Sony Ericsson’s PlayStation Phone – aka the XPERIA Play – has been previewed in a Chinese forum, with the handset’s specifications confirmed along the way. According to IT168, the PlayStation Phone runs Qualcomm’s 1GHz Snapdragon QSD8255 paired with the Adreno 205 GPU; there’s a 4-inch display running at 854 x 480, a 5-megapixel camera with LED flash, 512MB of RAM/ROM and a microSD card slot.

There’s also microUSB and dual microphones for noise cancellation, while the battery is a 1,500mAh unit. An app called PlayStation Pocket is loaded, which seems to be the gaming download store.

  1. The figure I’d be most interested in is battery life. 1500mAh sounds a little weedy if you plan to use the phone as a serious gaming unit as well as a phone – I know that my HTC Desire has limited life if I start playing 3D games a lot.

  2. No dual core NO care. Really sony . You are coming late to the game and you bring this with a single core. I hope they rethink this before it is released . Am a ps3 fan and this really disappointed me in every way.

  3. TO jay, no dual core? so what, whats important for a gaming console is the quality games..Look at Wii and NDS especially for example, they dont have dual core, but they do sold well.

  4. Verizon’s version of this phone doesnt have playstation pocket so right now verizion can go fuck it’s self
