Expected to be formally announced later today, a leak of the Sony Ericsson XPERIA Arc has hit the internet this morning with images and a video showing off some really impressive looking industrial design in its hardware. Formerly known as the Anzu, the Arc picks up where the X10 left off with a 4.2″, 854×480 display, 1GHz Snapdragon processor, 16GB SD card preloaded, HDMI port, 1500mAh battery, 8MP camera and Android 2.3 with what we expect to be the latest version of SE’s Timescape interface running the show. Oh did we mention its 8.7mm at is thinnest? Hopefully SE has ironed out the issues with its software and updates that have plagued the XPERIA line as this definitely looks like something we would carry in our pocket if it worked well. Check out some images below and take a look at the video highlighting that sexy hardware and let us know what you think in the comments!
Sony Ericsson’s Anzu has apparently grown up and become the Sony Ericsson XPERIA Arc, according to the latest leaks, with the super-slim Android 2.3 Gingerbread smartphone expected to make its official debut at CES 2011 this week. According to Gagadget, the XPERIA Arc measures 125 x 63 x 9 mm – and 8.7 mm at its thinnest point – and has a 4.2-inch 854 x 480 multitouch display with mineral glass.
There’s also an 8-megapixel camera with Sony’s EXMOR upscaling technology, a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, microSD card – with a 16GB card pre-loaded – and an HDMI port. There’s also a 1,500 mAh battery.
Sales are expected to kick off later this quarter, with pricing in line with that of the XPERIA X10 when it first launched. Sony Ericsson is expected to announce the XPERIA Arc officially later on today.
