An unofficial Sony Ericsson blog site has apparently leaked information (right down to specific details and specs) and pictures of what it claims is the upcoming flagship Cyber-shot phone, the C905.

According to the article, the C905 slider (codenamed Shiho) will sport an 8.1-megapixel camera with both the Xenon and LED flashes. It will also come with imaging features such as autofocus, face recognition, image/video stabiliser, BestPic and red-eye reduction, as well as a new feature named Smart Contrast.

Connectivity-wise, the C905 is said to be specced out with almost everything you can find in phones today, from Bluetooth and USB to Wi-Fi and 3G/HSDPA. It also has built-in GPS and A-GPS for geotagging photos, and an integrated accelerometer for automatic screen orientation. The primary display is a 2.4-inch QVGA LCD with a scratch-resistant mineral glass material. A TV-out cable ITC-60, which allows viewing of photos from the C905 on an external TV screen, will be introduced at the same time. The new Cyber-shot phone will apparently come in Copper Gold, Ice Silver or Night Black.

It is rumoured that the C905 will be announced on June 17, which is the day of the international ICT and telecommunications tradeshow CommunicAsia in Singapore. Coincidentally, Sony Ericsson is also having a launch event in the Republic on the same day, so we'll find out soon enough if the rumours are true. Or if the purported launch date of early Q4 2008 holds any water.
