Yesterday we brought news of a rumoured handset with a 1.4GHz chipset and 720p display codenamed Nozomi. However, whilst Nozomi is only likely to be released in Japan, the LT18i (codenamed Ayame) is likely to see a global release and sport similar processor grunt but ‘only’ a FWVGA (480 x 854) display.
The evidence came from NenaMark1 benchmark where an anonymous user posted up a score of 46.8fps and revealed the processor speed as 1.4GHz and GPU as the Adreno 205. This could even be the same single-core Snapdragon S2 chipset (MSM8655T) that is rumoured to be used in the Nozomi. It is believed that the LT18i Ayame will be very similar to the Xperia arc but with a beefier single-core processor. Click through for a screenshot of the benchmark below.
