Two new Sony Xperia leak, should be Nypon and Kumquat

16 January, 2012

The MWC is coming in a few weeks and Sony is definitely up for some announcements there. The Xperia S has already stolen the spotlight, but it is yet to see what's coming.

Today we get a glimpse of that. Two unknown Xperia smartphones popped up in a group photo. The bigger fella at the bottom should be the codenamed Xperia Nypon - a NovaThor U8500-based handset with a 4" qHD Reality display and 8MP camera with 1080p video recording. It looks much like the already announced Xperia S, but as you already noticed - the specs are different.

The smaller Xperia gadget at the top should be perhaps the one rumored as Kumquat - the Xperia mini successor. It is also supposed to be based on the NovaThor U8500 chipset, but should feature a smaller 3.5" FWVGA Reality display and a 5 megapixel snapper with 720p video recording. It could be also the previously leaked Xperia Pepper, but the device on the picture seems smaller than the Pepper.

The next-gen NovaThor-based Xperia are under way for sure. Sony is now preparing for the MWC in February, so we won’t have to wait too long before the official announcements.
