Designer Sanjaya Kanishka imagined a brand new Sony Walkman phone, one that adopts the Xperia branding and has some midrange features. The focus here is rather on the audio side, then on high end hardware. The phone relies on a dual core Krait processor, a Snapdragon S4 at 1 GHz, working with 1 GB of RAM.

Sony Xperia Walkman adopts the traditional Sony design, that involves glossy plastic, plus the brand new round side buttons that we saw on the Xperia E. There are no physical or capacitive keys upfront, being replaced with virtual buttons. Also the handset’s top is sloped on the front, just like on the Xperia T and J. This device features a 3.7 inch LED backlit TFT screen with a 480 x 854 pixel resolution, Sony Sensor on Lens technology and Mobile Bravia Engine 2 tech. At the back there’s a 5 megapixel camera with Exmor R sensor and LED flash.

This is an Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean music phone with Sony’s TimeScape UI 2.0, 8 GB of storage and HDMI via MHL. On the audio side we’ve got a ton of goodies, like SRS dual mobile speakers, Sony xLOUD engine, 2.1 virtual surround sound, HD voice with noise cancelation and a brand new Walkman player. The back side of the Sony Xperia Walkman is impressive, since it’s coated with matte rubber plastic with very good grip. More details are available in the source link below, if you’re wondering, but overall this is a very good music phone.
