Historically speaking, an increased frequency in live shots generally indicates that an official announcement isn’t far off. Sony Ericsson fans can only hope that’s the case as a new round of pics bubble up to show off the forthcoming Xperia X2 aka Vulcan lounging around with its underachieving little brother, the Xperia X1. Sure we’ve seen it before, a few times, but we haven’t yet grown tired of eying this sexy little SE number. Spec refresher:

  • 8.1 megapixel auto-focus, VGA video capture @ 30fps (MP4 HQ)
  • 3.5-inch WVGA OLED
  • GPS
  • 3.5mm audio jack
  • Accelerometer
  • Faster processor
  • 512 RAM
  • Custom Windows Mobile 6.5
  • XPERIA Panels are modified with plenty of innovative features (PS3 remote play being one of them)
  • Upgradable to Windows Mobile 7

Still no word on pricing but hopefully the disaster that was the Xperia X1 will motivate SE to price this little guy a bit lower right out the gate. Hit the jump for more shots.
