The Sony press conference at the CES 2011 just got over and the company announced its latest Xperia handset the Xperia Arc. The Arc is the successor to the Xperia X10. The handset is powered by a 1GHz Snapdragon processor and has a 4.2-inch multi-touch’ Sony Bravia powered display.
The back of the handset sports an 8.1MP camera with an Exmor R sensor and an LED flash. The handset is insanely thin at only 8.7mm. The phone also sports a mini-HDMI port which is capable of 1080p output.
The handset will have up to 512MB of internal memory along with the usual Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, DLNA, GPS, microSD card slot, microUSB port and a 3.5mm jack. The Xperia Arc will run on Android 2.3 when released. Quite surprising for a company known to load its handset with older versions of the Android OS. The phone will be powered by a 1500 mAh battery.
The Xperia Arc will be available in two colors Midnight Blue and Misty Silver. The handset will hit the stores by Q1 of 2011.
