Details have leaked about Sony Ericsson's new "super phone", and the specs sound impressive. But given the track record, can an Xperia ever actually be a phone that really matters?
Details have appeared on the official Bluetooth Special Interest Group site of a new Xperia, the LT28at. The Android phone packs a 4.55-inch screen with 720p "Reality Display", and features LTE and HSPA radios in addition to TD-SCDMA support for Chinese networks.
Elsewhere, there's a 13-megapixel (!) camera with back-illuminated sensor and LED flash that's able to record video in 720p, a front-facing camera, dual microphones, 2.4GHz and 5GHz 802.11n Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth 2.1.
So, there's a lack of processor and performance data here, but those specs make it sound like it could end up holding its own. It's just a shame that every other Xperia to date has sucked arse.
Still, this one is listed as "coming later" for the US, so we might get to see if this one sucks as much as its predecessors at CES. Let's just hope we get a non-LTE variant arriving on our shores too -- we wouldn't want to miss out if Sony Ericsson finally makes a phone worth lusting after.
