Earlier this week a leaked Sony roadmap gave some insight into their upcoming Smartphone lineup – this showed the recently announced Xperia S, plus the already leaked Nypon, Pepper, ST21i Tapioca and Kumquat. New names such as the Hayabusa and Mint were on the list, based on the the price points these are rumoured to be their new high-end devices.

A new image of a Sony device has surfaced online and is apparently the first look at the ST25i Kumquat. This seems to follow the same design philosophy as the Xperia S and Xperia Ion with the transparent notification strip. In addition, this pic shows similar traits to the Sony Ericsson marketed the Xperia arc and its little brother the Xperia ray – same general design, but scaled down specs. The Kumquat is rumoured to come with a 3.5-inch display with a resolution of 480 x 854, 1GHz dual-core processor and 5MP camera that records 720p HD videos.

No official word on when or where this will be released, but we’ll surely hear more at Mobile World Congress in a month.

      Those are only internal codenames.

    I thought all future Sony phones would be branded as such since they bought out Ericcson’s stake in Sony Ericcson.

      It seems you guys are not thinking before you type. So anyways Sony had this phone on PROTOTYPE before Sony bought Ericsson. That means most phones that are were in prototype before this stage will rename the same name UNLESS Sony changes it last minute. Sony & a few others have already said this.. I guess none of you read it?

    That’d be neat if the white bar at the bottom was the LED notification light.
