The predecessor to the thin-as-ever Xperia Arc and potentially Sony Ericsson’s first dual-core smartphone has taken its first few glamour shots, which appeared today on Chinese Forums. It’s being called the Sony Ericsson Xperia Duo, which is quite possibly a reference to the dual-core processing power packed under the hood.
We don’t have a lot of details to work with, although from the picture we can see that the Duo will have the same triple-button hardware on the front that we usually see on Xperia-branded phones, along with a few familiar widgets.
We assume we’ll also find an 8-megapixel camera on the back of the handset, as is the norm when it comes to Sony Ericsson smartphones. The discussion thread made mention of a lack of flash on the Duo’s camera, but we won’t know for sure until SE offers up some official specs.
