According to rumours, Sony is set to launch a brand new Android handset at the forthcoming IFA show in Berlin on August 29.
The so-called Sony LT30p 'Mint' is said to feature a 4.3-inch HD display, a dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor backed by 1GB of RAM, and a slim 8.9mm-thin chassis. It'll run on Android 4.0 - no Jelly Bean here, unfortunately.
All this stems from a recent hands-on with the device over on tech blog Mobile-review. Plenty of snaps were taken and impressions given, so we're inclined to belive that the phone is indeed just around the corner.
We have to say the first thing that springs to mind when looking at these preview images (at least the frontal pictures) is the original Motorola Milestone in all its quirky, angular glory. We're not entirely sure this is a good thing, but we're keeping an open mind.
Why are we mentioning the IFA show? Sony has already sent out invites for the Berlin show, and bearing in mind the company revealed four Android handsets at last year's show, there's a good chance the Mint will make a showing in 2012.
