Sony Ericsson’s 4.3-inch smartphone codenamed “Nozomi” will be released as the company’s next global flagship phone some time later this year.  Sony Ericsson’s other rumored phone, the SK19i, has been set aside.

An anonymous tipster spilled the beans about the Sony Ericsson Nozomi to Xperia Blog.  According to the tipster, Sony Ericsson will be releasing the Nozomi as Sony Ericsson’s next flagship handset in Japan under the model number SO-02D.  The source also mentioned that the an international version of the handset will also be released under the model number LT26i or LT26a.

Specs and features of the Sony Ericsson Nozomi include 1 GB of RAM, support for a micro SIM card, single-core 1.4-GHz Snapdragon processor, and a 4.3-inch 1280×720 HD display (proclaimed as the new display standard in recently launched high-end devices).

The rumored release of this latest development from Sony Ericsson also goes with the cancellation of the much heard-about Sony Ericsson Xperia ray pro, also known as the Sony Ericsson SK19i. The said SK19i model, which was canceled according to the source of the tip, was said to be a QWERTY smartphone intended for AT&T and was going to sit in Sony Ericsson’s line-up in between the Xperia Mini Pro and the Xperia Pro.

Sony Ericsson has been offering a lot of breakthroughs in mobile technology including Android phones like the Xperia ray, Xperia arc, Xperia duo, and Xperia play. And, with the latest rumor, add Nozomi to that growing list. This device can be a best seller for Sony Ericsson.

Is the Sony Ericsson Nozomi the kind of phone that you are waiting for?
