Despite launching new Android smartphones on an almost weekly basis, Sony Ericsson is dragging its heels in many respects, perhaps most notably in the processing arena. The ailing manufacturer has yet to officially announce a dual-core smartphone.
But – according to an Xperia Blog insider – that’s all set to change in March 2012, with the arrival of the Sony Ericsson Nozomi. Er, presumably it's the same phone as the previously leaked Xperia Duo.
The source notes that the specs are subject to change, but mentions a 4.3in display (1280 x 720), 1GB RAM, 32GB internal storage, a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, NFC support, and a 1750mAh battery.
Incidentally, that resolution would give the Sony Ericsson Nozomi a PPI of 342, pipping the iPhone 4’s Retina display.
It sounds impressive enough, but we’re already expecting quad-core monsters to start appearing before the end of the year. Too little too late from Sony Ericsson? Probablys.
With an estimated March 2012 arrival, we reckon Sony Ericsson will unveil the Nozomi at CES in January or MWC in February. Yup.
