We, too love a good phone leak just like anyone else and in today’s slot, we have a number from Sony codenamed ST21i2. The model number appeared on the Indonesian Telecoms Regulatory Body with the tag Xperia Tipo Dual and chances are high that it is the official name of the smartphone. We had earlier showcased few of the live shots of the Xperia ST21i, and Sony is yet to name this might be named the Xperia Tipo. Chances are high that both the phones will have a similar design as well, just like the Dual-SIM variants of similar smartphones that we’ve seen in the past. The design of the ST21i isn’t very inspiring or particularly attractive. For one, it’s quite a chunky little phone and that double chin at the bottom isn’t winning it any beauty awards, either. Sony will stick with the same three capacitive buttons for navigation and this phone will join their NXT series. Either that, or Sony may decide on a new series for their mainstream phones.
Xperia Blog reports that the Indonesian Postel site has confirmed the name of the phone. The models have been targeted towards emerging markets, so chances are high that they will soon come to India. Now for the important bit. The ST2i2 is expected to come with a 3.2-inch display with a resolution of 320 x 480 pixels, it will be powered by a Qualcomm MSM7227 processor with a clock speed of 800 MHz, along with an Adreno 200 GPU. There will be 512 MB of RAM, a 3MP camera without LED flash capable of shooting at a resolution of 640 x 480. The Tipo Dual will come with a 1450 mAh battery and will come with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich onboard.
Looking at the specs itself, chances are high that the phone will be one of the low-budget Android handsets and if Sony does get the price right, this could well potentially be the new budget Android phone for the masses.
