Sony Ericsson Arc HD Details – Has 720p Screen and 1080p Video Recording

Remember when we told you about that one rumor? You know, the flagship Sony Ericsson phone packing a 1.5GHz dual-core punch rumor? Well it looks like we have some more details about the device. GSMArena is reporting they received a tip on information for the device. The phone— referred to as the SE Arc HD– is said to come with a 1280 x 720 (720p) screen and support full HD video recording. If you remember from Google’s announcement for the Galaxy Nexus, you’ll remember the Galaxy Nexus runs Ice Cream Sandwich with a native 720p resolution. If you put the pieces together, you can conclude (albeit prematurely) this new SE flagship will also carry Android 4.0. In addition, the phone will come with a noteworthy feature where users will have the ability to capture full resolution shots while recording video. Yes you read that correctly, there is the option to simultaneously take full resolution photos while capturing full 1080p videos! Sounds like SE is ready to take full advantage of ICS considering the sweet treat will have optimized camera settings and hardware acceleration.

We expect to see Sony make a formal announcement of this device in the coming weeks, especially with more and more information leaking out. We’ll certainly keep our eyes and ears open for more leaks.
