While we've been discussing the Sony Ericsson Anzu (X12) for quite some time now, it was Eldar Murtazin's Tweets that really shed some light on the upcoming device. Now that it's stepped into the light, we get to have a look at some of the details and specs that will actually power this device. The 4.3-inch LCD display with 854 x 480 resolution will be running the same 800MHz Qualcomm MSM7230 processor that is found in the T-Mobile G2 / Desire Z. When it comes to taking pictures and video the Anzu will certainly not be lagging there. Built into to the device is a 12MP camera, which is totally capable of capturing 720p video as well.

The saddening part, at least for now? It's currently running on Android 2.1 and apparently launching in 2011 with Android 2.2. But, the good news is Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) is suggested as coming in the summer. We'd still rather see it at launch but, what can you do. You can hit the full review via the source link, let us know in the forums and in the comments what you think about the device now. [Mobile Review via Engadget]

only redeeming quality is the 12mp camera. where's the nexus s or galaxy s successor?

patrixl says:

Will the screen support multitouch this time?

Smokexz says:

Honestly? How is this real when only the dual core have the potential of 12mp?

Doesn't it have to have a search button? I generally overlook Sony phones but I'm gonna guess that the X10 also has only 3 buttons. Would explain why it takes so long for software updates. Other than that and the internal specs this phone is pretty hot looking.

Sony is officially the lame duck in the Android game now.

That review was horribly unreadable. Please Android Central, never hire that guy.

So they always have phones that look nice.. got decent specs, but this isn't launching until Q1 2011. The same time as all the Tegra 2 and other dual processor phones. As well as phones that are already on 2.3 and looking to Honeycomb, and this has 2.1 now to launch with 2.2.. I just can't get over no matter how good it looks SE seems to always be behind and after watching how long it took them to figure out 2.1.. forget it.. I will stick with HTC, and Moto...
