3.2MP Sony Ericsson Mobile Leaked

Expect this in a store near you soon...

With the end of 3GSM for another year I was getting hopeful of not having to use the words ‘mobile phone’ for quite a while, still it is worth it for this beauty.


In a monster leakage of the kind that suggests Sony Ericsson did it ”on purpose”, we can bring you photos and details of its latest upcoming stunner. The K800i is made squarely for the photography nut boasting a whopping 3.2 megapixel camera with autofocus and there is a beautiful QVGA screen with 262K colours to really do justice to your snaps.

With this megapixel rating internal memory is a little disappointing at just 64MB but it can – and will obviously need to be – expanded via the Memory Stick Micro slot. We also know that the K800i will have USB2.0 connectivity and Bluetooth but size and weight details remain elusive. Judging by the photos this doesn’t look to be a bulky phone but we’ll reserve judgement until we know a little more.

2006 looks to be the year of 3.2 megapixels, now we just hope it is also the year of fluid 3G, unlimited data packages, and sub 100g smartphones. Fingers crossed, it’s looking that way…
