Sony Mobile is rumoured to be working on a range of new smartphones that taps more intensively into facilities available from the rest of the Sony group.
Citing rumours on webforums and a tipoff, PhoneArena suggested that three new phones are under development.
The most significant of the rumours is a suggestion that the company is working on a cameraphone that would come with one of the best camera optics in the market, including a sensor size almost equal to Nokia's Pureview 808 and Carl Zeiss optics
A Walkman branded model will focus on sound quality and come with an integrated amplified chip.
Finally, a third model is being pitched allegedly as a direct iPhone challenger, although no indication of how has been revealed yet.
The phones are expected to be announced this summer, which based on Sony Mobile timelines suggests going on sale in late Q3 in time for the end of year holiday sales season.
