Okay, so we've been seeing this device rumored for quite some time now. And its almost popped up every week since then. Whatever you wanna call it: the Xperia Play, the PlayStation Phone, the PSP Phone -- the point is, it's real, people. Only this time, Chinese website IT168 has spent a good amount of time with Sony's secret device (or not so secret). So good in fact, they decided to record gameplay footage, run benchmark tests, and even take side-by-side shots of the unit next to the PSP Go.

The device is said to be powered by a 1GHz Snapdragon QSD8255 processor, a Qualcomm Adreno 205 GPU, 512MB of RAM, and 512MB of ROM. The Chinese site also posted a shot of Necore running at a solid and nice 59.1fps. Not bad at all, considering the first video we saw it chugging along. The Quadrant number was also quite high at 1,733. It was also noted that all of this was running on Gingerbread, Android 2.3.

IT168 also revealed that the sleek device carried a 854 x 480 screen resolution sitting on top of a 4-inch LCD display. The Sony branded phone has a 1,500mAh battery, a 5 mega-pixel camera with LED flash, a microSD slot, SIM card slot, and a noise cancellation mic on the back.

Why didn't we see it at the Sony press conference on Wednesday? Does Sony have something in store for us, say, a seperate event? What do guys think? For all the videos and screens, hit the source link. [IT168 via Engadget]
