Handset maker Sony Ericsson will launch its first dual-core mobile phone code-named Xperia Duo in September this year. The phone will have a 4.5 inch screen and a dual core mobile processor according to The Mobile Indian.
This 4.5 inch screen touchscreen in Xperia Duo could have 960x540 pixel qHD resolution which would be similar to the resolution in the recently launched Droid 3 mobile phone from Motorola. The device will have a 1.4GHz dual core processor (as of now there is no mention about the manufacturing company, but Qualcomm is a good bet).

The mobile phone will run on the Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) operating system but hopefully the OS will update with the launch of the next version of Android. The device will be integrated with Bravia Mobile Engine technology from Sony Ericsson and could have an amazing 1.5GB of RAM (most of the current devices have only 1GB of RAM).
Xperia Duo will have a 12 megapixels camera with Exmor R CMOS imaging sensor and LED flash. The camera should also be able to record 1080p full high definition video since that is the on-going trend in the latest mobile phones. It will also have a 2500mAh battery which should provide the user with an entire day worth of battery life.
The price and exact launch date are not available as of now, but we will update you as soon as they are announced by the company. However, the big question is whether the large size of the smartphone will actually appeal to the consumers.
Recently, Sony Ericsson launched its first update for the users of Xperia Play and Xperia Arc smartphones (they were upgraded to Android Gingerbread version 2.3.3). The company also unveiled their latest Android offerings, Xperia Ray and Xperia Active at the CommunicAsia 2011 in Singapore.
