Sony ST25i aka Xperia U photos emerge ahead of MWC 2012
In the run up to Mobile World Congress, the phone world continues to leak more than a dodgy plumbing job. The above photo reportedly shows the soon-to-be-announced Sony Xperia U, formerly known as the Kumquat and ST 25i. Read on for more details on the dinky Sony phone. Quick! before its name changes once more…
Specs on Sony’s latest phone have been rather elusive, but we can clearly see thanks to a leaked photo, that the Sony Xperia U will be another addition to Sony’s band of small handsets. Sony is of course no stranger to midget handsets, having previously launched the Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini, and Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini Pro.
The latest word on specs reports a a 3.5-inch display, dual-core 1GHz processor (previously thought to be 1.5GHz), 512MB RAM and a 5-megapixel rear camera with full 1080p HD recording talents. As earlier photos revealed, the Sony Xperia U sports an unusual looking white bar towards the bottom, said to house the handsets aerial. We’re hoping it won’t cause the annoying call-dropping that took the shine of Apple’s iPhone 4.
Also note the Sony Ericsson branding – soon to be replaced by pure Sony branding following the company’s purchase of Ericsson to manufacture phones under the Sony label.
The Sony Xperia U is reportedly in line for a Mobile World Congress 2012 unveiling, where we’ll know a lot more about Sony’s intentions for its latest mini mobile. Till then, we’ll just have to sit tight for more info. MWC 2012 can’t come soon enough.
