Sony ST26i leaks out, spotted in benchmarks
We've heard about the Sony ST26i, a mysterious handset existing only in rumor-land, but that's not really something that would make us seriously think it's real. Now, though, it's surfaced on benchmarks and spotted out in China, and it looks like a decent mid-range offering.

Good news is that the Sony ST26i runs on Android Ice Cream Sandwich from the get go. Also, it features a 4-inch, 854 x 480-pixel screen. To cut the price to more affordable, Sony went with a Qualcomm MSM7627A chip, with the processor clocked at 800MHz and an Adreno 200 graphical chip on board. 

This negates previous rumors about an ST-Ericsson U8500-flavored device with a dual-core 1GHz processor. Or who knows, there might be another version with the ST-Ericsson chip. Time will tell.

So I really want this phone to have a ST-Ericsson U8500 not the slow Qualcomm S1 used in Xperia X10 , Nexus One and Galaxy Ace etc. And this processor is not capable of running ICS due to it's low performance and old architecture ! For expamle Qualcomm Snapdragon S2 used in all 2011 Xperia Line can handle it ! Sony please make it with ST-Ericsson U8500 and Mali 400 !

don't think they're gonna use a s1 chip in this phone as the u already has the st-ericsson and will cost about 250€ is i'm correct so probably they will use the st-ericsson or at least s2
