Another new Sony (not Ericsson, the two have now parted company) phone has been leaked ahead of next week’s Mobile World Congress.
And this one is the Sony Xperia U, which is the little brother of the already much discussed Xperia S.
TechRadar spotted the leaked snap, and you can take a look for yourself here. The phone is a very similar looking design to the Xperia S, except on a smaller scale.
The Xperia U will apparently boast a 3.5 inch (WVGA) display, the same size as the iPhone, and a 1GHz processor, along with a 5 megapixel camera.
It’s a more mid-end phone with doubtless a more middling and affordable price than the Xperia S. Some sources have pegged it at around the £250 mark, but we’ll have to wait for confirmation of the price nearer the time it’s ready for the shelves. An April launch is on the cards.
The Xperia S itself is loaded up with a 1.5GHz dual-core processor and 4.3 inch display.
Naturally, both are Android devices, with Gingerbread expected to be on board the Xperia U, but a swift upgrade to Ice Cream Sandwich should be delivered.
Prepare for a lot of new phone announcements next week as Mobile World Congress comes to town.
Other MWC leaks of late have been the Optimus Vu, LG’s rival to the Galaxy Note which will be shown off at the event, and ZTE which has two fresh Ice Cream Sandwich handsets to reveal.
