PlayStation Phone leak details specs, PS Pocket software

9:40 AM on 01.07.2011 // Nick Chester

It's increasingly looking like Sony Ericsson's Android-powered "PlayStation Phone" is legit, despite the firm not revealing the device at this week's Consumer Electronics Show. Why bother, though, when random folks from China can leak details for you?

The latest comes from Chinese website IT169, which got its hands on the device, confirming a ton of details about the phone, its internal hardware, and a mysterious "PlayStation Pocket" software launcher.

Branded as part of Sony Ericsson's "Xperia" series, the device is powered by a Qualcomm Adreno 205 GPU, along with a 1GHZ Snapdragon processor. Tech nerds will want to know that its being benchmarked at an already impressive 59.1fps, which could improve as hardware and software is finalized.

Other key notes about the alleged hardware:

  • 1,5000mAh battery
  • 854 x 480 resolution on a 4-inch LCD
  • 5 megapixel autofocus camera, LED flash
  • 512MB RAM, 512MB ROM
  • microSD slot
  • SIM slot
  • micro-USB
  • A second microphone for active noise cancellation

These new leaks also confirm "PlayStation Pocket" software, although it's unclear what the application will be used for. The easy conclusion to jump to would be games, but what kind of games? PlayStation Portable titles, PSP Minis, or a completely new line-up of software? Given the system's specs, it seems it should be able to play current PSP titles with ease, although the lack of an analog nub could cause compatibility issues. 



As details on this "PlayStation Phone" come to light, is it looking like something that would make you ditch your current mobile device?
