Sony Ericsson’s Xperia Arc has been announced for a while now and is representing the manufacturer in the high-end zone of Android smartphones. Just recently the Xperia Arc made its way to the FCC for a good solid once over and we’ve gotten the chance to see the first pictures of the device taken apart. The good news for anyone holding out for an upgrade maybe with AT&T that this might just come to the operator.
According to the FCC the Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc is featuring support for both HSDPA and HSUP, high speed 3G cellular connectivity. The device will be operating on the UTMS bands 2 and 5 which would be pointing towards a launch on AT&T’s network. For those of you new to the Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc here’s a quick rundown of all the devices known specifications:
- The Xperia Arc will ship with a 4.2 inch TFT display with a resolution of 480 x 854 pixels
- Powering the Sony Ericsson flagship is a 1 GHz Qualcomm MSM 8255 1 GHz processor ( the one which we can also find within the Inspire 4G )
- 512 MB of RAM and ROM with a micro SD card slot ( up to 32 GB of added storage )
- An 8.1 megapixel front facing camera with LED flash, auto focus, image stabilizer and the works and 720p HD video capture
- Android 2.3 Gingerbread right out of the box
The thing which grabbed my attention when first checking out the Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc was the very sleek and clean design lines chosen by SE. The phone measures 4.92 x 2.48 x 0.34 inches ( that’s 125 x 63 x 8.7 mm ) and weighs in at only 117 grams ( that’s 4.13 ounces ). With these specs the device is guaranteed to turn some heads and the name hasn’t been chosen at random as it does actually have a slight hint of an arc in its design.
So if you are on the lookout for a new device and maybe want to sign up with AT&T, who are by the way seriously pushing Android smartphones, this might be the device for you. At the time however there is no pricing or release date announced, but stick around and you might just find out more.1
