BREAKING: PlayStation Phone In-Depth Preview Answers Questions

This is a big one. Chinese website IT168 posted a lengthy, rich, and media filled PlayStation Phone preview. The article confirms many of the phone’s specs, and also dives into the software and gives us a good look at the OS.

IT168 is reporting that the PlayStation Phone is rockin’ an Adreno 205 GPU, and they are placing bets that the Qualcomm Snapdragon QSD8255 processor (1Ghz) is running the device. During benchmark tests, the PlayStation Phone reached an impressive 59.4 FPS on the Neocore benchmark app (which is quite an improvement since last time) and a Quadrant score of 1733. The device also has 512mb of ram and rom, a 1500mah battery, a 4-inch LCD display, a front-facing camera (unknown megapixel count), and a rear 5 megapixel camera with 720p HD video recording. The slide-out game controller hasn’t changed since its first appearance.

The PlayStation Phone is running Android 2.3 Gingerbread with a slick custom skin that is shown off in the videos below. There is a “PlayStation Pocket” app as well, which seems to be a renamed version of the “PlayStation” app we’ve seen before. Once again, there weren’t any games loaded onto the device. I encourage you to read through the preview (here is the Google-Translated-to-English version, because it is in Chinese) and checking out all of the pictures. A couple of the videos are embedded below.

This phone is certain ramping up to be a game changer (no pun intended) for Android’s market for gaming, and who knows what additions and improvements might come to the device before launch. Hopefully we won’t have to wait too much longer to get this device in our hands!
