The Sony Ericsson army of droids smartphones is about to welcome its most powerful soldier yet. Promo photos of the yet unofficial dual-core Sony Ericsson Xperia Duo just surfaced online so we are probably nearing a real announcement.
At this point there's not much we can tell you about the Xperia Duo specs sheet, but the source claims that the screen is larger than the one of the Arc and is probably measuring 4.5" in diagonal. There's no mention of the Bravia engine, but chances are that it will be on board.
The nature of the Sony Ericsson Xperia Duo dual-core CPU remains a mystery. Qualcomm is the most likely supplier as it has had a successful partnership with Sony Ericsson for quite some time now. Yet the Tegra 2 has been getting increasingly popular among smartphone manufacturers recently so there's an outside chance that Sony Ericsson will make a switch.
Now with promo materials (like the one photographed here) already being printed it's quite probable that the Swedish-Japanese joint venture will officially unveil the Xperia Duo smartphone in the very near future and then we will get all our questions answered. Here's hoping!

i hope this ph will come out in december!!1
Santa, If they build this phone with Honeycomb, I might wet my pants, haha.
As i have read Android Gingerbread or other lower versions of Android are not build for make full use of dual core efficiently, so i think SE might release it with Android Honeycomb for smartphones as it is meant for dual core processors!
