Live snaps of what’s purported to be Sony Ericsson’s upcoming all-singing, all-dancing kit, the Nozomi LT26i, have been sighted online, giving smartfans the first peek at what might be the phone-maker’s debut HD dual core effort.
The photos reveal an all-white smartie that doesn’t look a mile off the ultra-slim dimensions of the Xperia Arc range, except it appears to be considerably flatter and possibly even thinner.
The source claims the handset is powered by a 1.5GHz dual core processor, which, if it pans out, would make it the first of its kind from SE’s stable. The real highlight of the show, though, is the fact the handset offers a native 1280 x 720 resolution, as in 720p HD.
This comes with a positively eye-popping 320dpi pixel density, which based on the assumption the screen is 4.3 inches, works out to a 341.54ppi (pixels per inch), higher than that of the iPhone 4S’s retina display at 329.64ppi.
Also on board are two front and rear facing cameras. The resolutions for these are as yet unknown but we expect at least an eight-pixel number in the back just like the Arcs.
Whether this handset is the same as the recently rumoured Xperia Arc HD or a completely new model remains a mystery, as does a date for its official announcement. However, with year almost at an end, it’s likely to be unveiled early next year at the Mobile World World Congress.
Rest assured, you’ll among the first to know as soon as we do.
