Sony ST26i leaks out, green globe logo nowhere to be seen

UPDATE: Thanks to a tipster, we got a whiff of the alleged specs - 4" qHD screen, 1GHz ST-Ericsson U8500 chipset, 512MB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage and HD video capable camera.
announcement of the Sony Xperia GX flagship and the thinnest LTE phone out there the Xperia SX for Japan, now another handset is making the unofficial rounds.
It is codenamed as the Sony ST26i, and unlike the GX and SX, it does sport capacitive buttons at the front, but the green globe logo is nowhere to be seen.
Sony is apparently preparing an Android onslaught this year, as its leaked roadmap had more than 10 devices in it.
If the ST26i pictured here is not some ditched prototype, it might fit somewhere in the handsets scheduled for summer launch, like the so-called Olive I or the Lotus, but as far as specs go, it's anyone's guess.
- Display 4.0" 480 x 854 pixels
- Camera 5 MP / 0.3 MP VGA front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon S1, Single core, 1000 MHz
- Storage 4 GB + microSDHC
- Battery 1750 mAh(7.3h 3G talk time)

Competitors need to take Sony seriously now! Sony are back! More competition the better for all of us!

If this is indeed not the GX, then the GX is better specs-wise, but I like the physical design of this phone as well. Only let downs are the specs... May be my next smartphone's a Sony... Unless the One X or SGSIII really attracts me more. I really hate the physical design of the SGSIII, and the One X supports a "meh" list of specs, imho... HTC could've at least done a little more to push it as the beast smartphone of their One Series... The SGSIII is intriguing w/their features (software-, hard-, and accerssory-wise), but the physical design is kind of keeping me away from it. The back is just outrageous from look at the photos, at least the One X looks a lot better, but can't really say for sure until I lay my hands on all the phones I want to have and try them out... Hopefully the iPhone 5 isn't a major upgrade from the 4S, otherwise mostly sticking with Android for a while. The variety results in competition and a difficult consumer choice, one of the good problems of Android =)

I always wondered why Sony needed Ericsson in the first place. Without them, they seem to be doing WAY better. I really think Sony can become a serious competitor once again with these new devices. I'm a HUGE Sony fan, so I'm crossing my fingers. :)
