Nyphon To Be The First Xperia Phone By Sony
After we told you about some new leaked pictures of the yet to be announced Nozomi smartphone, believed to be officially known as the Xperia Arc HD. The rumour mill has now focused its attention onto a new unknown phone which appears to be the first Sony branded handset since Sony bought the 50% stake owned by Ericsson, known currently by its codename – Nyphon.
If the current rumours are to be believed, the Nyphon could officially be known as the LT22, under the Xperia range. Along with the pictures above, there are also some unofficial specs which suggest that the Nyphon may feature a 1GHz dual-core U8500 chipset (made by ST-Ericsson), along with a 4-inch qHD display. It’s also thought that it may feature a 8MP camera with Sony’s Exmor R sensor, along with 1GB of RAM and 16GB of storage.
Like the Nozomi, rumour suggests that the Nyphon will be shipped with Android Gingerbread, although you’ll be able to update it to ICS.
The spec suggests that the Nyphon is not going to be a flagship device, unlike the Nozomi; however if the rumoured specs do turn out to be correct, I’m still guessing it will still be a popular choice amongst smartphone users.
