Sony Xperia MT27i "Pepper" Found in Sony Mobile China Website

Last month, we all got a taste of Sony‘s supposed leaked roadmap for 2012 that suggests the arrival of twelve devices all in all before October of this year arrives. Among the delightful dozen of devices, at least three devices were expected to be unveiled at the Mobile World Congress. These devices were to be introduced under the code names Kumquat, Nypon and Pepper. They sure are pretty interesting names.

Indeed, at the MWC 2012 a few weeks ago, two of the three made it – the Kumquat and Nypon, now officially named Xperia P and Xperia U. If you’re wondering what happened to the third musketeer, “Pepper”, it appears that the device was rather too slow and thus, delayed. Fortunately, it was not too late. We’ve just obtained a leaked image of the Sony MT27i code named “Pepper” via the official website of Sony Mobile China. And not only are we thrilled at the sight of the leaked image. Deep inside, we’re wondering if a release is closely imminent.

Of course, why not? After all, it was previously reported that all three devices will be released altogether sometime in April. It looks like we will have 3 Musketeers from Sony next month. Isn’t it nice? Judging from the leaked image, it seems that Sony’s new trademark design is well integrated into the device. Also, we noticed that it has a dedicated camera button, although no translucent bar is to be found.

With regards to the specs, the Sony “Pepper” is expected to sport a 1GHz dual-core processor, a 3.7-inch FWVGA screen with an 854 x 480 resolution, a 5 megapixel camera, NFC support and a 512 MB RAM. So far, as with the other two devices, the pricing is yet to be confirmed. Although this device is powered by a dual-core processor, there are other forthcoming competing Android devices too that are far more appealing. But we’ll never know until we will finally get our hands on one of these.
