Sony Ericsson "Rachel" is the XPERIA X3, Specs leaked


Oh man, Expansys. Either you’ve got someone who doesn’t know how to punch in embargo dates properly, or whoever is in charge of determining when your product pages go live likes to live on the edge. Expansys has leaked or confirmed details on more handsets than we’ll even bother to count. This time around, they’ve shined a light on Sony Ericsson’s first (and oh-so-gorgeous) Android handset, Rachel.

First of all, it looks like Rachel’s real name is XPERIA X3. Back in September, Sony Ericsson CTO said they had no plans to bring Android devices to the market. Oh, how quickly things change when you’re bleeding hundreds of millions per quarter.

Beyond the name, Expansys also unveiled almost the entirety of the handset’s specs. There’s no mention of what sort of CPU this guy’s packin’, but it does have an 800×400 4″ Touchscreen, HSDPA/HSUPA, 8 megapixel auto-focus camera with an LED flash, VGA video recording, a 3.5mm headset jack (Thank you, Sony Ericsson!), and assisted GPS. In not so many words, we want this. Full specs after the jump.
