SONY Ericsson XPERIA HD leaked images and benchmark scores

SONY-Ericsson_XPERIA_HD

The SONY Ericsson XPERIA HD is expected to make its official debut next Monday at CES, but that doesn’t mean we have to wait until then to see some detailed hands-on images and benchmark scores for the new handset. ITProPortal has been able to secure more than a dozen images of the upcoming SONY Ericsson XPERIA HD along with a few more details about the device.

According to the report, the XPERIA HD features a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8660 chip which is clocked at 1.5 GHz, 1GB of RAM, a 4.3-inchHD 720×1280 resolution display, 12 megapixel camera (most likely featuring SONY’s Exmore R sensor), 8GB of internal storage and a microSIM card slot. Unlike previous XPERIA devices, the XPERIA HD does not come with a microSD card slot, meaning consumers will most likely have the option to purchase the phone with 8, 16, or 32 GB of internal storage.

Hardware performance on the XPERIA HD was benchmarked with Quadrant standard. We know it’s not the best benchmark app on the market (especially for devices powered by dual-core processors), but it was nice to the phone post a score of 2219 which is in line with was we saw from the HTC EVO 3D which sports the same MSM8660 chip.

The SONY Ericsson XPERIA HD is currently running on Android 2.3.7 but we suspect SONY Ericsson could have Android 4.0 up and running on the device by the time it hits store shelves. We know most of you aren’t going to be that impressed with the specs or the fact that the phone is currently running on Gingerbread, but SONY Ericsson has proven that they are a serious contender in the Android space and you simply can’t deny that their handsets have a touch of class that sets them apart from the competition.

    Wow, that’s about as square as they come! I don’t think I’m a fan of the silver button bar thing, but aside from that, it’s actually a nice looking device! :-)

    • http://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/JO7b1Ck47aQEDj18KITtDo-UqYBOLeP6nzuQmVQDO8o?feat=directlink Gomez

      its kind of wasted space for now. Hopefully we see a lot more ICS devices next week.

    • AppleFUD

      I really like the design of this device–the only one I think looks nearly as good as Nokia’s lumia 800 (I would get that if it had stock Android). Now if this was the design Google had for the Nexus with no hardware buttons (removing the glow strip). . . now that would have been a stellar design.

    • http://youtube.com/user/jawckamoe Marcus

      I actually thought the device was slit horizontally because it blended in with the table. Lol. But overall I think it looks cool.

    • thekaz

      is the button bar silver, or clear? It seems clear to me. If so, that is the one thing I wouldn’t like about this phone…

      • iamXiV92a

        Yes the bar is clear – I actually kind of like it, definitely a unique feature!

      • lokidokie

        It does look clear. Guess it comes down to personal opinion in the end, and my personal opinion is that it looks dumb!

  • damambt

    Looks very promising. I like what sony is doing so far, and cant wait to see more.

  • http://muddypa.ws/blog nportelli

    Love the high resolution.

  • Muhammad

    apart from aesthetics, perhaps an upgraded screen resolution and pixel density, and an apparently superior camera, what really separates this phone from the recent htc/samsung dual core gingerbread phones that have been released in the past 6 months?

    the sensation, evo, skyrocket, vivid, galaxy s2 (US version) all have similar processors and other specs and have been on the market for anywhere from 2-8 months.

    although this phone will be released in 2012, it seems appropriate to place it in the category of late 2011 dual core gingerbread phones as it does not break from the past in any significant way.

    • http://htcsource.com Nick Gray

      Usually we don’t see any real next-generation phones unveiled until Mobile World Congress in February. It’s not the manufacturer’s fault since what they unveil at CES was in the works before the chip makers had their next-generation chips available.

  • Chuck Mullen

    Not bad, but again, its not the standard breaker.

    But it is the STANDARD of the times. Hmmm… I think its a PASS. For me at least… still looking for the JUST RIGHT FIT…

  • Oskar Wismierski

    Looking nice

  • YMS123

    I hope this lack of micro sd slot doesn’t become standard..

    • taketheleap

      Agreed. That’s why I’m not buying the Nexus: no expandable card slot.

      It’s to the point now where when I look at specs, the card slot or lack thereof is the first thing I look for.

      • iamXiV92a

        That and NFC capability. Sure for some it’s not a deal breaker because they may never use it, but I like to be prepared.

        I’d rather have it and not need it, than need/want it and not have it – isn’t that how the adage goes?

  • T1392

    Will anyone accept or even attempt to continue with the buttonless phone type?

  • T1392

    I know its GB but we expect ics already being its 2012.

  • Ironzey Lewis

    Sony makes phones?!?!

    I’m pretty meh about this. If it’s not running ICS, I’m not interested.

  • zyphbear

    This is a pretty nice design, though it does remind me of some of the Moto Droids.

  • smeghead68

    that sure is square. No sure about it’s looks at the moment.

  • nivekkev

    Yeah, a little bit to square for me. Any word on where it’s heading or did I miss that?

  • Richard Yarrell

    Sony=Nope, Lg=Nope..When will they get it…..NO MORE GINGERBREAD PHONES. The Galaxy Nexus will remain extremely relevant for the next 8months. Nothing trumps the Galaxy Nexus not even quadcore rumored devices. .

    • squiddy20

      1. ICS source code was released not even a month ago, do you really think manufacturers are just going to drop the phones they’re currently developing (with Gingerbread or even Froyo) for ICS? If so, you have absolutely no clue about Android development and the process that is required from the time a phone is thought up until it’s in customers’ hands. It takes many many months. Go back to school Dick.
      2. “The Galaxy Nexus will remain extremely relevant for the next 8months” Considering you’ve said the same thing about the Evo 3D, even going so far as to say it would be “Sprint’s flagship device well into 2012″, I’m fairly certain you are again, wrong. The original Nexus S was only “relevant” for a few months and then something better spec wise came along and that was the big thing. Sprint’s Nexus S 4G came along and again, within a few months most of the hype about it was over. You really have no clue what you’re talking about.

  • Nathan D.

    I’ll consider getting this phone if it come out soon.

  • cobaltleo

    its a nice phone but imo the Xperia Arc has the best aesthetics of all the sony phones in the last 2 years. all in all though coming off a Xperia X10 this would be a awesome upgrade for me.

  • Joshua

    I agree with you that nothing on this phone seems new EXCEPT the camera censor. I don’t think any of you realize how amazing this camera censor is for Sony. They are blowing away the competition and this censor on the camera alone makes me interested. So yes, it is MUCH different than the competition.

  • scores87

    If this is the arc succesor I am highly dissapointed, what happened to the sexy “arc” shape

  • eewho

    what better way to benchmark a dual core phone…with a software that doesn’t support dual core…FAIL

  • dan

    Why would you run a benchmark you know doesn’t correctly test CPU in first place really whats
    I mean you took the time in “reviewing this phone” you could take 2 mins out of your time and properly test with an up to date FREE benchmark

    benchmark 101 you don’t use a benchmark that isnt going to properly test your system just makes you look like an idiot

    And lol at his comment nice to see it scores the same as the evo3d that has the same CPU

  • XPERIA IS GOD

    I want Cyber-Shot for camera and Walkman for mp3 player are in Xperia, Sony should put these bands in their smartphone

  • JAG

    Ugliest thing I’ve ever seen in my life!

    This is really a piece of brick!!
