Sony’s first mid-range 4G smartphone – the Xperia SP – will soon be available through Three, Phones 4u and Carphone Warehouse, the vendors’ official websites confirm.

Customers looking to pick up the Xperia SP on pay monthly tariffs can currently register their interest on the network and retailers’ ‘Coming Soon’ pages to be notified when the handset is ready to order.

Powered by Android Jelly Bean, the SP’s standout features include a 4.6-inch 720p HD screen with Mobile Bravia Engine 2, a 1GHz dual core Snapdragon S4 processor and an eight-megapixel camera with an Exmor RS sensor for low-light snapping.

All this is crammed into a precision-crafted aluminium frame, which features an illuminated ‘transparent element’ that you can personalise by colour to alert you of various incoming missives.

Of course, because the SP also comes with 4G LTE support, we reckon there’s a good chance that it should be landing soon on EE’s super-fast network too.

Alas, it doesn’t feature any water or resistant capabilities, which are still the USPs of Sony’s flagship smartphone, the Xperia Z.

Pricing is as-yet unknown, but given the SP’s relatively low-key specs, we think it should be available free on pay monthly tariffs from around £20.

Rest assured, as soon as we know more, you will too.
