Here Are PlayStation Phone Images and Specs!

I don’t give a fuck about the PlayStation phone, and for that reason I haven’t covered it here. Until tonight. According to Kotaku, the Chinese website IT168 got its grubby paws “on a version of the phone (which it carefully points out may not be the final, production model) and put it through its paces, detailing not just the device’s hardware specs but some other interesting tidbits as well.”

Interested in the specs, as well as some images of the phone? Hit the jump, you slags.


First, the specs (at least as they stand on the model reviewed): it’s got a 1GHz Snapdragon QSD8255 processor and Qualcomm Adreno 205 GPU, giving the handheld a benchmark frames-per-second count of just under 60. It has 512MB RAM, 512MB ROM and slots of a microSD card, SIM card and micro USB cable.


The phone’s screen is capable of a 854 x 480 resolution on its 4-inch screen, and there’s a 5 megapixel camera.

Interestingly, on the phone’s screen, it appears games are launched via the “PlayStation Pocket” application. Before it’s selected, the phone is running in “phone” mode, but once you hit the PlayStation Pocket app the display changes to Sony’s trademark “XMB”, making it look much more like the user interface of a regular PSP.

There you go. More official information than you can throw a stick at. Before any official information has been released. I’d say take this shit with a grain of salt, but it all feels pretty fucking legit to me.
