Dude, if you wanna see new phone with only SONY brand name, you may need to wait until at least in mid-June or July. Then you will also see new technologies that SONY would provide on their new phone models...
Anonymous, 08 Jan 20125MP camera is stupid market segmentation. Many people want the best specs, but not in HUGE devices.well If you don't like huge device then you might like to got for Xperia Ray , Its small , fast and quite easy and will also get !CS update..
in the back of phone is written prototype. so probably we wont see this one. :(
i hope they release a number of phones with multiple design.
its really beautiful :)
nice. but the improvement is not impressived....
If it is 8MP it will be nice
Like carrying your phone with some sort of charging dock permanently connected to it. :-)
Sorry, it's ugly. I'd rather they retain the xperia arc/arc s than this. Even the xperia neo/neo v looks better than this. Looks like everyone else's basic design, then had a "battery pack" popped-in underneath as an afterthought.
Not everyone wants a huge phone. It's getting ridiculous that mid-sized phones are mid-range phones. How about a high end mid-sized (3.5-3.7 inch)?
I've been waiting for the Neo successor for better internal memory and CPU but don't want the 5mp camera.
Well sharp corners makes sense if the screen goes out to all four corners, otherwise it is a stupid idea by a designer that never used a phone in real life!
It both make the phone more vulnerable on drops than rounded corners, and also makes it less pocket-friendly.
But VISUALLY I like that sort of retro tribute to the 1970-B&O design. It is just very impractical outside a design studio...
ST-Ericssons's SoCs come with ARM's Mali-400 GPUs .
Adreno 220 (and all Adreno GPUs for that matter....) are Qualcomm's solutions that are not licensed to third party manufacturers....
zide, 08 Jan 2012Haven't those companies split? Why are still some "Sony Ericsson" phones being announced?You beat me to it :-)
is this a mid-range phone?
at least they changed those frustrating 3 buttons with touch buttons.

Anonymous, 08 Jan 20125MP camera is stupid market segmentation. Many people want the best specs, but not in HUGE devices.Higher MP (mega pixels) doesn't make the camera take better pictures.
Seriously people are getting dumber and dumber.
RVM, 08 Jan 2012Well ST-Ericsson U8500 chipset should include Mali 400 GPU and should easily be able to encode... moreOf course it use ARM Mali... Adreno is a trademark owned by Qualcomm and GSMArena has to know that well, not just copy paste.
Well, at least they corected the mistake with the name of ST-Ericsson SoC.
RVM 100% true so this information is only rumored and unchecked because if it was checked the autor of this rumor would see the misleading part in gpu Mali 400 is the correct type of gpu for ST-Ericsson Nova Thor and max.recording resolution of video that is 1080p 30 fps.
