Since couple of years, we are used to the general myth of high-end smartphones being larger than lower-end ones. However, Sony D2203 is looking to change that perception now.
The company is working on a handset bearing the model number D2203, a huge phablet coming with very low-end specifications. Someone has placed the Sony D2203 through the paces of GFXBench, and because of this we are having a full spec list for this device.
It will feature a 6.1-inch display with the terrible 480×854 resolution (making for a pixel density of just 160 ppi), a 5 MP rear camera, and a VGA front-facing shooter.The phablet will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor with a 1.2 GHz quad-core Cortex-A7 CPU and 1GB of RAM. On-board storage would be 4GB, though hopefully expandable via microSD cards.
The Sony D2203 will also have GPS, NFC, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi of course. The prototype that was benchmarked was running Android 4.4.2 KitKat OS. We are still not clear about the intentions of the Sony by providing such a low specifications for its phablet. Perhaps a small price tag might make up for its shortcomings.
