Sony Ericsson teases us with a new device, is it the Xperia Arc HD?
The Sony Ericsson Nozomi, also reffered to as the Xperia Arc Hd, hasn’t been the most well kept secret - pictures of what’s expected to be the next Sony Ericsson flagship have popped up from pretty much everywhere in the past month. What makes these different? There’s nothing blurry or unsure about them - the folks from ITProPortal are confident that they have gotten none other than the Nozomi and have given us the pictorial evidence.

But what’s interesting is that Sony Ericsson has teased a very similar device on its German Facebook page leaving us guessing what could it be. 

The picture shows only the back of the device, but that’s enough to spot one difference - the camera is not located in the center, but it's offset to the left. This also differs from previous Facebook teasers SE has posted about an upcoming device, which seems to have its camera on the right.

And the camera could turn out to be one of the biggest standout features of the new Sony Ericsson phones - the snapper is expected to be a 12 megapixel one. 

The initial benchmarks of the Sony Ericsson Nozomi aka Arc HD don’t impress, though - the handset has scored a pretty average 2,219 on Quadrant.

I think the only teaser is the 3rd picture and that the first 2 are just from the arc(s) And i think the would say Full HD instead of HD
