Sony Ericsson prepping 13MP LT28at for CES

Sony Ericsson prepping 13MP LT28at for CESBluetooth Special Interest Group – or Bluetooth SIG, if you prefer – has details of an upcoming Sony Ericsson smartphone, and it sounds pretty impressive. Well, from what little detail is available.

The Bluetooth SIG description lists the Sony Ericsson LT28at as a “tablet capacity touch phone” and reckons it takes “Xperia into super phone territory”.

Included on the Sony Ericsson LT28at (presumably it’ll have a funky codename at launch) are a 4.55in 720p display and an eye-melting 13MP camera. Cripes.

It’s expected that the Sony Ericsson LT28at will boast a dual-core processor. If it launches at CES in Vegas next month, that’d make it the manufacturer’s first dual-core smartphone.

The Sony Ericsson LT28at boasts LTE connectivity and is reportedly bound for AT&T in the US of A. Chances of seeing it over here? Don’t hold your breath. Indeed, Bluetooth SIG notes the “Geographic Availability” as North America. Bah.

As for that 13MP of camera goodness, you can see what you’re missing (literally) with a series of shots taken by the Sony Ericsson LT28at posted on SlashGear. Impressive stuff.

Won't that be the Sony LT28i??? Adios Ericsson, and all?

Depends on its release date, the Ericsson part of the name isn't being dropped until mid-2012, apparently. Though I did see a leaked picture the other day of a pure Sony device, it looked distinctly mid-range though.

13 MP? So what's that, over 4000x3000? Not only will that fill up your microSD card quicker, but how many consumers have a display/ printing facilities to make use of that resolution? Give me an 8 MP camera with an excellent sensor over a more expensive 13 MP camera any day.

iPhone 4S quality pictures (which are rarely ever printed) are ample for a device with no optical zoom, aka every phone on the market.

I still have a couple of reservations about the iPhone 4S's camera quality. Low-light photos in particular will look good on the iPhone's screen, but as soon as you put it on a computer and get the photo closer to its native resolution, it soon becomes apparent the photos have a fair bit of noise.

Not saying it's bad or anything, but there's still a lot of room for improvement down at the 8 MP mark.

Matt, there are phones with optical zoom ;) Looooong before the iPhone and Android.

matt101101 / MOD  Dec. 23, 2011 at 19:31

But none of them were any good. They're also no longer on the market. A 13mp camera is pointless without optical zoom as it'd be limited to mid-range pictures...

I retract my earlier comments, this is an Android phone with a 14mp camera and 3x optical zoom, available for £200ish on eBay :).
