Sony Ericsson Nozomi with an HD screen resurfaces, similar SE Aoba might be also coming along
Rumors about a mysterious device by Sony Ericsson, the Nozomi, first surfaced on the nets in late summer and the device was later said to come with a 4.3-inch screen with a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels. It was also said to pack impressive hardware muscle with a dual-core 1.5GHz processor, while possibly running Android Ice Cream Sandwich. 

The rumor resurfaces once again now, but this time the device has appeared in the database of Android benchmarking app Nenamark. Actually, it was not the only secret Sony Ericsson handset to show up there - a handset codenamed Sony Ericsson Aoba (Aoba is the name of a volcano in Japan) was also listed there. Both devices appear as coming with a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels, but we’re still puzzled whether these are two separate phones or if it’s a single phone under different codenames.

The reason for our doubts are the identical technical details of the SE Nozomi and SE Aoba:
  • 1.5 GHz Qualcomm CPU,
  • Adreno 220 GPU,
  • 1280×720 display resolution,
  • Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread.

There are no official details about the Sony Ericsson Nozomi release date, and we have even less information about the Aoba, but they definitely look on par with the HD craze and technologically in general.
