Sony Xperia J deconstructed and approved by FCC in one day

Sony Xperia J breakdown
So that's what it looks like

Sony introduced three new Xperia phones at IFA on Wednesday, and at least one of them - the Sony Xperia J - has already been taken apart and poured over by the Federal Communications Commission.

Luckily for the internet, the Federal Communications Commission was kind enough to post the tear-down pictures online.

Apparently, Sony didn't request that the images be kept confidential, as is the norm for technology breakdowns.

It appears the Japanese company has nothing to hide.

The new Xperia trio

Sony's Xperia J was revealed at IFA alongside the Xperia T and the Xperia V.

The Xperia T is Sony's new flagship, with a 1280x720 4.6-inch display, 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm Krait chip, NFC, PlayStation certification, and a 13-megapixel camera.

The Xperia V sports similar specs, but with a smaller, 4.3-inch screen, 4G LTE connectivity, and high water resistance.

But the Xperia J is the baby brother of the trio, with the smaller screen (4 inches), 1GHz single-core processor, and 5-megapixel camera.

Will the Xperia J hit the US?

The Sony Xperia J may be the most affordable of the new Xperia phones, but that doesn't necessarily guarantee a U.S. release.

Even the quick FCC approval isn't a guarantee that the Xperia J will hit American shores, as Engadget points out.

And the tear-down photos - while neat - don't reveal anything we didn't already know about the Xperia J handset.

Here's hoping for more news soon - in the meantime, let's use these non-confidential images to somehow ascertain all of Sony's trade secrets. Just kidding.
