According to recent rumors, Sony Ericsson will unveil two Android-powered smartphones at the upcoming CES. According to reports, they will be the Xperia S and the Xperia Ion, wearing a “Sony”-only branding (though it is yet unknown whether it will be accompanied by the “Sony Ericsson” branding too, or not).
The Xperia S is a new name but it appears to relate to the LT26i “Nozomi” phone which we’ve recently saw previewed (though with a full “Sony Ericsson” branding at the top). You should expect specs like 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 12-megapixel camera, and a 720p.
As far as the Xperia Ion goes there is nothing really known about the phone except for the fact that the manufacturer trademarked the name. While we attributed the Xperia Ion name to the LT28at which took a picture with its 13-megapixel camera, recent reports indicate that the phone will indeed be the LT29i Hayabusa. This will allegedly look similar to the Xperia Arc and Arc S but with specs closer to the Xperia S above.
We’ll just have to wait a couple of more days for official CES wording. Anyways, rest assured that we’ll be there to check the phone(s) out as part of our CES coverage.
