The split-up of Sony and Ericsson has left Sony to carry the Xperia line on its own. First up on the podium is the Sony Xperia S (formerly referred to as Nozomi).

Before this Sony-Ericsson did not have any dual-core processor in its handset line-up. The Sony Xperia S will get a dual-core 1.5GHz chip just to impress.

The Sony Xperia S will also be Playstation certified, just like the SE Xperia Play. Sony also announced an Xperia Ion but that’s in partnership with AT&T and sports an LTE chip and bigger 4.6-inch screen. The Xperia S is expected to be released by 2nd quarter of 2012.

Nice one Sony.. taob lahat ng phone manufacturers nung ni Launched ang Xperia S at Xperia Ion paano kase lahat ng phones ng samsung, htc etc. magkakamukha o kamukha ng 2011 series nila. Unlike Sony Xperia 2012 Design and specs is indeed different from Xperia 2011. This is my next phone sana kapareho lang ng Xperia Arc S ang price kapag naging available na to sa pinas.

the phone I’ve been dreaming of all along. and now from one of my fave manufacturers. the specs are the highest one can get AON, just adding a xenon flash will make it perfect. but then again it might affect the battery consumption, considering android itself consumes power a lot by nature.

I miss the SE branding though. I kinda hate the very technical appeal of SONY logo.

Sir Yuga, just to correct, Sony did not split up with Ericsson. Sony bought out the remaining stake of Ericsson at their joint venture, hence, future products will carry the company name Sony.

On topic: The phone looks lovely!

Also called Sony Ericsson Xperia Nozomi or Sony Ericsson Arc HD, I guess Yuga did not research very well about this unit’s other name. By the time they release this unit, Apple Iphone 5 will arrived this 2012. So better save now your hard earned money for a brandnew cellphone either Sony or Apple. You decide.

Why would yuga research about its RUMORED names??? When Sony itself has officially stated its name as Xperia S. I really don’t see the point.

IMHO, maganda sana, 12MP camera, HD video-capture, superb multimedia/gaming capabilities pero no expansion slot?not gorilla glass yung display ata.di ma-remove yung battery. and I think that grey band at the bottom looks ridiculous and will often be mistaken as buttons. I’ll pass.

The transparent area houses the antenna. Please do a research first before commenting that the part is ridiculous. Talk about innovation.

FYI, I knew that that gray translucent/see-through band has something to do with the antenna. So yes, I did my homework before making that comment. I was talking about the ‘design’ and not the it’s ‘function’. It kinda ruins the phone’s aesthetics. Like a rubber band on a sexy phone that I want to remove. If you’re OK with that, errr, fine.Each his own. But, you’re the one who should do a little research over a comment first before trying to be smart.

I’m just wondering why they always put S in every phones name, is that how they imitate iphone, from design to name??? :D

I knew it, people didn’t realize things till apple does it. Now, the concept of adding the letter S to a product’s name suddenly becomes novel and innovative.

Parang yung features nito ang rumored features ng iPhone 5, except of course sa OS pero the camera, screen size, LTE, and NFC, yan ang mga rumored features of iPhone 5.
