New photo of the Sony Ericsson Xperia duo emerges
Another photo of the Sony Ericsson Xperia duo, coming from some kind of a promotional material, has surfaced over the weekend. As usual Sony Ericsson is not too worried about leaked handsets, and that's a character trait we certainly appreciate.

People are expecting this to be the company's first dual-core handset, and the seemingly edge-to-edge display on the sides will come as an added bonus, plus some reshuffling in the Sony Ericsson Android UI overlay. If it is indeed dual-core, we can expect Sony Ericsson to have continued its partnership with Qualcomm, which supplied the 1GHz single core chips for the Android handsets it has outed so far this year. 

Thus performance should be on par with HTC's dual-core handsets, like the HTC Sensation, or the HTC EVO 3D. Not the best in benchmarks, but a solid delivery overall, and far more than what you'd get with a single core - see our "My dual-core is better than your single core" article for an overview.

The new photo is displaying the Sony Ericsson Xperia duo next to an Xperia arc, and now we can confirm that the screen is definitely bigger, it might even be 4.5", considering the 4.2" display on the Xperia arc. This doesn't necessarily mean a much bigger footprint for the phone, given the edge-to-edge display, but the Xperia duo does seem slightly taller and wider than the Xperia arc. 

Rumors around the Internets peg this phone for Q4 release, and also that it will have an 8MP camera with Full HD 1080p video capabilities, supposedly the same Exmor R sensor of Sony, but it's all in the realm of speculation so far. Sony Ericsson is slated for an announcement at an expo in Singapore on Wednesday, which might include some upcoming handsets, hopefully the Xperia duo too.

Thanks again, Philip!

The edge to edge display looks great!! It's the way all device screens should look like, especially the tablets!

Now give it 16.4 megapixel camera (or 12 megapixels with same quality as Nokia N8) and Full HD video recording with stereo sound... I'm waiting for a phone with an even better camera than my Nokia N8 for 6 months now... Hope this is it! Greets
