Early last week Sony Ericsson announced the new Xperia Arc S which will be the successor to the original Arc (obviously) and now we have some official pricing and a release date. The Arc S is a beautifully thin SE Android smartphone and we should now see it hit the streets in the UK and other markets near the end of September.
The Xperia Arc S will be Sony’s new flagship offering and comes with some impressive specs. The Arc S will feature a 4.2″ LED screen with Sony’s “Reality Display” and Bravia Engine technology. Boosted with a 1.4 Ghz Snapdragon processor, 8.1 MP camera as well as what Sony is calling 3D and 2D sweep panorama photography. The processor while still single-core is cranked to 1.4 Ghz vs the 1.0 on the previous model.
According to Clove Blog the SE Xperia Arc S will start shipping on September 26th and will come in both a white and midnight blue color option. The Arc S will come with Android 2.3 Gingerbread as well and should hit the market for around £350 or $560 US dollars. For now this is a UK launch but should hit other regions shortly.
