Sony Ericsson Nypon to get Android 4, SE CPU

Word of an upcoming handset from Sony Ericsson running on Android 4.0 was shared on Wednesday by Recombu. Dubbed the Nypon, it also goes by the LT22i model number. The silent videos below also show Sony Ericsson making a rare break from Qualcomm's Snapdragon processor and instead use ST-Ericsson's dual-core, 1GHz NovaThor U8500.

The new design would support 1080p video recording and up to 20-megapixel cameras, although the phone camera won't get close to that resolution.

The touchscreen has a 540x960 display and HDMI video out. A production version isn't expected to look directly like the Nypon and won't sport the virgin Android 4.0 build as in the Galaxy Nexus, but instead a Sony Ericsson customized skin likely updating Timescape.
