Xperia Music AppWe know that Sony Ericsson plans a revamp of its Gingerbread skin for Xperia phones prior to the release of the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update. Last month we reported on the screenshot of Sony Ericsson’s new user interface. There was not too much we could infer from that single picture, but now we have a couple of more screenshots, this time reportedly from Sony Ericsson’s new Music Player.

The first picture is of the equalizer with separate controls for the different frequencies and bass. The second picture is that of the “My music” app which looks very Metro-esque (Windows Phone). One of the icons is for “SensMe channels,” a Sony technology that allows you to create a playlist based on your mood.

You can tell from the notification bar that these are Gingerbread screenshots, so it looks like Sony Ericsson may be revamping the UI and then porting this over to ICS once that update starts to roll out in late March 2012. See larger versions of the screenshots below, which incidentally are in 720 x 1280 resolution. This highlights that these pictures have probably been captured on a new dual-core Sony Ericsson handset, expected to be announced on 9 January 2012 at CES.
