I like rumors. Rumors are fun. If you like them as much as I do, you may want to listen up. According to the boys over at GSMArena, they have it on good authority that Sony Ericsson getting set to release an all new flagship device codenamed the Xperia Arc HD (formerly known as Nozomi). As the name suggests, the Arc HD will be packing a high definition 1280×720 resolution screen.
This pretty much falls into line with what we’ve been hearing of the device but it’s always nice to hear it from another “anonymous source.” Since we’re talking about Sony here one of the device’s new features will be the ability to take still shots while recording 1080p, HD video. I was a little disappointed that their tipster couldn’t confirm the dual-core processor we’ve heard was recently added to the device but he did mention it was “blazing fast.”
A Sony Ericsson with a 720p display and dual-core processor sounds like all win to me. Combine that with Sony Ericsson’s affinity for speedy updates and I’d be willing to bet the farm we’re looking at a next-gen Android 4.0 device. No word yet on when the Xperia Arc HD will be released but it’s said to hit European markets sometime in early 2012.
