Sony Xperia LT22 Pictured Sans-Ericsson [UPDATE]

After learning of Sony’s plans to buy-out Ericsson and drop the company’s name, we’ve been on the lookout for the first-such hardware that would reflect the new company organization. Though we’ve been seeing plenty of shots of upcoming phones, so far they’ve still been featuring the old name with Ericsson still in place. Today, though, some images have been released of what’s supposed to be the Xperia LT22, and finally only Sony’s name is present.

The LT22 has been referred to as both the Nyphon and Nypon. Rumored hardware specs include a dual-core U8500 1GHz processor, a four-inch qHD screen, one gigabyte of RAM, 16GB flash storage, and one of Sony’s back-illuminated Exmor R eight-megapixel sensors for the main camera.

We’re not sure when the LT22 is scheduled for release, assuming what we’re seeing in these images here is legitimate, but it can’t be too far out; we’re hearing it will ship with Gingerbread installed and upgrade to Ice Cream Sandwich at a later date, just like this past year’s pack of Xperias still featuring Sony Ericsson branding.

Update: Lame. Looks like this one’s just a concept build, though an impressive-looking one at that.
