Sony Announces Xperia Miro with Deep Facebook Integration

Sony-Xperia-MiroEarlier today, we wrote about the new Sony Tipo. However, that is not the only new Android smartphone that Sony has announced recently. Sony’s Facebook page is teasing another new Xperia handset. This one is called the Xperia Miro. On top of this, Sony will be holding its own event in Singapore on June 20 to announce several new Xperia smartphones.

The Miro appears to be a mid-range device targeted at Facebook aficionados. Besides featuring deep Facebook integration, it will be capable of performing a few novelty tricks like using illumination to notify about Facebook messages and social updates. Sony hasn’t divulged anything about the processor, but it’s a safe bet to assume that it will be a dual core device. The Miro will feature a 3.5’’ screen, 5 megapixel rear cam, front cam of unknown resolution, DLNA, and a large battery. It will be launching with Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0) on-board.

Xperia Miro has the potential to be quite the draw among the youth (especially the ladies), if priced sensibly. However, we will probably have to wait at least a week to know more, including its launch date and price.
