More Details Of Sony Ericsson Nozomi Android Smartphone Emerge

The Sony Ericsson Nozomi superphone has one of the most exciting feature lists around and more details have been leaked online courtesy of Chinese website IT168.com.

The site says that the smartphone - which is set to be launched in March 2012, weeks after the Mobile World Congress - will come with a 12-megapixel camera with Exmor R technology as well as Android Ice Cream Sandwich.

The latter is almost a certainty given that the next generation Android operating system is expected to be launched before the end of the year.

Other specifications of the handset include a dual core SoC clocked at 1.5GHz (possibly a Qualcomm Snapdragon), 1GB RAM, a 4.3-inch HD ready display (1280x800 pixels), a 1750mAh battery, 32GB onboard storage, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 (hopefully), a microSD card slot and roughly the same form factor as the Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc.

The Nozomi will not be the first phone with an HD ready screen; Samsung launched the Galaxy Note last week and this 5.3-inch monster came with a 1280x800 pixel capacitive screen and a dual core SoC clocked at 1.4GHz. Fortunately for the Nozomi, it won't be out until the beginning of next year.
