Sony Ericsson mystery phone uploading images to Picasa – is it the Nozomi?

Posted: , by Scott H.

Sony Ericsson mystery phone uploading images to Picasa – is it the Nozomi?
Two new phones from Sony Ericsson have started to upload picture to Picasa, with the labels ST25i and LT28AT. Nothing else is known about these designations, but it has been speculated that they may be variants of the LT26i, which is the model number previously associated with the SE Nozomi.

The Nozomi is expected in Q1 2012, when it will launch as Sony Ericsson’s next flagship device. It’s expected to introduce a 720p screen, a dual-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon CPU, and possibly launch with Ice Cream Sandwich. It’s also expected to show the same emphasis on camera technology as seen in the Galaxy Nexus. In addition to a f/2.4 aperture, the sensor is thought to be capable of 12MP shots at 4000x3000 resolution.

The new images on Picasa don’t reveal more details, but there are really only two possible explanations – either these are photos taken by Sony Ericsson’s new flagship, or there are multiple new Android handsets in the pipeline. Neither seems like a bad proposition. We’ll presumably learn more at CES in January; until then, enjoy these leaked shots that are thought to be of the Nozomi:

ooo man! Snapdragon :S

Why would a manufacturer use it with so many better SoCs out there! Tegra2, TI OMAP, Kal-El.

And that is sony\'s back to the top device? Pfft

This is what I like about Sony/Sony Ericsson, they don't release a sh*t load of phones but when they do release one, it's pretty darn good.

Take the Xperia Arc for example, it's the best single core smartphone in the market.

Surely NOT!
I have both, and take people (lot of people) to pick one. 90% pick Xperia arc.

Comes half a year late... It matches the specifications of the galaxy 2, and even it surpasses them. However, by the time this phone goes purchassing-public, the galaxy 3 will be soon to arrive with its 12mpx camera, quadcore processor, and manyother beauties in its display, design, and ram prowess.

Don't get your thoughts on that galaxy S3. If Samsung had that camera technology they would have built a 12 mpx by now like Nokia and Sony only Sony / Never liked the name Ericsson

Of course samsung has the technology, they had it with their samsung pixon12. However, focus has changed now an the quantity of mpx is not that important now, what is important is the quality. 8mpx phone cameras now are better than 8mpx phone cameras 2 years ago. So, galaxy3 will have a 12mpx camera, but nobody will prefered it over any other cellphone for that... People will coose it for its quadcore power, 2gb of ram, 32gb of internal memory, 4,6" of hd super amoled screen, and its slim profile. It does not matter if its camera sensor is 12mpx or not (but it will be) the rest of its specifications will destroy its competitors.

Quality was always important. There were flops made by LG or samsung or even Nokia (N86), SE (Satio) but it wasn't all about mpx.
Many 5 mpx phones (n82, Elm, Nokia 6700 ) do better pictures than some high end phones today.

Yes, they had this technology once.
But now it's far to old to compete with other high end camera phones.
They may have the resources to do something newer and better, but samsung doesn't focus on that field anymore.
Then, it was a race between LG, Samsung, Nokia and SE to be the best in camera department.

Today, the main race is about dual cores and fluid system, applications.
Only Nokia and SE left and developing camera phones (SE is lost a little bit, and for me ARC was a dissapointment...they could do it much more better; Nokia created N8 which is still a KING in camera department).
And no, Galaxy S 3 won't have this camera unit. Won't have xenon flash or super duper optics because samsung doesn't matter about it anymore). And it will not destroy competitors because it depends on what you really need from your device.

Timescape might be the most unappealing UI compared to the other android Heavyweights. But it has one minor advantage though. . .
The concept of timescape is simplicity, for ease of use to the general users, unlike sense UI, Timescape UI's simplicity prevents the phone from lagging for the most part and reduce power consumption. . .

i always see lag when we swap between homescreen that has facebook widget. u no, when i love x10 like crazy, it come out that it cant not support multi-touch. and when se release se arc that has multi-touch, other companies like samsung and htc or lg.... already release dual core devices. not to mention se always release devices that have only cpu behind competition, like snapdragon. and low memory device. tell u the truth, if se is as fast as sg2, i\'ll buy it since i love the design of se\'s flagship devices so much. but i have to admit that se really behind fall behind the competition so much that i cant buy. i\'ll consider if nozomi catch up to others :D

Pictures not looking too good.. I was hoping for a 2nd gen eXmor R sensor on this thing that would be more impressive then the Arc..

Pictures taken that i\'m talking about -->http://sebbs.it168.com/thread-340335466-1-1.html
