Over the last few days a lot of people have been getting very excited about the Sony Experia (Xperia) X12 Anzu, many thought that the brand new Sony flagship would come pre-loaded with Android Gingerbread – sadly this isn’t the case and the handset will be launched on Froyo 2.2.
Eldar Murtazin of mobile-review.com managed to get hold of a review unit which actually was running Android 2.1, he was reliably informed the handset will launch complete with 2.2 with Gingerbread coming a little down the line (possibly as late as Summer 2011).
The leak has also confirmed that the device will have a 4.3 inch LCD screen, a 12 megapixel camera (that shoots 720p video, not 1080p) and a rumoured 800MHz Qualcomm processor. According to Eldar it’s pretty quick too. He also confirmed Sony will layer their own software over the Android OS – much in the same was as HTC Sense interface.
One thing you need to remember is that these reports are based on a prototype model, therefore comments about the casing being poor quality and other observations could all be ironed out before the device is available officially.
