The phone assumes the Xperia branding but has so far been codenamed Rachael internally. Specs are minimal at the moment, but Mobil is reporting it'll come complete with a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 8 megapixel camera, 7.2Mbps HSDPA and 3D graphics capabilities.
There will also be that all important 3.5mm jack to keep music fans happy as well and Mobil reckons it'll have a sizeable screen no less than 4-inches. Wowsers.
Finally, the skinny shell of Rachael would suggest the handset will be full touchscreen with no QWERTY keyboard unlike the Xperia X1.
