Sony Ericsson's dual-core 'Nozomi' leaked

We've been waiting to see Sony Ericsson's dual-core smartphone for quite a while now (the company has only released single-core handsets this year).

While our sister site CNET Australia talked about its supposed specs and had an image from what we are guessing to be a brochure, a kind soul in Hong Kong has leaked a picture of the handset.

The Nozomi (or Xperia Cloud) is supposed to have a dual-core 1.5GHz processor and a 720p HD resolution display as well as a 12-megapixel camera. There seem to be conflicting rumors on whether the handset will run Gingerbread (Android 2.3) or Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0) at launch, though we hope it will be the latter.

It's likely the smartphone will either be announced at the upcoming CES 2012 in January, or at February's Mobile World Congress 2012 in Barcelona.
