Just yesterday we reported that at Mobile Asia Expo Sony might announce a mid-range Android smartphone called Sony Xperia C. Today in Shanghai it not only announced the Xperia Z Ultra and Smartwatch 2, it also announced the dual SIM Xperia C smartphone which touts a 5 inch qHD 960×540 display.

This is actually the first smartphone Sony has developed that comes with a MediaTek chip, it is powered by a quadcore MT6589 processor coupled with 1GB of RAM, an 8 megapixel rear facing camera with LED flash and support for microSD cards. It runs Android Jelly Bean but the exact version is not known. Sony Xperia C will be released in selected markets soon, it will go on sale first in China with China Unicom. The smartphone, like Xperia Z Ultra, will be available in three colors, black, purple and white.┬áSony hasn’t said if these “selected markets” include the U.S. as well, so naturally there are no pricing and availability details to share about that right now.┬áThe official webpage of Sony Xperia C is now online, fair warning though, its in Chinese.
