We’ve been hearing about Sony Ericsson working on a so-called XPERIA X12 handset codenamed Anzu for quite sometime now, but we've held out on posting about it since there wasn’t really much to talk about except for some leaked images.

Fortunately, thanks to the Unofficial Sony Ericsson Blog connects, that's what we’ve got today which is why we’re finally featuring this rumored smartphone device.

Sony Ericsson XPERIA X12 Anzu

According to their source, the XPERIA X12 boasts of a generously sized 4.2-inch 854x480 resolution touchscreen, 8.1-megapixel camera with Exmor R lens, face recognition and tracking, 720p HD video recording, WiFi (b/g/n), noise suppression, HDMI, 3.5mm jack, and runs on a Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM7230 processor.

In addition to that, it reportedly also runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread.

Needless to say, this looks poised to take over the flagship position in Sony Ericsson‘s Android line-up currently held by the XPERIA X10.

No word yet on when this new XPERIA handset will be released or its pricing, but if the rumors are true, it could debut with a retail price tag of 650 Euros sans tax and subsidies.

We'll just have to wait and see if this is spot on or not.

In the meantime, if you'd like more snapshots of the XPERIA X12, you can check it out at the Unofficial XPERIA X10 blog.
