Two new additions to the Sony Ericsson XPERIA series have been leaked on the internet and are believed to head our way in the near future. These two new smartphones to the XPERIA line are the ST18i and CK15. They are about to join the ranks of smartphones such as the Play, Neo, and Arc. Like their current brothers, these handsets are powered by the latest Android operating system Google has to offer, Gingerbread. As of now, their spec sheets are still relatively unknown. Luckily, there were a few details we were able to gather.
The ST18i is said to come with an 8 MP sensor, which is not surprising since Sony Ericsson is the maker. It also comes with a display that has a resolution of 854 x 480 pixels. Lastly, its Android Gingerbread OS will run smoothly with its 1 GHz ARM Cortex A8 processor. Judging from the initial findings, the smartphone is most likely to compete in the mid-range group.
The CK15i is said to come with a 3.2 inch touch screen display. It will come with a resolution of 240 x 400 pixels. Like other compact smartphones from the XPERIA series, it will come with a physical slide out QWERTY keyboard. Both smartphones look like they are the more compact smartphones.
Hopefully, these new additions to the XPERIA series will do well in the mid-range market. In past reports, the top of the line handsets by the smartphone manufacturer reported losses. This was due to the recent disaster that hit Japan, which is why Sony Ericsson’s supply line was affected.
As of now, there was no news when these handsets are to hit the market. Nonetheless, we’re hoping they arrive soon. Currently, there is an influx of high-end smartphones. For a change, these mid-range handsets will be a breath of fresh air.
