Sony reveal their latest Xperia series handset, the Sony Xperia S, at CES 2012 this week. This smartphone currently run on Android 2.3 Gingerbread and packed with high-end hardware specs.
Sony still use the same approach with Xperia S. It has simple design. The main attraction from Xperia S chasis is the transparent-LED illuminated stripe on the bottom of the display. This stripe contain three touch-sensitive buttons that control Android OS main function.
Another charming feature is the 4.3 inch HD screen that able to provide maximum 1280 x 720 pixels resolution display. We’ve did quick test by viewing some HD videos. Colors displayed pretty accurate and we’ve had an excellent playback experience.
Sony implemented a 1.5 GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8260 processors, alongside with 1 GB RAM inside Xperia S body. These hardware makes everything run fast and the touch screen provide us with great response.
There’s also a beast 12 megapixels camera on it’s back side. It is accompanied with auto focus feature and Exmor sensor. You can record your own 1080p HD video using this camera and take picture directly from standby mode by long press the specially dedicated camera button.
Sony Xperia S packed with 1,750 mAh battery. That should be more than enough to provide you with sufficient battery lifetime. GPS, Bluetooth, and WiFi connection are all supported. This handset is also support for Near Field Communication technology.
Our only disappointment from Sony Xperia S is that it will be shipped with Android 2.3 Gingerbread, instead of the latest Android 4.0. Sony confirm that OS update for this handset should be available at the first quarter of 2012.
