Sony is widely expected to launch its next top-end smartphone, Sirius, at Mobile World Congress later in February. Now the tech community is abuzz with speculation that the company will also showcase a mid-range smartphone, named Xperia G, at the event.
Twitter user ViziLeaks has posted two photos and key specifications of the upcoming Xperia G. As per the photos posted by ViziLeaks, the device will sport the same look as other models in the Japanese manufacturer’s portfolio, but will not have water- and dust-resistant certification unlike most of its siblings.
Xperia G is said to have a 4.8-inch screen, though the resolution is not yet known. Other key specifications leaked online include 8GB internal storage, 4G connectivity, 1GB RAM and 8MP camera.
Sony recently moved out of the laptop market, after selling its Vaio unit to a Japanese investment group. The beleaguered manufacturer has said that it will refocus on its TV business and cut 5,000 jobs
