Sony rolls out sleek Xperia S with 720p screen

Written by Fudzilla staff



CES 2012: 12MP camera, 32GB storage, Bravia engine


Sony has officially announced its first Sony branded phone in a decade. The outfit bought out Ericsson and dropped the Sony Ericsson brand late last year, and now it’s on track to invade the Android smartphone in style.

The Sony Experia S is the first smartphone from Sony’s NXT, or next generation series. Looking at the spec, the new Experia lives up to the next generation promise. It features a 4.3-inch 1280x720 screen, 12-megapixel camera and 32GB of internal storage. Performance should not be an issue, as it boasts a 1.5GHz processor and 1GB of memory, with LTE to boot. In addition, the phone has PlayStation certification and boasts Sony’s Bravia Engine for some additional image quality.

Sony knows a thing or two about industrial design and we believe the new Experia is one of the best looking Android phones on the market today, if not the best. The uncluttered design looks great in white or black, and the phone looks very sleek and thin. The only downside is the OS. Yes, it’s Gingerbread, but Sony claims it will offer an ICS update shortly.

Looks neat.

12MP camera is cool too.

Do we have any details on the actually sensor and optics? Unless they are using decent hardware 8mp will look much better than 12pm.

I don't understand why someone like Sony or Samsung doesn't just put some phone electronics in a camera rather than a camera in a phone. I did see that massive thing Samsung made with a 3x optical zoom but it didn't get released outside of Korea and was too big. It doesn't have to have optical zoom but if it does it needs to be internal.

Nice phone. Shame it's a Sony, as that means it will be 2x more expensive than it's worth and corporations like that just give me diarrhoea. Nice phone, yeah. Sleek. I can also bet it will be full of proprietary connectors and file formats, too. God forbid buying a USB cable at the normal store... it has to be a Sony branded cable and 2x more expensive. What a load of cr..

But nice phone. :)

You forgot to mention no microSD, some weird memory stick incarnation!
