Mobil.nu claims to have received a few Sony Ericsson internal documents that show the company’s “Rachel” handset, an Android powered slab-shaped smartphone that sports an 8.1 megapixel autofocus camera.  According to Mobile.nu, the phone’s spec sheet includes a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU as well as a touchscreen display that is at least 4-inches in size (diagonally).  They also mention 7.2Mbps HSPA data rates and the ability to show 3D rendered graphics - presumably for games.

The site also mentions a 3.5mm headphone jack, which is nice, and a “mini-USB” port, which seems a bit unlikely.  Sony Ericsson has never really used the mini-USB port much, save for the Xperia X1, and considering the company’s planned move to micro-USB for charging, the smaller micro sized port would seem more likely to me, but anything is possible.
