Letting design take the lead
The Xperia SP was born out of a simple paper mockup and a strong vision of creating something truly unique. Our designers Jessie Zhao and Toshihide Umedan had a clear idea of crafting a smartphone where the display virtually floats in thin air. To be able to achieve this, we paired their design vision with our 60 years of Sony engineering experience. We created a transparent antenna and a body that was solid while retaining a floating feel. Then we focused on getting the right weight and shape – since balance and proportion is crucial for the overall user experience. Finally we choose the colours black, white and red, which complement the metal structure as well as the quality of each component.
“We started by sharing a paper mockup with the product developers and engineers. Most of them asked us “is this really possible to create?” Luckily, with a shared vision and decades of engineering expertise, we could realise our idea.”
– Jessie Zhao, Sony Mobile designer
“The metal frame structure was made using a co-molding technology, allowing us to create a unified, solid body.”
– Toshihide Umeda, Sony Mobile designer
