The Sony Xperia S seems to be having plans for expanding its availability in the UK, especially since it has hopped onto the Three network after recently coming out through the online retailer Clove. Not only does this phone mark the first release of Sony Mobile Communications, it also kicks off the company’s Xperia NXT range.
Embedded with 1GB RAM and 32GB eMMC flash memory, this handset offers an internal storage capacity of 1GB to 1.5GB. The incorporated battery should help it survive a talk time of up to 8 hours and 30 minutes or an approximate standby time of 420 hours. The device also offers music playback time of about 25 hours. Although the Xperia S currently operates on the Gingerbread OS, it is expected see an upgrade to ICS sometime in the second quarter of this year.
Sylvia Chind, head of handsets at Three comments, “With a striking display, this is an ideal smartphone for those looking for high-definition entertainment. Plus, as the only network to offer all-you-can-eat data on both Pay as you go and Pay monthly, Three customers can enjoy all of the rich content that YouTube, BBC iPlayer and Spotify have to offer without ever having to worry about data limits.”
The front panel of this device shows off a 4.3-inch scratch-resistant TFT touchscreen with an HD resolution of 1280 x 720p. On the flip side, the offering is dotted by a 12MP camera. It has been decked with functions like 16MP digital zoom, auto focus and LED flash.
