Rumors had been floating around about the Hikaru a while back and the project was thought to be scrapped. It looks like Sony Ericsson broke out the defibrillators because this 8 megapixel gem has a pulse once again. Even though we’ve already hit the 8 megapixel mark, there’s definitely always room for another high-end shooter. At this point, it almost seems like SE can do no wrong – what with the Xperia and Walkman phones out on the loose. We’re not quite sure what category this phone will be in but you know the camera will likely be hawt as most SE camera phones are, and it will be packing at least 8 GB of internal storage. The slider might be a QWERTY or alphanumeric, but one would image it would be the former since it’s coming standard on so many phones these days. So far, details and images are limited (the mockup there was done by Unwired View) but you know we’ll be on it like no one else.
