We have seen so many leaks of the Sony Ericsson LT26i Nozomi, that it’s nice to finally see a leaked picture of a new Xperia. We were sent the following picture which shows a new Xperia model that looks remarkably similar to the Nozomi pics that leaked recently.
However, this ties in exactly with what we’ve been told by our own sources who say the LT22i Nypon will be very similar in appearance to LT26i Nozomi. The Nypon is believed to sport a 4-inch qHD (540 x 960) display rather than the 4.3-inch (720 x 1280) display of the Nozomi.
In fact the only way we were able to distinguish this leaked phone was by looking at the placement of the front facing camera, which is on the left side on Nypon versus the right side on Nozomi. Also, the Sony Ericsson logo is below the earpiece on this new phone, whilst it sits above the earpiece on Nozomi. Whilst we can’t say for sure, this very much looks like Nypon to us.
Update: We have been given a bit more information on this phone. The phone will have an aluminium curved back cover. Also, if you’re wondering about the ‘Xperia’ chin at the bottom of the phone, this is believed to be a removable cap which can be interchanged for different colours. As always, take these rumours with a pinch of salt.
