Eldar Murtazin continues his series of smartphone premieres, once again reviewing a handset that’s yet to be announced. No, this is not a Nokia model, especially after the conflict Eldar had with the Finnish phone maker. Known as Sony Ericsson MT15i, but actually considered the Vivaz 2 by the reviewer, this device shows very much promise.
It’s got a very good front-facing camera, a great 1500mAh battery and a 854 x 480 pixel Reality Display, based on Sony’s Bravia Engine. Under the hood we find 512MB of RAM, a 1GHz Qualcomm MSM7630 CPU with Adreno 205 handling the graphics. The shell of the phone is made of glossy plastic and moving on to the camera, we find out that an 8MP sensor will do the job, using EXMOR technology from Sony.
Touch to focus and face detection will be supported and flawless video recording with great audio capture are also mentioned by the blogger. Android 2.3 is the OS of choice on this supposed Vivaz 2, although Engadget seems to believe that this is not the follow-up to Vivaz, but rather an XPERIA model with a different branding. We’ll possibly learn more at MWC 2011 and till then you have Eldar’s full preview to read.
