Sony Ericsson unveiled its new X10 flagship phone on Tuesday, its first to run on Google's Android operating system, but plans to start to sell it only next year. Loss-making Sony Ericsson, the world's fourth largest handset maker, has suffered since 2008 from a lack of attractive high-end cellphone models in its offering, and saw overall sales shrinking 45 percent from a year ago in the last quarter.

The X10 will have a 4.0 inches wide capacitive touch screen, it uses Qualcomm's Snapdragon processor, and it comes with 8.1 megapixel camera. (Reporting by Tarmo Virki; editing by Simon Jessop)
