A new Sony filing showed up at the United States Patent and Trademark Office. The application refers to “mobile phones and accessories” and there’s little to no doubt we are looking at a phone judging from the Xperia moniker which accompanies the name.
Xperia Sola could be the name used by either an already unveiled phone, a new phone that we’ve heard of thanks to leaks or a completely new device. The Xperia S could very well wear the name and so could any of the eleven names we’ve seen on the leaked Sony phone roadmap for 2012; it could also be a new device not on the list. We’ll let you know as soon as we find out more information.
