The upcoming Sony Xperia U, sporting model number ST25i and Kumquat codename, has once again shown up on the web in photos. This time, it's compared to the Xperia S and is much smaller than the already known model, which gets a 4.3-inch screen. The 3.5-inch Xperia U could get a user-removable battery, unlike the S.
The lid has been lifted on what looks like most of Sonyís smartphone roadmap for 2012. A list of model codenames has leaked out of a Sony sales report for the Indian market. However, of the three codenames that have previously been spotted (Kumquat, Nypon, Pepper), and which appear set for an April release, another eight have not yet been sighted until now.
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.
