Sony Ericsson Xperia duo leaks, might be the company's first dual-core handset
Somewhere from within the land of the Great Wall, a picture leaked that is reportedly of an upcoming Sony Ericsson duo, which, as the name suggests, might be the company's first dual-core handset. The "Duo" moniker has also been bandied around for an upcoming successor to the Xperia mini pro, but last it leaked as the Mini Pro 2 in April.

If this image is real, the phone actually looks pretty good, with an almost edge-to-edge display on the sides, which will possibly make it larger than the 4.2" screen on the Sony Ericsson Xperia arc

We also have the navigational Android buttons in the form of a thin chromed line, which is a trademark for the Xperia family. The way the name is written with the model starting with a small letter, is also typical for the newest crop of Android handsets in the Xperia line - think the Sony Ericsson Xperia arc, or the Sony Ericsson Xperia neo.

It also seems that the Xperia duo is running Sony Ericsson's Android overlay, perhaps with the new Facebook inside Xperia integration. We can only speculate if it will come with the 8MP Exmor R camera sensor from the Xperia arc, or maybe the 16MP one can now take advantage of a dual-core chipset better. Any other details are still murky at the moment, but Sony Ericsson did repent its Android mistakes in January, and said it will be hard at work cranking great handsets this year.

Thanks, Philip!

It's fake, look here:http://se-xperia.com/leaked-photos-of-xperia-duo-a ppear/ Would be cool though to have a Xperia with a 16 megapixel camera, full HD video recording (and stereo sound as good as on Nokia N8)... Greets

Higher possibility is that the one on your link's pictures and article is a FAKE. Because, that on your link might be BLACK Xperia mini pro. And this might be a first SE dual core phone, isn't it time for it? And it looks sexy like dual core one...

No! Xperia duo, the name, was leaked along with the arc, neo and PLAY last year. Therefore Xperia duo will definitely be SE's dual core, the question is, is that pic fake or real? P.S. IT186 the Chinese site that provided this pic leaked all of the xperia family (except the pro) last year.

I will keep my eye on this...ppl have been calling for smaller bezels on phones. That would mean the case would be thin on the sides too tho. Or maybe no front cases for this phone?

12. always late unregistered

if it is their new model, you can bet that theyre gonna launch it when dual core processors are history...i mean, when the qadri core models appear, SE will try to launch a dual core one...i dont know why untill today they do that...take forever to make a new model and when they do, its alreay out of date whith a higher price than their competitors which are ahead of them...WAKE UP SE..

14. Deal unregistered

This better not happen... I'm expecting somewhere fall 2011. Else most likely no deal for me =(

13. ltr unregistered

bigger question is, Is any U.S carier gonna get this.

15. RizalMurad unregistered

I hope there will be front facing camera too.. =)

It looks very cool, but it also looks like a mock-up. It sort of seems like an HTC Sensation bezel with a Sony Ericsson phone inside. And also, the music controls are below the dock which just seems wrong.

17. Gsgjjuvf unregistered

Fake. Period.

18. TakeAGuess unregistered

Anyone care to speculate when we'll be seeing this phone in da market?

"Sony Ericsson did repent its Android mistakes in January, and said it will be hard at work cranking great handsets this year." I sorta thought they were refering to the Arc, play, pro, mini pro.. If that's true and the duo is coming out this year, i'd 100% go for it!

Screwing my N8 in the process of course. Here's to hoping that the duo will have a 2nd generation Xmor R or something.. As the Arc's camera, while good, still produces quite abit of noise during low light =/
