A new update for Sony Ericsson's Xperia Arc is beginning to appear, according to a new posting on the manufacturer's support site. While it doesn't seem to update the core OS past Android 2.3.3, it does bring some cool new features, including:
xLoud – boosts your music when played through the speaker
Stereo recording – shoot video with high-quality stereo sound
Digital home – enjoy entertainment content stored in your phone on DLNA certified media devices
New themes and Landscape mode for your home screen
The update is said to be working for Xperia Arc and Play handsets, but not everyone is seeing the download become available yet. Arc and Play users should check for updates on the phone or in the PC Companion program in the days ahead.
The update is expected to come preinstalled on the soon to be released Xperia Ray, which is due out in Europe sometime before the end of the quarter.
