This just in from the IFA 2011! Sony just revealed a refresh of their highly successful Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc. Dubbed as the Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S, this new model packs a 1.4GHz QUalcomm MSM8255 processor giving it extra muscle which officially bumps up the Xperia into the major leagues (in tech specs anyway). The 8.1 megapixel camera (Exmor R sensor) also boasts of a new feature called the “3D sweep panorama”. It’s amazing how quickly technology advances these days. It’s hard to imagine we’d have slim and small phones like the Xperia Arc S that can do 3D panoramic shots right? During the reveal Sony also said that due to the hardware upgrades the camera will start up 20% faster. Web browsing will also be 25% faster.
The Xperia Arc S will also have access to Sony Entertainment Music and Video Unlimited. I’m not sure if this will be available in the Philippines. Will be shooting out an e-mail to the PR Group handling Sony Ericsson here in the Philippines for clarification.
The Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S will still have the 4.2-inch (854×480 pixel) Reality Display, HDMI, and Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS.

Release date is October. Not sure when exactly in the Philippines. Hopefully still in Q4.:)
