Sony Mobile Philippines announces the Sony Xperia SP
Sony Mobile Philippines officially announced on their Facebook Page the Sony Xperia SP for the Philippines. Fresh off the heels of the launch of their flagship, the Sony Xperia Z, the Xperia SP is a more affordable alternative that offers competitive specifications, a fresh modern design, and all the bells and whistles you’d like to have in a smartphone. The SRP is PHp19,990 but online stores like Widget City are offering it for just Php16,900. That’s a pretty sweet deal given the full spec sheet (which you’ll find below).

I’m not sure if LTE connectivity is offered but if it is then I would recommend this phone hands down 110%. We’ll try to confirm if the LTE band is compatible locally. Watch this space for updates in the next few days.
