Sony Ericsson Xperia Duo to Have 1.4GHz Dual Core processor

It has been nearly a month since the first image of the Sony Xperia Duo was seen. It now seems that an official image of Sony Ericsson’s flagship model has emerged. According to a report, the press image had surfaced through a Chinese website and with it some information of the possible specifications it may feature - a powerful NovaThor A9500 chipset that is coupled with a Dual Cortex A9 cores as well as a Mali-400 GPU. The smartphone also features a 1.4 GHz dual-core processor; so far this will be the highest capacity processor as compared to the 1.2 GHz dual-core processor seen on the SGSII and the LG Optimus 2X. The Android 2.3 aka Gingerbread running handset is also rumoured to be having a Sony Bravia Mobile engine.

Other rumored specifications of the Sony Ericsson Xperia Duo are:



  • 4.5-inch qHD screen (540 x 960 pixels)
  • 12 megapixel camera
  • 2500 mAh battery

This is Sony Ericsson’s second 12 mega pixel camera the first being the Sony Ericsson Satio; however, unlike the first this Xperia Duo is aesthetically styled with its slim form factor and looks like it has been targeted at an audience who want style as well as power. These are pretty impressive specifications and a smartphone one has to surely look out for. As of now there is no word on a release date or price. But we are pretty sure the wait won’t be for too long. Hopefully, this will be the first to launch with such a high capacity processor unless someone else beats them to it.
