Upcoming Sony Ericsson SK17i snapped in every angle, sized up against X10 mini pro

in Xperia mini and Xperia mini pro


Sony Ericsson SK17i Sony Ericsson has a notoriously bad reputation when it comes to leaks and it doesn’t look like that will stop any time soon. We have a full gallery of pictures below of the yet-to-be-announced successor to the X10 mini pro. The Sony Ericsson SK17i ‘Mango’ will be an Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) device with a 3-inch (320 × 480) display, 5MP camera and sliding QWERTY keyboard.

It has been pictured in almost every angle by the bods over at Mobile.163 in high-res detail leaving nothing to the imagination. They’ve also conveniently compared the handset to the X10 mini pro in a number of the pics (remember the X10 mini pro has a smaller 2.55-inch display). Other things we noticed was a flap cover for the USB port and a 1200mAh battery. All of the pictures are available after the jump.

    The screen looks like it’s resistive SE better not mess around like that…!!!

    Wonderful!!! I’m seriously in love.

    ? How can you tell if it’s resistive from a picture?

    +1

    My thoughts exactly (+ bigger battery!)

    Looking forward to this as an X10MP owner!

    A couple of questions though.

    1) The Micro USB. why did they have to move it and add a silly cover to it. Also the socket looks different (better still be microUSB)

    2) Can someone translate the battery picture? Is there a 1500mAh option? that would be great!

    Dude do you know how much popular the mini pro is? I sold several xperia units ( X2 – X10 – X8 – mini – mini pro) and my god people love the mini pro! They even buy it for the highest price.

    This device is really popular and for it’s size + keyboard it’s a big winner. I just can’t wait for this new mini pro. Hd recording!! So sweet, and the 5 mp camera on the mini pro is already great and takes very nice pics. So, imagine now with a 1200 mah battery compared to the 930 mah, this phone will rock big time!

    The thing that bothered me most is the low resolution it sucked, but now with the higher resolution it will look way better! I know this as a fact because the X8 had this resolution and the screen looked really good compared to the mini.

    It seems like they’ve improved most areas and went back in a couple (I hate flap covers!).

    Even small things, like having what looks like a totally flat screen. Not sure on your X10MP but on mine the screen is slightly not flush with the rest of the face and with a screen protector on, the edge doesn’t stick on properly. Also, I hope they’ve improved the camera button, I find it a little to hard to press without causing shake. My previous c902 was better in this aspect (but having said that, the k750 was the best, why can’t they use the same mechanism???)

    Just need to know the internals now. Hopefully it’s a faster CPU + a little bit more memory.

    I feel your pain man, because I’m also in the same boat :D

    However, I’m so optimistic about this phone. After seeing the new xperia range ( Arc – Neo) they are fantastic! That’s the reason I hope s/e will resolve most of the issues you discussed.

    Regarding the CPU are you kidding me bro! It will have a 1 Ghz CPU powered by the same GPU on the new Xperia range if I’m not mistaken.

    Fingers crossed bud!

    Because of the dots in the screen…

    Could be similar to the HTC Incredible which is supposed to be capacitive?

    “As far as usability, everything seems well. Touches were registered with relative ease, and there were no misfires. HTC has carved out a great arsenal of capacitive touch displays, second to only you-know-who, but we still hate looking at the capacitive points on the display. You can see them really easily.” – http://www.bgr.com/2010/04/19/htc-droid-incredible-for-verizon-wireless-review/

    The thickness of the new model appears to be the same, if not lesser than that of the MiniPro, which is great. Now if only they can get the pricing right at launch, unlike what they did with the Mini series

  • Roxas13kh

    looks to me like it’s supposed to be a successor to both the x8 and the mini pro…

  • Alimas

    jeez i got x10 mini pro a week ago. wish i’d known this.

    I really hope that is not resistive, that would be a silly way to ruin a great phone, but let me remind you that we are talking about Sony Ericsson

    Any word on release date?

    Well i am from India and I actually bought this phone 2 days ago for 15000 Rs.. Additional features not mentioned here include its 1Ghz processor, 512 MB ram &rom,400Mb internal memory and 16GB expandable memory smile,scene recognition+image stabiliser (lots of other focus features too)and also HD recording..battery life would be approx 5&1/2 to 6 hrs of talktime…Also it has a front vga camera for videophone…and it sports android 2.3 gingerbread OS…however major drawback would be that it supports only mp4 format for video player..rest alll is specified above and its a great phone overall… i personally would give it a 8/10 compared to current xperia phones

    hi ashish 
    to say it is a multi-touch phone .to say it is a descent performer first when i saw the phone during the release it was a small one i thought that it would be difficult for people who do long journeys but amazingly as compared to the SE xperia x10 mini pro it has a greater 1200 mAh .and yes also it has face -detection,at last for a small smartphone like this the mighty price of around 15000 is too high
    but to say it is affordable as it is an android device caus this is the android era
