Sony has lifted the lid on two new additions to the Xperia range, aimed at the lower-end of the market.
Unveiled on Facebook, the social-networking focussed Miro teams a 3.5-inch display with a five megapixel camera and runs Android Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box.
The handset provides customisable illuminated warnings of new messages and profile updates and features a front-facing camera for video calls.
Sony’s Music Unlimited streaming service comes is pre-installed, with xLOUD audio technology augmenting the phone’s music credentials.
The Tipo is a very different beast. Purportedly aimed at first-time smartphone buyers, it’s designed to be easy to use and comes with a dedicated set-up guide and apps to enable neophytes to keep tabs on their data usage.
Like the Miro, this also rocks Android 4.0, but features a smaller 3.2” scratch-resistant mineral glass display and a 3.2-megapixel camera.
However, its real USP will be a dual-SIM version that will allow owners to switch between networks for the cheapest calls.
Both handsets are due to land some time during Q3.
