Mobile Review has published a trove of information on what it says will be Sony's next flagship device: the Sony LT30p Mint, apparently the same phone as the LT30p that was revealed earlier this month. The leaked phone has a 4.3-inch screen and the same 1280 x 720 resolution as the Xperia S, with a dual-core 1.5GHz processor and 13-megapixel rear camera. Unlike the Xperia S, it's supposed to ship with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and will replace the hardware menu keys with touchscreen ones. It's also apparently got some minor software changes.

The phone is said to be using the same Qualcomm S4 Snapdragon processor as the HTC One X, and it comes with 1GB of RAM, though the fact that it's a prototype means it's still lagging in speed. We don't have exact dimensions, but Mobile Review says it's thinner and lighter than the Xperia S based on a pretty lengthy hands-on. The LT30p is tentatively hinted at for the third quarter of this year.
