Sony is not limited to the new Xperia phones from CES and MWC and prepares new models, but I can’t say I’m too surprised by this, especially that they are midrange or low end models. This, excepting the exciting Xperia Hayabusa. Anyway, today we will find out new details about Sony ST21i Tapioca, one of those models with modest endowments that I was talking about.
Tapioca’s existence was revealed last week when the phone arrived on the web in the form of some images. Today we have a confirmation of specifications leaked on the web lately through benchmark testing results. We are dealing here with a phone with an 800 MHz processor, 512 MB RAM, 3.2 inch display with resolution of 320×480 pixels and a 3 megapixel camera. The terminal is running on Android 4.0 ICS and the troublesome benchmark is NenaMark 2 in this case.
NenaMark publish their results online and in this case revealed the phone model, its score in tests, screen resolution, what kind of GPU and CPU frequency used, etc. It’s a Qualcomm CPU with a Adreno 200 GPU. Tapioca seems now the low end of the Sony model, so we have a very reasonable price. I see it as a rival for HTC Wildfire S, or rather Wildfire C, which is rumored to be an HTC One adapted to the low end market. We will keep you updated with the latest news about Sony ST21i Tapioca, surely a trending topic on the web. You will be the first one to hear from us.
