A Preview of the Sony Xperia Play 2

27th February 2012

The original PlayStation Phone, the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play, struggled to set the world alight, and was ultimately one of 2011's biggest flops. Saying that, Sony are reportedly working on a sequel sans Ericsson branding: the Sony Xperia Play 2.

According to a leaked photo and specs, the phone will sport a more angular chassis than its last-gen sibling, housing a larger 4.3-inch 1280 x 720 HD touchscreen. This, of course, will be paired with a slide-out set of PlayStation keys, which will feature a light-up strip along the bottom.

While it's still unclear whether the rumours are true there's talk that the Xperia Play 2 will also pack an improved 1.5GHz dual-core processor, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, an 8.1 megapixel camera with 1080p HD video and Exmor R sensor, and access to Sony's PlayStation Suite.

Details on the handset's availability are still TBC.

A full review will be published here once the phone has been released.
