Sony Ericsson codenamed beibei spotted

Sony Ericsson codenamed beibei spotted - read the full textReal images of the would-be unannounced Sony Ericsson smartphone codenamed "beibei" have been spotted online. The Chinese website has obviously got their hands on the device. No details are known about the device except for the OS it runs on. It's supposed to be the latest...

UIQ 3.3. About time. But the screen looks rather small. Looks 2.0-2.2" which is smaller than the 2.4" of the G700/900. Is this really touchscreen? Confirmed? What screenshots on the UI doesn't really show a touchscreen based interface. Looks more like the Moto Z10 type of UIQ 3.3. Event he customary stylus across screen image for stylus based touchscreen phones are not shown.

I like this phone but what you can see on the leaked photos, it has no video call camera on the front.

WLAN, GPS, HSDPA, and UIQ 3.3 were the factors that will separate "BeiBei" from the rest of the G-series. as said in the recent rumors the phone helds a 3.2mp camera with AF.

I'm sure there must be a Chinese reader who can translate what's on the images. Let me call my fwens :)

The the design-team some slack, please. Each brand strive for variety without throwing out their baby (brand-recognition, brand-uniqueness) in that process. If anything: both SE and Nokia dare to test design-boundaries much more the for example Samsung. Im sure the latter makes good mobiles, but in terms of design/colour, its conventional business-style grey-black-silver ones, over and over again.

Anyone from china know what "Beibei" stands for? just curious. This phone looks quite wide and pretty slim. I like candybar too. Lets just hope the interfece is VERY good to make this a winner

This may look almost the same as other SE phones but the way you use it is definity different. Look at the keys, look where the scroll is.

As expected. The true big wig of the G series. Design has the G700 keys but looks G900. Screen size seems unchanged. Looks like yet another SE phone. A G700/900 with the same hardware only UIQ 3.3 instead of UIQ 3.0. Worth it? Probably. But SE being nice? Definitely no. Too bad this was leaked before G700/900 came out. Sure to lower the 700/900 demand.

Is it me, or does it look like it's based on the W890 hardware?

I am pro symbian and have a w960i. i think to move forward all lag between pressing screen and action being carried out needs to be removed so the interface is more flowing to use especially when opening messages.

UIQ 3.3: Hmmm... I'm pro-Symbian. After the iPhone, the challenge of suiting-up phones with snappy interface just got steeper. I still am pro-Symbian. With UIQ 3.3, I am hoping for a more user-friendly and more interesting interface while packing in the usual strengths of the UIQ OS. The screenshots of the interface are reminiscent of the opera browser 8.x color scheme.

I like the Chinese. with the largest population in the world, this just explains the odds why they get the first info regarding these things. A Go for industrial espionage! lol.
