud technology must be include inside walkman application.farewell sonyericsson,well done SONY.#musicislife

  • chiderah

    total disappointment from sony,by taking over from question is………….can we see this beautiful walkman in real life? it is heartbreaking. i’m stuck with wt19i since 2011.because of love i have with Sonyericsson walkman i still maintain lww despite having 3.2 screen.but i’m waiting and hope to see big walkman phone in my life again.

  • edgar

    wow i like that phone the best

  • seraph

    Sony has a good name but too dull to manufacture a good Walkman phone like this.they should be the first to produce greatest android Walkman with ultra bass like olden days Walkman cassette or sonyericcson management wake up,don’t wait htc to take over.walkman has a strong name than size 4.8inches tall and wider like samsung phones. Because sony phones are tall but not wide
