New images of the Vivaz successor the Xperia Neo have surfaced online, as Sony Ericsson (SE) gears up to lift the lid on its 2011 handset line-up at the Mobile World Congress (MWC).
The handset, which was initially tagged the Vivaz 2, teams high-end cameraphone credentials with Android appeal and is expected to be officially unveiled on February 13th at an SE press event the eve of the tech expo.
Right now, its spec sheet remains unconfirmed. But previous leaks suggest the handset will run Android 2.3, AKA Gingerbread, out of the box, overlaid with SE’s Timescape custom skin and will offer an 8.1-megapixel camera, with LED flash and EXMOR sensor.
Other mooted features include a four-inch Bravia touchscreen with resolution of 854x480, HD video recording in 720p and a secondary front-facing snapper for FaceTime-esque video calling. A 1GHz Qualcomm processor is also expected to be included to keep everything ticking over real nice, like.
SE’s industry showcase at the MWC also includes the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play, which you may know as the PlayStation phone, and its flagship Android phone for this year, the Xperia Arc.
