New images of the rumored Sony Ericsson XPERIA Nozomi, said to be the Arc HD, has been leaked again on the internet. However, these pictures look more real compared to past blurry shots.
The image comes to us courtesy of GSMArena. The pictures suggest the handset will sport a 4.3 inch touchscreen with a HD resolution of 1,280 x 720 pixels. Under the hood will be a 1.5 GHz dual-core Scorpion processor coupled with 1 GB or RAM. Other specs include an HDMI port, 16 to 32 GB of internal storage, and a whopping 12 megapixel camera capable of full HD recording. The phone is also said to sport a non-removable battery and a MicroSIM, which is the same way the Motorola Razr, iPhone 4S, and Nokia Lumia 800 are designed.
The smartphone does offer impressive hardware, but software is a bit disappointing. It is said to ship running Gingerbread 2.3.5, instead of Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich), which runs on the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. The XPERIA Nozomi, possibly the Arc HD, is expected to be officially unveiled at CES (Consumer Electronics Show) in January.
Compared to past Sony Ericsson designs, the Nozomi does sport a more high-end look and more impressive specs. We’re also eager to find out how the rumored handset competes against today’s popular smartphones and other new releases.
Eager to know more about the Sony Ericsson XPERIA Nozomi? We’ll keep you posted once we know more.
The Japanese-Swedish phone manufacturer Sony Ericsson was under fire for failing to launch phones running on the most updated Android software from 2009 to 2010. It was also scrutinized for not being able to roll out updates as fast as the competition. This will no longer be the case.
Apparently, SE has learned its lesson. On its Facebook page, the company has confirmed that it plans to roll out Android version 4.0 to its entire roster of smartphones released in 2011.
Although you could wait quite some time before Ice Cream sandwich rolls out to your XPERIA Neo, Arc, or Play, you are sure to get the latest version of Android on your Sony Ericsson smartphone. The update is expected to roll out sometime in 2012.
Other Android manufacturers have confirmed that the ICS update will be issued to a number of their smartphones. Samsung has confirmed that the Galaxy S2 will be getting the update. HTC has also announced that it is closely looking Android 4.0 and is committed to bringing the update to its smartphones.
Currently, Sony Ericsson handsets have failed to make an impact on the market just like HTC and Samsung. However, with Ice Cream Sandwich on board, we’re hoping the company can make a complete turnaround with their luck with Android.
Vodafone has just confirmed that the Sony Ericsson would be added to their list of products. The news was confirmed on the network operator’s website, which announced that the Gingerbread-powered smartphone would be “coming soon”. Despite the announcement, it is still unknown when the smartphone will be available, but we’re guessing that it won’t be a long wait.
Aside from the original black version, the Sony Ericsson XPERIA Ray will also be available in a gold version. Hope it doesn’t look tacky though.
If you like the slim dimensions of the XPERIA Arc, you’re going to love the Ray. Compared to the Arc’s width of 63 mm, the Ray is a mere 53 mm wide. Due to its spender profile, it only comes with a 3.3 inch touch screen. Despite this, SE managed to pack in a 1 GHz single-core processor under the hood.
Other features include an 8.1 MP camera, powered the Exmor R CMOS sensor, which will allow you to capture high-quality images and record high-definition videos in even the poorest lighting conditions.
Are you looking for a slender Gingerbread-powered smartphone that does not fall short on processing power and allows you to enjoy high-quality images and videos? Does the Sony Ericsson XPERIA Ray fit the bill? Let us know what you think.
