Sony Xperia C strikes e-retailers in India, already up for pre-order

The Sony Xperia C that was first seen in June this year, has arrived in India and even though the company hasn’t acknowledged its presence in the country, some shopping portals have put it up for pre-order. If these retailers are to be believed, it will be shipped to interested users by the second week of October which means we won’t have to wait very long for the official unveiling.

The mid-range Sony smartphone shows off a huge 5-inch capacitive TFT touchscreen that delivers qHD visuals in 960 x 540p resolution. Under the display lies an intuitive user interface that can be attributed to the Android Jelly Bean 4.2.2 platform and it may receive OTA updates for the later versions of the OS in the future as well.

The latter boasts of attributes such as 1920 x 1080p video recording capability, pulsed LED flash, auto focus, digital zoom, face detection and more. There’s 4GB of internal storage that can be expanded further by up to 32GB using a microSD card.

This Xperia phone sports dual SIM card slots and the device drenched in shades of white, black and purple acquires multitasking properties from a quad core 1.2GHz MTK6589 processor and 1GB of RAM. A 2330mAh battery hides under the hood to cough up talk time of about 10 hours in the 3G mode.
