Sony Ericsson LT28i ‘Aoba’ photo sample appears, suggests GSM version of LT28at is on horizon

Sony Ericsson LT28i sampleThe Sony Ericsson LT28at ‘Aoba’ has some very exciting specifications if the recent leak is anything to go by. We are talking about a 1.5GHz dual-core chipset, 4.55-inch (720 x 1280) display, 13MP camera and LTE highlighting it is probably destined for AT&T in the United States. This seems to trump the spec-sheet of the Sony Ericsson LT26i Nozomi, which is believed to have a 1.5GHz dual-core chipset, 4.3-inch 720p display and a 12MP camera.

Many people have been questioning whether a GSM version of the Sony Ericsson LT28at is being planned or not. We have already come across a previous benchmark of the LT28i ( the ‘i’ suggesting it will be the GSM version) that suggests it should be the case, however that was a while back. Some more recent evidence in the form of picture sample from the Sony Ericsson LT28i provides much more compelling evidence of a European/Asian release. This is all very well and good, however we do wonder whether 4.55-inches is perhaps just a bit too big for comfortable day-to-day use. What are your thoughts?

Thanks Jonas!

    Well, it might be fake, U know that U can edit EXIF info. Actually LT28i is still not on UA-profiles list (my script is checking it almost every day), only LT28at (it’s here if U are interested: http://sony-ericsson-cz.com/open/profiles.html ). U can see only ST25 is for Europe and USA. But it all might be changed, let’s see …

    4.55-inches is too big for a smartphone.

    ive said it many times, 4.2 4.3 max screen size, My Arc is perfect

    depends if it has buttons or not :)

    What you need to remember is this could easily be like the Galaxy Nexus, it has a slightly bigger screen due to the back, home, multi-task buttons appearing on screen!

    True, but we always do our fact checks before posting a story. The above picture was taken by Christopher Håkansson who is a Staff Engineer at Sony Ericsson (http://se.linkedin.com/in/christopherhakansson). We very much doubt he would have faked the EXIF data…

    Understood, but U have to post it in article what did U wrote here in comment, after that there would’nt be any other misgiving about reliability of EXIF data :)

    Anyway if it is LT28i, still it’s only prototype. I still think there will be only AT&T version, just simple question: why to have HW very similar, very closely same phones for Europe? My logic says LT26i for EU, LT28at for USA, just my opinion which can be wrong in real.

    Yeah, probably not that different in size to the Xperia Arc if the buttons are on-screen.
