Xperia Super Phone Appears with HD screen, 13mp camera and LTE

Sony may soon have a new super phone in the US market to rival the Samsung Galaxy Nexus and the HTC Rezound. The new phone, which comes some very hearty specifications, looks to be introduced on AT&T’s network early next year, with a possible announcement date during the Consumer Electronics Show in January or the Mobile World Congress in February.

The phone, which is only known by its LT28AT model name, includes support for LTE networks as well as HSPA and TD-SCDMA for Chinese markets. It’s dominated by a 4.55 inch ‘Reality Display’ running at 1280 x 720 pixels, making it quite close to the Galaxy Nexus and iPhone 4S in pixel density. It also includes a dual core processor running at 1.5 GHz, and will probably complement that with at least a full GB of RAM. All fairly standard stuff for this new breed of super phone coming next year, but then you get something interesting.

The first is the camera, which is 13 megapixels. That’s the highest I’ve yet seen on a 720p phone for the US market (Motorola has a few 720p display phones at 13 megapixels as well, but they’re for the Chinese market), and it also comes with a front camera capable of 720p video capture. There’s also LED flash (a given these days) and a back-illuminated sensor. To further aid video capture from both cameras as well as call quality, there are two microphones for advanced noise suppression.

The second big feature is its wireless support – this new phone will support 5 GHz wireless N networks as well as the more standard 2.4 GHz, which could make a big difference for large file transfers and streaming media. (Sadly, the gigabit-speed wireless 802.11ac isn’t supported.) There’s also Bluetooth 2.1.

Given Sony’s impressive track record on the hardware side of things and the inevitable Ice Cream Sandwich support, this could be one of the best looking and fully featured super phones of 2012. It also should do well as a camera phone with that impressive megapixel count; you can have a look at some (compressed) photographs taken with the camera found via PicasaWeb. All in all, it’s quite a beastly smartphone that should assure a warm welcome for Sony as they target the American market.
