A few days after a press photo of the Sony Ericsson next generation Nozomi smartphone leaked into the wild, new live images with the device have been spotted.
The folks over at GSMArena received several live photos with the allegedly Sony Ericsson Android flagship smartphone, the Xperia arc HD or Nozomi.
The phone does not follow the same design line of the Sony Ericsson Xperia arc, instead it features a rectangular candybar form factor. The Nozomi features rounded corners, while the back cover is a bit curved to give the phone a more stylish look.
Although Sony Ericsson has yet to make any official announcements on the phone’s specs sheet, rumor has it that this will be the company’s new Android flagship smartphone.
In this regard, the Nozomi (Xperia arc HD) is equipped with a dual core Qualcomm Scorpion processor clocked at 1.5 GHz, which is complemented by an Adreno 220 graphics processing unit.
According to the folks over at GSMArena, the smartphone lacks a microSD card slot for memory expansion, but it packs 1GB of RAM and 16GB or 32GB of internal memory, depending on the version.
It also comes with a stunning 4.3-inch LCD capacitive touchscreen display with support for HD (1280 x 720 pixels) resolution and 16 million colors. On the back, the Xperia arc HD features a beastly 12-megapixel camera with LED flash and full HD (1080p) video recording capabilities.
There’s also a secondary front-facing camera for video-calls and HDMI port for sharing multimedia content. Sony Ericsson Xperia arc HD only supports microSIM, and it might come with a non-removable battery.
Software-wise, the phone is certain to be delivered with Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread, but it will receive the Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade soon after.
No word on the phone’s release date, but rumor has it that the Xperia arc HD might be announced in early 2012 at CES. More live photos with the Sony Ericsson Nozomi can be found at GSMArena.
