Sony Ericsson LT28at for AT&T's LTE pipeline leaks with 13MP camera

Sony Ericsson LT28at for AT&T's LTE pipeline leaks with 13MP camera
Update: Pictures allegedly taken with the 13MP camera on the Sony Ericsson LT28a were obtained by Slash Gear. You can view them below with the understanding that this device will apparently raise the bar in the Android arena next year.

A leaked Bluetooth End Product List shows that Sony Ericsson has a high-end Xperia branded handset in mind for AT&T. Thus far the phone is called the Sony Ericsson LT28at although that is sure to change by the time the phone launches sometime in 2012. It is expected to come to market with a 4.55 Reality display featuring 720p resolution. The Sony Ericsson LT28at will offer LTE connectivity and a pair of cameras. The one on back will have 13MP and an LED flash, while the front facing shooter comes in at 720p. The device will supposedly have a 1.5GHz dual-core processor under the hood.

The Xperia Blog had originally considered the LT28at to be the U.S. version of the Sony Ericsson Nozomi until the specs on the camera and the display eliminated that possibility. We look forward to seeing this beast perhaps as soon as next month at the 2012 CES.

x10 is one of the first high end android phones and as such is plagued with teething problems. but all of the 2011 xperia lineup is just great. xparia arc s is arguably the best single core phone on the market

nope, the best single core device goes to the samsung galaxy 1... that phone was...and still is epic. my vibrant running bionix is my back up phone after my SGS2 international I have tried the Arc, not arc s... but it was overclocked, so i don't really see a difference, and while the phone was nice, i prefer the SGS. but that's just me of course

And is it getting an ICS update? No. You sir, just got your point disapproved by a SEX Arc user.

LOL, like that actually means something. If ICS was a revolutionary game changer, I'd agree. However, it's not, it's just a new OS build. Rehash this discussion when Jellybean sees the light of day. Arc S takes the OG SGSI by a margin, but SGSII buries the Arc S, now and later, as well.

dual-core killed it for me. Sony please bring quad monsters into the game!

The chance that the phone I will upgrade to and the end of next year could have at least a 12MP shooter (but I care more about the lens than pixels), 2 ghz dual or quad core processor, 720p or 1080p screen, bluetooth 4.0, NFC (in some form), LTE Advanced (maybe), and more. Next year will be fun.

I really don't think you'll notice a difference between 720p and 1080p on a phone screen.... Unless it's 7" or more lol

24. sumdude

I think you will see a difference between them 720p is awesome but 1080p should bring depth to screens, giving it a natural 3D effect. 720p is amazing but the clarity doesn't really surpass crystal clear 2D. Example being that, if this wasn't the case, the photos above taken w/ that SE device would look like the IP 4s, clearly, it's an apple(Sony) to an unripened orange.

why? why AT&T? the most hated carrier in the US.. lol

Got no hate for them but I'm jealous that they have several gems in their phone lineup. Whereas, #1, had nothing to brag about until recently. I'd love for the people who select AT&Ts roster to swap w/ Big Reds. Then we wouldn't get a top tier phone 3-6 months after everybody else.

I have at&t. They dont have too many high end phonea like verizon or sprint does. Ill be looking forward to this phone when ever it launch.

Here we go again people crying about it being only dual core. It is not about the number of core but how will it is optimized for the software.

@ngo2dd - does it mean that if the multi-core processor is not yet optimized for the software means that its useless? having a multi-core processor also means power savings right? so what are you whining about?

13. InspectorGadget80 unregistered

If this true I'll be getting a Sony if Motorola gets ban before my upgrade. Always like Sony phones but i dislike their late updates

Only the 2010 Lineup had late updates lol. Sony Ericsson was actually the first brand here at ME to update their devices to 2.3.3 and 2.3.4, they're also updating their devices to ICS in Q1 2012, and that's early if you ask me.

I've always been a big fan of Sony Ericsson phones, had quite a few in the past, but the last phone I had from them (Xperia X10) was really lack luster. The camera was 8mp but the lag while trying to take any video or pictures was awful. That's when I switched to the Inspire and was wowed by the silky smoothness. I hope they are getting back in the game to compete with all the other nice phone cameras.

Actually the amount of cores affects the speed and the battery life as well... Single core processors are most likely better in terms of battery life but not as fast as the dual core processors ... The iPhone 4s is an example... But I think quad core should be almost the same as dual core as NVIDIA made an extra companion core to enhance the battery life and uses all its other four cores when it's running heavy apps... Therefore quad-core should be the best thing out there ( as of the specs ) for both speed and battery life in the mobile industry :D

Yay, another phone to compare to the iphone.
