Sony Ericsson Xperia X12 breaks cover

The next handset in Sony Ericsson's Xperia range has been outed online, going by the name of the Sony Ericsson Anzu, but likely to be the Sony Ericsson Xperia X12.

According to TechRadar, the handset has been put through its paces by a Russian reviewer, courtest of a preview unit. He discovered an Android handset as expected, but only Android 2.1, although it's likely to launch with Android 2.2 early in 2011, with an Android Gingerbread (2.3) upgrade to follow.

Features include a large 4.3-inch LCD display, an 800MHz Qualcomm MSM7230 processor and a 12-megapixel camera, the latter able to record 720p video. Aside from report of the Qualcomm chipset being 'nippy', that's pretty much all we have.

But it doesn't look like we'll have long to wait before the official launch, so keep an eye out for that, along with some official shots and the full feature breakdown.
