We already saw some sample pictures from the upcoming Sony LT30 ‘Mint’ flagship pop up in Picasa at the end of last month. However, we now have the first full resolution sample photos from the Sony Xperia LT30p, courtesy of nixanbal.com. The EXIF data confirms that these pictures are indeed from the LT30p and were taking with the phone running firmware version 7.0.A.2.4_56_f100.
The nixanbal report suggests that the LT30p’s power/volume/camera button placement will sit to the lower end of the phone so that it is easier to reach with your thumb. It also suggests that the new software will feature widgets (such as a calculator or remote control app) that can run on top of existing apps. This sounds very similar to the “Small apps” feature currently part of Sony Android tablets.
The Sony LT30p Mint is expected to sport a 4.6-inch (720 x 1280) display with on-screen buttons, 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 chipset (MSM8960), 1GB RAM, 13MP camera capable of 1080p video recording, 720p front facing camera, 16GB of internal memory, memory card support, MHL output, NFC and feature an arc design with a sealed battery.
