Sony Ericsson Anzu Details Leaked, To Be Called Bravia Phone?

The first picture of what seems to be the successor to the Sony Ericsson Xperial X10 has been leaked online, displacing the latter as the company's top of the range smartphone, possibly being called a Bravia Phone.

The XperiaX10 blog was sent a photo of the beast which carries the codename Anzu and will apparently run Android OS 2.3, AKA Gingerbread. Details are still scant and the anonymous tipster confirmed that the phone will have a 4.3-inch capacitive display and will be "very, very slim" (check the pictures here)

The phone - which is expected to be launched in the first quarter of 2011 - appears to have a front facing camera, a rear one that can record at full HD (yep, apparently) and a thinner than average frame plus a full size HDMI port.

As mentioned yesterday, we've noticed that the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 which was launched one year ago, had been heavily discounted online with monthly contract prices falling to less than £20.

We also tracked down the SIM Free version of the phone which now costs as little as £258 from Scan, half the price it was less than one year ago (ed : it is currently out of stock).

An interesting titbit; Anzu is likely to coincide with the soon to be released Sony Ericsson Playstation Phone when it goes on sale next year..
