Sony Ericsson to unveil Xperia X2 tomorrow?

We've already seen some leaked photos of the new Xperia X2, and now web whisperings are suggesting that Sony Ericsson may well unveil the new handset

An invitation doing the rounds is asking guests to "empower the future" at an event on 17 June in Singapore, promising to take them on a tour where "mystery, magic and entertainment fuse seamlessly with cutting-edge technology".

Although there is no mention of what will be announced, Electronista has had wind that the event will indeed be linked to the X2, as well as a new Bluetooth headset.

The emphasis on entertainment in the invite does perhaps question the likelihood of this claim, but we've not got much longer to wait to find out.

The X2 is rumoured to pack a faster processor than the X1, plus a 3.5-inch OLED touchscreen, 8.1 megapixel camera with autofocus, and slide out QWERTY keyboard.

We'll be keeping you updated, but in the meantime be sure to check out our first look hands on videos with Sony Ericsson's most recent unveilings – the Satio, Aino and Yari.
