Last week we brought you some exclusive pictures of what is believed to be Sony Ericsson’s next Android flagship, codenamed ANZU. We have not heard any additional information from our tipster, but since then, a raft of rumours have hit the web.
Respected blogger Elder Murtazin from Mobile-Review has said that a preview on the ANZU is coming very soon with more detail forthcoming. He also has said that the Xperia flagship will cost around the €650 mark that would make it one of the most expensive smartphones in the market when it is released in March.
Some additional information has been revealed by Forum Fanklub member, Lollylost100, with what he says are the finalised specifications of the ANZU. This includes a MSM7230 Snapdragon chipset (using the Adreno 205 GPU), a 4.2-inch (854 x 480) pixel multi-touch display, HDMI, Android Gingerbread and a 1500mAh battery.
Imaging will be taken care of with an 8.1MP camera with Exmor R sensor and 720p HD video recording (at 30fps). As we saw in the earlier pictures, the phone will also be very thin, measuring 10.9mm at its thickest point. Obviously all of this is just rumours for now, but the spec-sheet certainly seems believable. Hopefully, SE will release some official information shortly.
