Sony Ericsson Nozomi image appears online

We have seen it before, but only as a screenshot. Now we have an idea of what the Sony Ericsson Nozomi really looks like, thanks to an official render of the smartphone.

The image, posted at Phone Arena, shows a slim, white smartphone, hinting at one or two previously unconfirmed details too. For a start, it looks like Nozomi is just a codename, with the page just about showing the word 'Xperia'. So expect this to slide into that range when it launches, possibly as the Arc HD. Also, the limited text shows the word 'Dual', indicating this is indeed the first dual-core Xperia smartphone. If you want more proof, the 1920x1xxx line under the camera section implies 1080p HD video capture, usually associated with dual-core handsets. I think that's case closed.

It's incredibly frustrating that the text alongside the image was cut off, otherwise we would have had the full specification well ahead of the launch. Although, to be honest, previous leaks have given us indicators to that already. A 4.3-inch 720x1280 screen, a 12-megapixel Exmor R camera, a dual-core 1.5GHz processor, 1GB of RAM and 32GB of native storage have all been previously floated. Those previous leaks also showed the phone running Android 2.3 Gingerbread, but it's very likely that we'll be in the land of Ice Cream Sandwich at launch.

March 2012 is the only date we've heard so far for Sony Ericsson's first dual-core smartphone, so we'll stick with that until we hear something else more concrete.
