Sony Xperia S Revealed
We’ve been wondering when Sony will decide to ditch the Sony Ericsson badging from its phones, and it looks like the time has come. From now on the company’s phones will wear a Sony badge, and the first one in the line has just been presented. Meet Sony Xperia S, the device that has been known as ‘Nozomi’ from numerous leaks. This is a new flagship device for Sony, and as you read on you’ll see it has very high chances to become one of the best smartphones on the market.
The first thing you notice is the design, which is radically different to the current models and looks much slicker and more modern. In fact, Xperia S may just be one of the most stylish smartphones to hit the market in the nearest future, especially the black-coloured version. Behind the edgy, minimalistic body lies some of the best hardware we’ve ever seen. Powering Xperia S is a dual-core chip clocked at 1.5 Ghz. The phone comes with 32 gigs of internal memory, which is essential for storing all the photos and 1080p videos you’ll shoot with the 12-megapixel camera, which takes about 1.5 seconds load from standby. Xperia S is equipped with a 4.3-inch Reality Display with an amazing resolution of 1280×720 pixels and Mobile Bravia technology.
The phone is PlayStation Certified, which means it’s been specially optimized for games. It comes with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, DLNA and Near Field Communication. Thanks to the HDMI port you can easily hook up the phone with a HDTV or monitor, while the 1750 mAh battery will ensure an acceptable stand-by time. Xperia S will ship with Android 2.3 Gingerbread, but Sony promised to deliver Ice Cream Sandwich later this year. Not much can compare to the phone in terms of specs, at least until other manufacturers release new models. A nice way to celebrate the passing of the Ericsson badge.
