We'll admit to being a little bewildered after seeing the Sony Ericsson line-up at CommunicAsia. While the Xperia Ray and Active look like good mid-range phones, it did leave us wanting much more. Sort of like the phone described below.
Phone Arena has translated information from a Chinese forum with information about an upcoming Sony Ericsson superphone called Xperia Duo. According to the rumours, the Xperia Duo will pack a dual-core 1.4GHz Qualcomm processor with 1.5GB RAM and a 4.5-inch qHD Reality display with the Sony Bravia Engine in support. Internet forums aren't the most reputable sources of industry information, we know, and the specs are a little hard to swallow, but we can dream right?
The best part of this rumour, but the hardest to believe, is that the Xperia Duo will include a 2500mAh battery. Not that we're saying a phone with this hardware couldn't use it, but it seems unlikely Sony Ericsson could use a battery like this and keep the size, weight and cost down. That said, we'd be happy to be proved wrong.
The icing on this cake (baked with rumour-milled flour) is that the original posters are claiming a September release date for the phone. While this would coincide nicely with the supposed launch schedule for the next-generation iPhone, something tells us this might be jumping the gun a little.
