A couple of weeks ago, I showed a friend of mine the X10 Mini and told him that it was a mini version of the X10. He thought it was too small and I made a joke about Sony Ericsson probably releasing an “X10 Medium” soon for people who think the X10 is too large and the X10 Mini is too small. Looks like I was onto something.

A new photo has been leaked on the Chinese IT168 forum, this time depicting a phone codenamed “Shakira”. It looks like something in between the X10 and the X10 Mini. The specifications will probably also be a mix – here’s to hoping for the 1 GHz Snapdragon processor and high-resolution display! Unfortunately, I somehow doubt the latter will happen. The clock widget looks pretty large compared to the one on the X10, which could mean that the resolution will be HVGA – 320 x 480 pixels.

By the way… The original photo included a watermark and lots of white space, but I decided to try Photoshop CS5’s new “Content-aware fill” feature to remove it and it worked out quite well!
