Sony ST27 UAProf confirms FWVGA display; first camera sample outed

in Rumours, Xperia active, Xperia go

The Sony ST27, codenamed Lotus, is believed to be the 2012 update to the Xperia active. The UAProf for the ST27i and ST27a variants have already been published and confirm our initial thoughts that the handset would run at FWVGA (480 x 854) resolution. No other specs are confirmed right now, but our guess suggests the use of the NovaThor U8500 chipset (1GHz dual-core) and a 3.5-inch display with 5MP camera.

Talking about the camera, the first camera sample from the ST27 has popped up on Picasaweb. The image is nothing exciting, just a picture of a blue bowl and confirms that the handset is running 6.0.B.3.104 firmware. Hopefully more news on this Xperia active successor will be forthcoming.

    i hope Sony will follow the name of the NXT series.

    Xperia Z series for flagship phone
    Xperia X series for high end phone
    Xperia S series for mid-high end
    Xperia G series for play successor
    Xperia P series for mid end
    Xperia A series for water/shock/dust resistance phone
    Xperia U series for low end phone

  • For Sony’s sake, I hope the Lotus doesn’t run on Gingerbread like some leaks point to. Jelly Bean will be announced in a few month, but Sony hasn’t got one single new phone running on ICS.

    you forgot xperia arc s, ray and neo v?

    Its just a codename guys.. Not the final brandname. Seem like sony making re-branding and re-design and re-spec all old se line up… Must be a tough jobs to make it happen. You gain my respect sony. Not like samsung just change brand name but came with minor change spec but with the same design.. Good job sony…

  • I said “new” phone running on ICS, not an old one which got an update. Releasing new devices with Gingerbread is for many a dealbraker. 

  • silvacrest

    so is every 2011 xperia device getting a successor except the play?

    hopefully sony are just being tight lipped……

  • they upgrade chipset only seems , what about camera , ram and rom memory , nothing… 

  • the ST-Ericsson NovaThor platform doesn’t support ANT+ nor GLONASS capability. Curently only the qualcomm have the ANT+. So if this is indeed next Active phone, it will have qualcomm chipset.
