Sony Xperia S coming officially on April 10; free goodies for early birds

The Sony Xperia S will be coming to Indian shores, soon, as per Sony’s official Indian Facebook page. While the other devices haven’t been disclosed as of now, there are chances that we might get to see the Xperia P and U as well and that could be pretty good news for Indian users.

For those of you’ll who have forgotten, we’ll remind you what the Xperia S boasts of:

  • Android Gingerbread (Upgradeable to ICS)
  • 4.3-inch HD display with a resolution of 1280 x 720
  • 1.5GHz dual-core processor with a MSM8260 chipset, 1GB RAM
  • 12 megapixel camera with Sony Exmor R sensor and 1080p video recording capabilities
  • 1.3 megapixel front camera with 720p@30 fps
  • 32GB internal memory
  • HDMI port
  • Weighs 144g

 

We loved the Xperia S' brilliant 720p screen in a 4.3-inch screen size, making it higher than the Retina display of the iPhone 4. It has GLONASS navigation system as well. The camera, although might not be impressive for indoor shooting, is absolutely brilliant for outdoor shots. They've modified the interface slightly - the music player gets a new look, the apps and the Timescape UI is smooth and easy to use. What's important to note, however is the fact that the battery life isn't really that impressive. It lasted at maximum, a day, under heavy usage. The build and the finish is extremely brilliant, though and Sony's latest flagship is definitely a marked improvement over their previous Xperia phones.
