Sony Xperia J due late October, £159 + VAT

Sony Xperia J handset due at the end of next month


We are pleased to confirm that the newly announced Sony Xperia J is due to be available SIM-free the week commencing October 29th, priced at £159 (£190.80 inc. VAT). Initially, it is the black and white versions that are due to arrive. Pink and Gold variants of the J were also announced last week, but as of yet we do not have a SIM-free ETA for these.

The Xperia J is part of a range of new smartphones announced by Sony at IFA last week, which also includes its new flagship, the Xperia T, and the Xperia V. The Xperia J slots into the middle of the new range, which follows on from a similar set of handsets (Xperia S, P and U), which were released earlier this year.

The new Xperia range offers a stylish look that combines the design of Sony’s 2011 ‘Arc’ handsets with that of the Xperias released at the beginning of 2012. As well as this slick new design, the J offers a strong feature set for a handset that comes in at the sub £200 price point:

  • Sleek and slender Arc design
  • Android 4.0 ICS (due for upgrade to Jelly Bean shortly after launch)
  • Bright and clear 4” FWVGA display
  • 1GHz Qualcomm processor
  • 5 megapixel camera with autofocus and LED flash
  • Bluetooth
  • Wi-Fi
  • GPS
  • xLoud Experience – audio filter technology
  • 50GB of cloud storage with Box
  • DLNA certified
