1.4 GHz dual-core Sony Ericsson Xperia Duo press shot leaks

13 July, 2011

Sony Ericsson seems to be having a hard time keeping their upcoming flagship the Xperia Duo under wraps. We just got another press shot of the dual-core smartphone, along with some juicy rumors about its specs sheet.

According to the source, the Sony Ericsson Xperia Duo possibly uses the NovaThor A9500 chipset, which combines a couple of Cortex A9 cores with the Mali-400 GPU. It's basically the same deal that you get with the Samsung I9100 Galaxy S II, except that this time the CPU clock is even higher.

The other rumored scenario will see the Xperia Duo packing the Qualcomm MSM8260 Snapdragon chipset, which is the one that powers the HTC Sensation.

And the best bit is that an overclocked version of one of the two most powerful currently available mobile chipsets isn't all the Sony Ericsson Xperia Duo can offer. The Gingerbread-running smartphone will also feature an impressive 4.5" qHD screen with the Bravia Mobile engine. The list continues with a 12 megapixel camera and an unbelievable sounding 2500 mAh battery.

As you could imagine, it's way too early to talk about release dates or pricing yet. We are hoping, though that an official announcement will come in the next few weeks.
