Sony Unveils Xperia Acro S And Xperia Go, Android-Powered, Water Resistant Smartphones

Today, Sony unveiled two new smartphone models, who will soon join the Xperia line-up: Xperia Go and Xperia Acro S, both powered by Google’s Android and water resistant. Both Sony Xperia Go and Sony Xperia Acro S will be available globally beginning with the third quarter of the year.

Sony Xperia Go and Acro S come with scratch proof displays, courtesy of the mineral glass protecting them, but they are also protected against dust and wather.

Sony Xperia Go is running on Android 2.3 Gingerbread and is the low end model of the freshly announced duo. We are dealing with a terminal that has an elegant and slim design, a proof that a resistant smartphone doesn’t have to be massive. The terminal will be available in more body colors: black, white and yellow, and it is 9.8 mm thick.

The low-end device weighs in 110 grams and comes with a 5 megapixel camera with support for 3D panoramic capture, autofocus and 720 video recording support. Xperia Go also has 50 GB of cloud storage (BOX), aGPS, Bluetooth, DLNA, WiFi and microUSB 2.0.

Sony Xperia Go spots a 3.5-inch Retina display with Mobile Bravia technology, a resolution of 480 x 320 pixels and 16 million colors. The Android-powered device has 8 GB of internal storage (4 GB accessible to the user) and 512 MB of RAM. The smartphone comes with a microSD card slot and a 1,305 mAh battery that should be able to keep the phone awake through 6 hours 30 minutes of GSM talk time.

On the other hand, Sony Xperia Acro S is a true high-end model, running on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and having a 4.3-inch Retina Display with 720p resolution.

On the back of the Acro S’ case you will find a 12 megapixel camera with fast capture function that goes from sleep to snap in less than one second. The smartphone also has PlayStation certifications, supports full HD 1080p video recording and has a front-facing camera capable of recording 720p videos.

Inside the Sony Xperia Acro S you will find a dual-core 1.5 GHz CPU and the device will be available in black, pink and white.

The water proof high-end smartphone features support for DLNA, aGPS, Glonass, it sports HDMI out, NFC and 16 GB of internal flash storage, completed by a microSD card slot. Sony equipped the device with 1 GB of RAM, HSPA+ connectivity and a 1,910 mAh battery that gets the device through 6 hours and 40 minutes of GSM calls.
