The handset, dubbed the Sony Ericsson Walkman WT19i, was spied by Xperia Blog, and will reportedly land running Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) OS. Compare this to the W8′s Froyo OS, and it looks like we’ll be treated to a high-end alternative.
According to the Sony Ericsson spies, it’ll come rocking a 3.2-inch (320 x 480) capacitive touchscreen, which is anything like its lesser-specced brother, will arrive dressed in Sony Ericsson’s TimeScape UI. It’s also rumoured to pack 1GHz Cortex A8 processor, and a 5 megapixel rear-facing camera.
As a member of the Walkman line-up, it’ll also come equipped with all the usual music smarts. This’ll include a Sony Walkman music player, TrackID, Mega Bass, PlayNow, Karaoke functionality, a built-in FM radio with RDS and the all-new Zappin Key feature, which will give you a 4-second preview of the next song’s chorus.
There’s no word on the handset’s pricing or release date, but it’s likely to get official within the next few months. Failing that, we’ve still got the Sony Ericsson Mix Walkman to look forward to.
