CommunicAsia is being held in Singapore this week, and a great many smartphones were announced at this tradeshow. Notably absent, though, was the Sony Ericsson Xperia X2, this company’s second Windows phone.
Despite the lack of an official announcement, many details of this upcoming model have leaked out, including some pictures.
The Xperia X2 will supposedly have larger Touchscreen than the current model — 3.5 inches vs. 3.0 inches — and this will be an OLED rather than the more common LCD display.
The pictures show that, like its predecessor, this device will be a slider, with the screen moving aside to reveal a landscape-oriented keyboard.
The X2 will reportedly launch with Windows Mobile 6.5 Pro on it, a sign that it’s not going to hit store shelves until this fall at the earliest. Microsoft is still putting the finishing touches on the next version of its mobile operating system. In addition, an upgrade to Windows Mobile 7 will be release when its available in 2010.
This device will still use the Xperia panels that were the hallmark of the original.
It’s not known exactly what Qualcomm processor this smartphone will use, but it’s supposed to be faster than the one on the Xperia X1. In addition, Sony Ericsson has reportedly tuned the software for maximum performance.
In the memory department, this model will have 512 MB of RAM and a removable memory card slot.
Other features will allegedly include an 8.1 MPx camera capable of taking VGA video at 30 fps, a GPS receiver, 3.5 mm headset jack, and an accelerometer.
In addition, the Xperia X2 will almost certainly include some form of mobile broadband, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth.
