Sony Ericsson’s next phone-bomb is set to go off. Of course, the Xperia Arc HD (a.k.a. Nozomi) party will not be held in the US. Despite this disheartening news, a new photo of the phone emerged today along with news that it is being tested by carriers in the land of the Forbidden City. Some subtle changes from previous pictures can be identified to the external design of the device in addition to changes to the Xperia UI.
The 1.5GHz dual-core smartphone will ship with 1GB of RAM, a 4.3-inch 720p display, and a 12MP camera. All signs point to the device shipping with Gingerbread, but with Ice Cream Sandwich’s impending launch, the phone will most assuredly be at the top of the list of Sony phones to get the update.
