Sony Ericsson Xperia Neo announced, heading to Vodafone

February 13th, 2011

Sony Ericsson Xperia NeoIt looks like the Xperia Play isn’t going to be the only reveal at this year’s Barcelona tech event, as Sony Ericsson has outed the Xperia Neo at its pre-MWC launch event.

The handset, as predicted, sports a similar form factor to the Sony Ericsson Vivaz, yet ups the game with its 8 megapixel camera with HD video capture and Sony’s Exmor R sensor on board. The Gingerbread-equipped smartphone will also arrive sporting a 3.7 inch 854×480 Reality display complete with Sony Ericsson’s TimeScape UI, and powered by a 1GHz Snapdragon processor. Sadly, no dual-core action on this MWC reveal.

Although its full specs are yet to be posted, Sony Ericsson also outed the Neo’s measly 320MB of internal memory with microSD expansion, integrated FM radio, USB syncing and its front-facing 2 megapixel webcam, a feature sadly missed out on the Android-toting Xperia arc.

Once available, the Sony Ericsson Xperia Neo will be available in Blue and Red, with Vodafone UK confirming it will be exclusively stocking a Red edition of the upcoming smartphone. Its pricing and release date is yet to be confirmed.
