Back in January, rumours of the Sony XPERIA Pepper (MT27i) surfaced on the internet. it was expected to be unveiled at Mobile World Congress last February, but it seems the Japanese firm had other plans. Now, an image and specs have recently leaked on the internet.
According to Pocketnow, the benchmark database reveals a 1 GHz processor. It sports a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera and a 3.7 inch display with a resolution of 480 x 854 pixels. Since Sony Smart Tags are seen with the smartphone, it looks like the phone will sport NFC (Near Field Communication), just like then XPERIA S. It will run Android. The Pepper is the successor of the XPERIA Neo V.
Compared to the Neo V, it looks much better. The Pepper looks like the XPERIA U with its simple rectangular design, unlike the Neo V’s unattractive rounded top and bottom. The difference between the XPERIA Pepper, the XPERIA U, and the XPERIA S in terms of looks is the transparent strip found on the bottom of the U and S.
