Everyone is wondering why Sony doesn’t tackle the area of Windows Phone 8 devices, but now they just might… After all we’ve been receiving quite a bunch of Sony Xperia concepts with Windows Phone on board. The latest is the Sony Xperia W8 model, pictured below and designed by Ben Ling.
We’re talking about a smartphone with a 5 inch Full HD screen, a 13 megapixel camera with LED flash and Exmor RS sensor. The cam supports 16x digital zoom and upfront we’ve got another camera, a 1.9 megapixel one also with 1080p capture. Other specs include a quad core 2.3 GHz Krait processor, a Qualcomm MSM8260A Snapdragon S4 Pro CPU with Adreno 320 GPU. The handset measures 9.5 mm in thickness, weighs 125 grams, has a huge 3 GB of RAM, although Windows Phone 8 runs just fine on 1 GB.
There’s also 4G LTE, NFC, 32 GB of storage and Sony Mobile Bravia Engine moves to version 4. There’s also a Li-Ion 2500 mAh battery, plus the usual Sony technologies: White Magic and XLOUD. Sony Xperia W8 sounds good, but considering didn’t create such a powerful phone for Google’s Android, I doubt they’d go through the trouble of making one for Microsoft.
