DesignQuality precision craftsmanship
Xperia SP lifts craftsmanship to a whole new level. Using co-molding technology which allowed us to create a unique solid design, this NFC Android phone comes with a seamless look and feel that melts into ones hand. Paired with premium materials, Sony engineering and precision-crafted details, you'll get a smartphone that lets you experience true design innovation.Makes your personality shine through
The illuminating, color-changing belt makes your Android smartphone extra personal. It will notify you of everything from incoming calls and text messages to Facebook notifications. And when listening to music, the illumination will pulse to the beat, becoming more intense as you crank up the volume.Letting design take the lead
The Xperia SP was born out of a simple paper mockup and a strong vision of creating something truly unique. Our designers Jessie Zhao and Toshihide Umedan had a clear idea of crafting a smartphone where the display virtually floats in thin air. To be able to achieve this, we paired their design vision with our 60 years of Sony engineering experience. We created a transparent antenna and a body that was solid while retaining a floating feel. Then we focused on getting the right weight and shape - since balance and proportion is crucial for the overall user experience. Finally we chose the colors black, white and red, which complement the metal structure as well as the quality of each component.Premium design, outside and inside - Sony unified UI
Whether you're on a Sony smartphone or tablet, you'll meet a consistent user interface on your devices and in all your Sony Media apps.
DisplayTruly impressive viewing - HD Reality Display
Feel like you're there with the razor sharp and super bright HD screen. An HD phone, Xperia SP brings you one of the highest levels of screen resolution available - 720 progressive scan, for crisp pictures and no jagged edges. Expertise from our BRAVIA® TV engineers goes into our cell phone screens, to bring you the same quality you'd expect from a top quality HDTV. The 4.6" HD Reality Display provides razor sharp pictures - and superior brightness. And with the wide color gamut it gives you the widest color spectrum, so you can view every detail in vivid color.True Screen intelligence - Mobile BRAVIA® Engine 2
The second generation of our acclaimed Mobile BRAVIA® Engine, Mobile BRAVIA® Engine 2 delivers an even better viewing experience by adding new real-time contrast optimization to the sharpness enhancement, high-quality color management and noise reduction. Mobile BRAVIA® Engine 2 is also able to analyze content type and adjust the image accordingly. Adding Mobile BRAVIA® Engine 2 to the Reality Display makes for the most intelligent HD cell phone screen - one that adapts automatically to display your content in the best way.
- (1) Contrast enhancement
- Contrast in images and video is enhanced by making the darkest parts slightly darker, which brings out details in the picture.
- (2) Color Management
- Color saturation is increased for specified color ranges, which makes the colors deeper and more vivid. And the intelligent Mobile BRAVIA® Engine 2 software reproduces skin color exactly as it appears to the naked eye.
- (3) Noise reduction
- Distortion and noise is reduced when streaming low-quality video from online sources, such as YouTube. Noise is reduced both to individual frames and between frames, for clearer viewing.
- (4) Sharpness filter
- Mobile BRAVIA® Engine 2 applies a sharpness filter to increase the overall detail level in the image. This is done by enhancing the edges and contrast without increasing noise.
BRAVIA® engineers have discovered that we remember colours more vividly than they really are. That's the kind of knowledge they put into creating brilliant colours for our screens. Get a peek at this precision craftsmanship in the video.
CameraStunning shots in any light - 8 MP camera with Exmor RS™ for mobile
The 8 megapixel camera is built with the same modules as leading Sony cameras. Exmor RS™ for mobile is an evolution of our Sony image sensor technology, with a next-generation BSI light sensor.

BatterySignificantly improve battery life with Battery STAMINA Mode
Smartphones use a lot of power, even when you're not actively using them. All those apps that you have on your phone may still be running in the background, draining your battery. Battery STAMINA Mode saves you wasted battery drain. It recognizes when you're not using your display and automatically turns off the functions you don't need, while keeping the notifications you want. As soon as you press the power button to wake up your screen, everything is up and running again.Get only the important notices
With Battery STAMINA Mode, Wi-Fi and data traffic are disabled during standby, but you still receive incoming calls, texts, and alarms. And since everyone has different needs, you can easily customize which apps you want to receive push notifications from, even in standby mode. Facebook notifications on or off? It's up to you.
