Sony Rachael, Kiki phones

Updated images have allegedly leaked for Sony Ericsson's next major smartphone, codenamed Rachael. A follow-up to the XPERIA X1, the phone is expected to use the Android 2.0 operating system, running on a Snapdragon processor. It may also have 7.2Mbps HSDPA, advanced 3D rendering capabilities, and an eight-megapixel autofocus camera. Little new is revealed in the photos, except that white may be an option, and that the back contains a slight bulge.

A video, seen below, does however demonstrate what is said to be the Rachael's overlay interface. The design uses a heavily-animated card motif, with bottom-tray icons allowing for a rapid switch between tasks like music and SMS.

Still less is known about a separate phone, the "Kiki," which appears to be a more conventional model with a smaller screen and a numberpad. Distinguishing traits may include illuminated buttons, and/or touch-sensitive operation, though neither fact can be confirmed at present.
