New Sony Ericsson Xperia model code named Pepper, gets blurry treatment on camera
The Sony Ericsson joint venture will soon be over, but the combo is still pulling models out of their hat for now. A new Sony Ericsson Xperia model code named Pepper appeared on the Xperia Blog with a model number of MT27i. Said to be the successor to the Sony Ericsson Xperia neo, this new model offers a 3.7 inch display with resolution of 480 x 854. Under the hood is a dual-core 1.2GHz processor, possibly the ST-Ericsson NoveThor U8500 chipset. The device will have a 5MP camera which captures video at 720p, and a front-facing camera. A 1320mAh battery is expected to be powering the device.

The Sony Ericsson Pepper will probably get to be displayed at CES and there is speculation that while it will be running on Android 2.3 at launch, it will shortly thereafter be updated to Ice Cream Sandwich. Also, with Sony removing its long time joint venture partner from the company's name after buying out Ericsson, there is a possibility that this phone could have just the Sony name on it when released. While no exact date has been set, it has been rumored that the Ericsson name will be removed from handsets produced after the middle of this year.

Can't wait for the new Sony Ericsson devices in CES. Perhaps they're not the best people who make the high end phones, but they are the best when it comes to Mid Range and Low End :)

Should have gone with a 8MP camera and a full 1080p recording. 5MP and 720p resolution for a mid range device is too 2011. I wont buy it.

Well, ST-Ericsson U8500 chipset supports video encoding in 1080p, but maybe there are some other limitations...

The Samsung Galaxy R with the 5MP camera is a better option then...

A 1320mAh battery powering this dual-core phone? I mean holy sh*t, its either EXTREMELY power efficient or its going to have sh*tty battery life.

It's supposed to be having a White Magic Display which consumes less power than the ones that are available now.

I also have my doubt in regards to the battery life of this one, my single core Arc with 1500mAh battery could only last for 7-8 heavy usage, makes me wonder how long this one would last on heavy usage.

If you read the article properly, you would notice that this phone has an St-Ericsson chipset which means its about 200% less power consuming that Qualcom.

i like combination of 3,7" + duo core + 480*854 pix
must be smooth & sharp display
but battery capacity is just for daily use with minimum game & browsing usage...
still worth for me
