The Sony Xperia J smartphone is now up for pre-orders with online retailer Flipkart listed at a price of Rs. 16,490.

The device, which previewed a week ahead of its launch, was officially announced alongside the Xperia V and Xperia T smartphones this year at the IFA trade fair in Berlin held in August.

On the inside, the device packs in a 1 GHz Qualcomm MSM7227A processor with 512MB RAM, 4GB internal storage and 32GB of expandable memory with microSD. It comes with a 1,750 mAh battery. The connectivity features include Wi-Fi, 3G, Bluetooth, DLNA and A-GPS.
