The Sony xperia Nypon will feature 8.1-megapixel Exmor R BSI sensor loaded camera capable of 1080p HD compete with LG’s Nova display clad Optimus Black and Nokia 701 smartphones.
Sony Ericsson will also introduce an entry level like midrange smartphone in 2012 xperia family which has been codenamed as Tapioca. With model name ST21i, the Tapioca handset will feature a single-core 800 MHz mobile processor with 512 MB RAM and 4 GB onboard storage.

The upcoming Sony Ericsson smartphones in 2012 xperia category will come with Android 2.3.7 Gingerbread running by default and will be capable of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade. Unlike the other Android based smartphones, Sony Ericsson devices take a while to reach the Indian shores. Also the updates for the same take more time to reach the consumers. That is one reason why people consider competing devices over the Sony Ericsson devices.
