Rumor: Sony Ericsson’s Nozomi to be the next global flagship, SK19i cancelled
Unfortunately for those of you looking forward to its release, the SK19i has apparently been cancelled, according to information received by Xperia Blog.
This, alongside what follows, needs to be assigned rumor status for now, although the same tipster did provide accurate information in the past. The SK19i was being developed for AT&T in the US and was going to sit in Sony Ericsson’s lineup in between the Xperia Mini Pro and the Xperia Pro.
Sony Ericsson’s new international flagship smartphone may be the Nozomi, which was first thought to be meant solely for the Japanese market. This superphone will come with a 1.4 GHz processor (unclear at the moment whether single-core or dual-core), and a 4.3-inch 720p display. It will be launched in Japan by NTT DoCoMo as the SO-02D, and internationally its model number will be LT26i.
If this will be the flagship, we’re wondering what happened to the Xperia Duo. Or maybe the Nozomi (probably a codename, and not the name under which it will be sold) will be the single-core flagship, leaving the Duo to battle in the new dual-core world.
Only time will tell, and we’ll be here to report on whatever happens.
