Sony Ericsson C905 Leaked

Sony Ericsson is nearing the launch of a new cameraphone that will sit at the top of its Cyber-shot line, according to a new leak by SE-NSE. Codenamed the "Shiho," the C905 will not only have a sharper 8.1-megapixel camera sensor but also a brighter xenon flash and several image quality features that aren't present in earlier phones, including a rare image stabilization feature as well as smart contrast adjustment; video also receives the same treatment. A GPS receiver with data assist support will both help with navigation as well as let users geotag their photos.

The slider phone will also compete with recent software updates for Nokia's Nseries phones and add media sharing through built-in Wi-Fi; any device on a local network that supports the Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) standard can share media with the C905, turning the Sony Ericsson device into a media server. Talk time is reportedly rated at 9 hours for normal GSM and 4 hours when the phone has to use 3G for calls.

Nearly all launch details have reportedly been made public with the leak, which would have the phone appear in early fall bundled with a 2GB Memory Stick Micro and shipping in black, gold, and silver versions. The phone is expected to reach North America with full HSDPA-based 3G data (likely in a C905a version) as well as two versions for other areas; history would suggest a C905i for most carriers and a C905c for Chinese users.
