Sony Xperia sola coming to India on May 18, could be priced as low as INR 20K

Sony is all set to launch another Android smartphone in the Indian market in the form of Xperia sola. This Android beauty comes with company’s all new floating  touch, which allows consumers to browse the web by hovering their finger above the screen so it acts like a moving curser, without actually having to touch the display.

Powered by 1GHz dual core processor, Xperia sola is expected to launch as early as May 18, as per the pre-order listing on Infibeam. The pricing of the smartphone is still now confirmed as Flipkart and Infibeam, both have listed different prices like INR 19,999 and INR 22,999 respectively.

It will be joined by Xperia U from the company in the mid-range smartphone segment, which is likely to become available sooner than sola.

Here is quick comparison between the two to help you decide.

    Yeah but it doesn’t perform as good as on Galaxy S II. Perhaps its the clock rate what makes the difference. But just dont expect graphics performance to be as good as we see on the S II just because they use the same GPU.

    Why has sony given the sola a secondary camera ? in this case the xperia U seems like a better buy ! I mean secondary camera is a more usefull thing than NFC !! drop the nfc and give us the secondary camera !!

    Android need bigger battery. Sony will never learn. Always leave some flaw that attract criticism.

    /corrections:

    1. The chipset inside the Xperia U is the same as the one in Xperia Sola [and Xperia P for that matter]
    They share the ST-Ericsson NovaThor U8500 with a Mali 400 GPU.

    2. The Xperia U & Xperia Sola also have 8GB of total onboard memory of which 2GB is allocated to system and 2GB for Apps.

    Please check the whitepapers of the phones and dont just copy paste stuff from random sites.
