Announced a few weeks ago at CES as the first Sony smartphone, the Xperia S could become available before the end of this month (at least in the UK).
What you may not know about the new handset (because it wasn’t included in the press release announcing it) is that it features an anti-stain shell – this was unveiled last week by SE on Facebook.
Swiss website PocketPC.ch quotes Sony Ericsson’s Product Manager for Germany, Austria, Switzerland and the Netherlands, confirming the anti-stain shell (it’s a nano-coating actually). Another thing that’s been reportedly confirmed is the fact that the new Xperia features a fast charging mode – apparently, battery charging times can be reduced to half.
The Sony Xperia S will be launched with Android 2.3 Gingerbread (upgradeable to Android 4.0 ICS), a 4.3 inch HD display, 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 12MP rear camera with Sony Exmor mobile sensor, 1.3MP front-facing camera, and 32GB of internal memory.
