Now that Sony Ericsson Xperia Nozomi is no longer a mystery, attention is redirected towards the next generation of smartphones developed by Sony: the Nyphon.
The first clue offered by the leaked information is the brand: simply Sony. As most of us know, by mid-2012 Sony Ericsson will be listed just as Sony. As a simple correlation might suggest, the new generation of smarphones should be expected after mid-2012, when Sony will be the new official brand of the manufacturer.
Regarding the spec of the new Sony LT22, codenamed Nyphon, leaked information suggests an embedded 1GHz dual-core U8500 chipset (created by ST-Ericsson), 4 inch qHD display, an Exmor R camera with 8 megapixels, backlit sensor, 16GB dedicated for storage and 1GB of RAM memory. If this information proves to be valid, this spec will turn out to be extremely similar to the already existing Sony Ericsson Nozomi, and therefore one cannot see the reason for waiting more than half a year in order to acquire the new smartphone.
The Sony Nyphon, according to current information, will run on Android Gingerbread at its starting point and it will be upgradeable to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich once the official release of the new operating system is available for costumers.
Given that this recent information is neither official nor final, certain new features are to be expected, including design, specs, properties and others. On the other hand, if this will constitute the final release of Sony Nyphon, certain costumers may not be impressed with the lack of ingenuity of the new generation of smartphones created by Sony. Some currently unknown aspects that are yet to be revealed may put the new smartphone in a brighter light, and one can only hope for the best when it comes to the link between performance and price tag.
