Sony Ericsson unveiled its latest smartphone, the Xperia Arc S an upgraded version of the popular Xperia Arc at the IFA conference in Berlin. The super-slim device just got a few bumps in features, It’ll run on a 1.4GHz processor and will sport Sony’s Reality display powered by Sony’s mobile Bravia engine. What really makes the Reality Display special is the support of Sony’s Mobile Bravia Engine, which is meant to improve color and detail in a fashion similar to that of Bravia TVs.
The phone will also have an 8.1 megapixel camera with an Exmor R sensor that includes a “3D sweep panorama” mode, which offers the ability to take 2D (read: not stereoscopic) images and convert them into 3D. The camera start up speed and media conversion will be 25% faster.
Featuring the latest Android Gingerbread 2.3, Sony Ericsson is clearly still pushing ahead with its promise to release phones with the latest Android update – plus Facebook inside will keep the social network-lovers among us content. The new device will render web pages 20% faster than the Xperia Arc.
The Xperia Arc S will be available in five colors globally this October.
