The first photos of Sony's mid-range Xperia SP smartphone, which was previously known by its HuaShan codename, have just surfaced. Those show the handset alongside the Xperia V and reveal that the Xperia SP smartphone has a bigger footprint than that of Xperia V, suggesting that the smartphone will sport a display larger than 4.3-inches.
The Sony Xperia SP will be available in three region-specific versions - C5302, C5303 and C5306. They will all feature a 720p display, Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro MSM8960T chipset with 1.7 GHz dual-core Krait CPU and Adreno 320 graphics. The C5303 will also add LTE radio, while the other two will only offer HSPA.
