The Sony Ericsson Xperia X2 is to feature upgraded imaging capabilities, a larger screen and a customised, faster operating system, it has been suggested.
Following leaked pictures of the successor to the Xperia X1 emerging online, a contributor to Mobile Review’s forums has intimated that the new mobile phone will be home to an 8.1 megapixel camera and will offer VGA video capture at 30fps.
The Xperia X2 will also be equipped with a 3.5-inch WVGA OLED screen, the poster claimed, as well as a faster processor and a specially developed version of Windows Mobile 6.5 which will reportedly make it as fast to use an iPhone.
Meanwhile, in a move aimed at gamers, the new mobile phone is to allow users to interact with their PS3 remotely from all over the globe.
Sony Ericsson has yet to disclose network carriers or a release date for the handset, but it is expected to appear on a range of carriers at some stage during the third quarter of the year.
Other new mobile phones due from Sony Ericsson this year include the much-touted Satio, which is to feature a 12 megapixel camera, as well as two new eco mobile phones, dubbed the C901 GreenHeart and the Naite.
