CES takes off next week, and everyone is eager to see what gadgets 2012 holds. 2011 was a great year for Android, and this year looks to be more of the same. Sony Ericsson has decided to bring a little excitement before the show starts, teasing some close up images of a new device.
Sony Ericsson has already been teasing “something big” to come during CES. As many have noticed, the teased close-up images look much like an Xperia Arc. In fact, they look nearly identical. This has us wondering whether these are place-holder images, or if the “big” product will simply be an improved Xperia Arc.
Current vairants of this device include the Xperia Arc and the Xperia Arc S, which are great devices, but definitely not up to par with the super phones coming in 2012. Specs include a 1 GHz processor (1.4 GHz for Xperia Arc S), 512 MB of RAM, 1 GB of internal storage, 8 GB micro SD card (supports cards of up to 32 GB) and an 8 MP camera.
It is important to note that the Xperia Arc devices carry Sony’s outstanding Exmor R sensor. This makes for a very impressive picture quality (as well as video – 720p@30fps), especially in low-light conditions. You can check out more details and a video demonstration here. That, along with the awesome dedicated camera button that all Xperia Arc devices carry (and it looks like this one will, as well), should make a great device for the camera-happy.
When the Xperia Arc S was released, one of the biggest differences from its predecessor was the ability to take 3D panoramic images. We certainly hope that, if this device is yet another iteration of the Xperia Arc family, the camera is taken to another level.
There you go, guys. We’ll be at CES covering all the awesome news for you, so stay tuned for more details. What do you think Sony Ericsson has prepared for us?
