The rumoured successor to the Sony Ericsson (SE) Vivaz 2 will be dubbed the Xperia Neo, reports suggest, as the phone maker gears up to unveil its latest cameraphone challenger at this year’s Mobile World Congress (MWC).
A loose-lipped source “close to the manufacturer” cited by Tech Radar has confirmed rumours that the handset will pack an 8.1-megapixel snapper – putting it in on a par with the Vivaz.
However, this time out SE has augmented its handset’s imaging credentials with the addition of the same EXMOR sensor featured in the forthcoming SE Xperia Arc and an LED flash.
And adding to its camera phone droolworthy-ness is the inclusion of Bravia display with 854x480 resolution, which ought to make for a rather lovely mobile video experience. It'll also pack Android 2.3, AKA Gingerbread, out of the box, overlaid with SE’s TimeScape custom skin.
Unofficial additional specs circulating on the internets, meanwhile, include a secondary front-facing snapper for video calling, microSD and USB support and the usual array of connectivity options.
