Sony Ericsson ‘Aoba’ & ‘Nozomi’ 1.5GHz dual-core phones appear in benchmark

in Rumours

Sony Ericsson NozomiA couple of future Sony Ericsson’s handsets have made an appearance in the Nenamark benchmark. The Sony Ericsson Nozomi and Sony Ericsson Aoba, both likely to be codenames, show up with a few specs too. The SE Nozomi has specs that corroborate with what we were already told by our tipster. Namely it is a 1.5GHz dual-core smartphone with Adreno 220 graphics and a 1280 x 720 pixel display. The handset is running Android 2.3.5 in the benchmark, most likely to change by release.

The Sony Ericsson Aoba specs are identical to Nozomi from what we could tell. Either this means SE is planning two high-end handsets with maybe slightly different offerings (screen sizes, features) or one of these is just a prototype. We’ll bring you more news as we have it.

    So I guess we are looking forward to Qualcomm S3 chipsets through the whole 2012 line up as S2s in the 2011 lineup. So no Krait love for us :(

    Can’t.. hold.. back… any longer…… ME WANT!! >.< (though i can't really compare these phones against those in the market right now cause i've totally never heard of this benchmark nor can i find scores based on this benchmark for other phones currently out right now XD)

    Noticed the firmware version used is still 2.3.5 and rumor has it that SE will be putting ICS on these Nozomi. Guess even SE still can't test ICS on their devices yet huh~

    I just hope that by the time they come out, it isn't outdated to the point where other manufacturers are using quad core chips with higher processing power and power efficency =(
    Though SE still ALWAYS has the best designs IMHO XD

    Anyone whana speculate when they'll be out? ;P

  • damnse!

    It make my decision easier than the expect, they let HTC stole the light for everything Qualcomm 28nm and even worse ST-Ericsson!!!

  • Ichtus

    Adreno 220? This chip will be outdated when they release these phones…

  • Look at the screen resolution. Very interesting!

  • Asad Mulla

    Resolution aside, Does anybody else think screen sizes are making the phones in our pockets too big? I know there are smaller options with similar specs but the flagship is the flagship and thats what we want.

    Interesting, sadly not as competitive as other companies, i don’t care though i want it.  but i hope it’s not to big, i think the perfect size would be anywhere between the ray and the arc.  (arc too big, ray too small)  both are BEAUTIFUL phones, which i think only the iphone 4 is as pretty.  so i am looking forward for this… and WHY SE are not talking to ATT for these new phones?  come on start the negotiation from now, so that the american market won’t wait so long…   HURREY

    I’m guessing early November announcement and launched just after Mobile World Congress – Q12012.

    You should read the original Nozomi article linked to above. It has a 4.3 inch display, Arc has 4.2, so it will definitely be bigger. Don’t think it’s possible to cram 1280×720 into something smaller, at least not cheap.

    An of course they are talking to AT&T. If a phone isn’t available with an operator, it’s because of the operator, not the phone manufacturer.

  • betatesterz

    or.. OR, they could have came up with an engineering marvel which allows them to achieve a small screen bezel which makes it possible to keep the screen size big while retaining the overall size XD

    i also expected to see the Adreno 225 and thus the Krait a.k.a Snapdragon S4 but it’s seem se doesn’t agree with me i hope these or just prototypes, Sony Ericsson need a flag ship that will set the android world on fire, even with their wonderful designs overly cautious steps aren’t going work.

  • Dada

    no xenon light, no camera shell, no QWERTY keyboard, no normal Call Buttons
    not to me…

  • Dada

    … and to big for me

  • tomek

    No Xenon flash, no Qwerty Keyb, No normal Call Buttons – i’m not interesting

    I’m using c905 (fatal C key – 3 times serviced) and C901(no wifi,gps and videocalls) but need bigger touch screen , no matter java, android or wp … ok satio is great but no keyboard- Why Xenon ? Becasue i make thousend photos when i go to the pubs for example, or am i on in dark places – i don’t want to go for a parties with extra camera Why Keyboard ? I had Xperia Mini Pro and keyboard for sms and internet is a big thing. Why Call Buttons ? In wet condition , cold.. And it’s faster
