The line of camera-centric devices with the Cyber-shot branding has been left aside in favor of Xperia's for some time now. And many Sony Ericsson fans may disagree with this policy. Well, this may all change as a blurry photo of an unknown Cyber-shot Android device has popped-up and poured oil on an old flame.
UPDATE 17 May: It seems Esato user echo.shane, the original author of the blurry pic, has come up apologizing that he's misleadingly posted this concept (or rather a "fake leak", if you ask us). It was supposedly intended for the conceptual section of the Esato forums and posted in the Upcoming devices section by mistake.
The photo is truly horrid but focusing on it, we were able to spot the standard Android Home/menu/back buttons styled as on the Xperia mini and just above them the Cyber-shot logo. Sadly the photo doesn’t come with any specs, whatsoever. It’s a touchscreen smartphone, it looks thin and probably boasts at least a 3.7” diagonal screen.
Many would argue that the Cyber-shot lineup was one of the best in the cameraphone realm.
Still, fans could be in for a treat, as this one might just be a top dog Android cameraphone. Perhaps soon Sony Ericsson could introduce dual-core processing to its droid lineup too. Well, here's hoping.
