Sony Lavender rumored to come with 1080p display, MediaTek MT6752 chip
According to popular leakster @upleaks, Sony is gearing up to launch a new Android smartphone code-named "Lavender". If the rumored specs turn out to be accurate, the new Sony handset will be an upper mid-range smartphone.
Upleaks claims that the new Sony Lavender smartphone will come with a display running a resolution of 1080 by 1920 pixels (FullHD), although no details are shared regarding the size of the panel. The chipset of choice is said to be the MediaTek MT6752, a 64-bit mobile SoC that integrates eight ARM Cortex-53 CPU cores clocked at 2.0GHz, a Mali-T760 GPU, as well as an LTE radio. The MT6752 can be found inside numerous Chinese smartphones such as the Meizu M1 Note or the Lenovo K3 Note. The source also mentions that the Sony Lavender model name is E5503, not to be confounded with the C5503, which is the 2013 Sony Xperia ZR.

With Sony currently updating its smartphone line-up to Android 5.0 Lollipop, chances are that the new smartphone will run 5.0 Lollipop out of the box. At the moment, we can't be sure if this new Sony smartphone will launch globally, or if its reach will be limited to Asian markets.
