Let the Sony Ericsson Anzu/X12 leaks continue! Today, we've got another report from Eldar Murtazin, who originally said that the X12 was merely "nice," but not flagship material. This time, Murtazin goes into more detail on the X12, saying that his preview unit running Android 2.1 is pretty speedy, but that that may change once Sony Ericsson adds their own customizations to the OS. Sadly, it doesn't look like the X12 will pack Gingerbread when it launches in early 2011, coming instead with Android 2.2, reports Murtazin. It does appear that an update to Gingerbread is planned, though, so don't get too discouraged. Other specs for the X12 include a 4.3-inch 854x480 LCD screen, an 800MHz MSM7230 processor (just like the one found in the G2), and a 12 megapixel camera capable of capturing 720p video. Build quality for the X12 is said to be cheaper to the touch than the X10, but also thinner and lighter.
The lack of Gingerbread on the X12 is certainly disappointing, but the rest of the specs seem pretty average for a high-end Android phone as of late, not that that's a bad thing. The MSM7230 processor has proven to be pretty speedy on the G2, which recently got overclocked to a blazing 1.9GHz. A 12 megapixel cam should be nice, but we'll have to actually use the thing before getting too excited. As any camera enthusiast will tell you, it's not always all about the megapixels. It's unfortunate that we don't any clue as to which carrier the X12 will land on when it comes stateside, if it ever does, but considering that the X10 is on AT&T, it wouldn't surprise me to see the X12 land on Ma Bell's network, too.
