In the meantime, another handset from the Japanese manufacturer, Xperia LT25i Tsubasa has been spotted in the wild lately, in a couple of benchmark tests. Hence, the possibilities have appeared that the company might be unveiling these new devices at the pre-IFA events, which will happen at the end of this month.
As per the report by Xperia Blog, “The Sony LT25 will carry the ‘Tsubasa’ codename and will come in both LTE and HSPA+ versions from what we can tell. Given its model number, we imagine it will sit just below the Xperia S (LT26i) in terms of specs.”
The Sony Tsubasa handset has popped up in NenaMark2 and AnTuTu benchmarks. NenaMark2 shows the handset to have a 710 x 1280 pixel resolution while the other shows it to have 720 x 1196 pixel resolution. NenaMark2 highlights the Tsubasa handset to have an Andreno 225 GPU that means it will run the 1.5 GHz dual core Qualcomm S4 Snapdragon MSM8960 chipset. This bit of information has been confirmed by AnTuTu, which displays the processor clock speed as 1.5 GHz.
The benchmarks suggest that the Xperia LT25i Tsubasa is an Android 4.0.4 ICS based smartphone that will likely have LTE and HSPA+ connectivity options.
As Tsubasa is below the Xperia S, analyst predict the handset to be priced at Rs 30,000 approximately in India. However, there is no possible word on when the handset will be launched.
