When the figures for global smartphone shipments in Q4 of 2012 were released by IDC they revealed that HTC is losing its grip and Sony is making gains. Sony claimed fourth place in the chart…
Two of Sony Ericsson’s rumored upcoming Android handsets have recently appeared on the NenaMark database. Benchmark results show two seemingly identical handsets, codenamed the Sony Ericsson Nozomi and the Sony Ericsson Aoba.
Both handsets were reported as separate devices on NenaMark, but both bear identical specs, as follows:
Apart from its benchmark results on NenaMark, very little else has been reported about the Sony Ericsson Aoba. Bearing the same results as the Aoba, the Sony Ericsson Nozomi, on the other hand, has been previously rumored for release some time during the Christmas season, although more recent reports are saying that it’s slated for release in early 2012.
But, the juiciest bit reported about the Nozomi is that it’s going to have Android 2.4/4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
Leaked tips and rumors about Sony Ericsson Nozomi say it’s going to come with the following specs (aside from those revealed on NenaMark):
It is not yet clear whether the Nozomi and the Aoba are different handsets. It is possible that both are early prototypes and are not yet production units.
Yet, if those specs make it to actual production units, both the Sony Ericsson Nozomi and the Sony Ericsson Aoba will trump the Samsung Galaxy S II and the Motorola DROID Bionic–at least in camera pixelage and display resolution.
Anyone hoping for these Android handsets to hit the market before this year ends rather than in early 2012?
