At CES 2012, Sony (Formerly Sony Ericsson) announced two new Android phones meant only for their home market – Japan – the Xperia NX and the Xperia acro HD. Both the handsets are similar to the other two handsets announced by Sony, the Xperia S and Xperia Ion.
Both the Xperia (NX and acro) branded handsets feature a 4.6-inch LED Backlit Reality Display with mobile Bravia engine, and come with a whopping 720 (1280×720) resolution. Internally, both the handsets are powered by a 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S3 processor, an Adreno 220 GPU coupled with 1GB of RAM.
At the back of both the handsets is a 12.1MP camera with an Exmor R sensor, which is also capable of recording videos in 1080p HD resolution. There is also a front-facing camera in the front of the handsets for video calling. Sadly, the handsets run on Android 2.3 Gingerbread but will get the Ice Cream Sandwich sometime in Q2 of this year. The acro HD comes with a TV Tuner, an infrared port and NFC as well.
Other features include a micro-HDMI port, 16GB of on-board memory and an 1840mAh battery on the handsets.
The Xperia NX will be available on NTT DoCoMo’s Network beginning from February this year, while the acro HD will be available sometime in March.
