Sony Ericsson LT18i = next Xperia flagship?

Sony Ericsson has made public the latest UAProf (user-agent profile) for an as-yet unannounced handset with model number LT18i. The codename makes it likely that this handset could be the next flagship from Sony Ericsson following on from the Xperia arc, which has the model number LT15i. UAProfs are used to reveal a device’s properties for web page rendering and MMS exchange.

We have no idea whether this handset is the fabled dual-core Xperia duo that has been doing the rounds recently. The UAProf tells us that the LT18i will come with the same display resolution as the Xperia arc (480 x 854 pixels).

Little else is known about this model, however engineers at Sony Ericsson posted the first sample photo from the LT18i a few days back on Picasa. The photo has since been taken down although not before we managed to save the snap. The image was downsized to a 2MP image, so we have no idea what resolution the image was originally taken at. This could be running the same 8MP Exmor R sensor as the Xperia arc or perhaps something more powerful. Time will tell on that front, in the meantime check out the sample image below.
