It appears that Sony Ericsson are doing what they do best: leaking their devices months before they’re even announced. A couple of days ago we wrote an article about how the Nozomi was to be called the Xperia Arc HD; today we’re seeing photos of the Xperia Arc HD hit the web along with some speculated specifications which are as follows.
- 4.3-inch 1280×720 (341ppi) Capacitive Display
- 1.5GHz Dual-Core CPU
- Android 2.3.5 (Though it could launch at CES with ICS)
- 1GB RAM
- Front & Rear Cameras of unknown MP
There’s also an LED strip that runs across the front of the device (near the bottom) to light up the buttons under the display, and there is also another on the back of the device in the exact same place which will no doubt be used for notifications. The presence of hardware buttons does mean that it will not use the on-screen buttons that are built into Ice Cream Sandwich. This can be seen as a positive as now the whole display can be used to show content instead of 90% of it.
