Less than 48 hours after officially unveiling the Xperia acro S and the Xperia go (also known as the Advance), Sony has made the two phones’ specs official. The water and dust-resistant duo stars in two new official video clips, where you’ll be able to take another quick peek at the phone’s sleek designs, but also check out their most important features.
The Xperia acro S is clearly the star here, as it is pretty much a (slightly) upgraded Xperia S with some resistance to the elements added. The exact same dual-core 1.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S3 processor powering the original Xperia S can be found in the acro S. You also get 1 GB of RAM, 16 GB of on-board memory, a 12 MP rear-facing shooter, a 1.3 MP front-facing webcam, HDMI, DLNA, and NFC.
The acro S will sport a 4.3-inch LCD touchscreen with 1280 x 720 pixels resolution, once again identical to the one on the Xperia S, but will run Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box. Another important difference between the two is that the acro S will come with a heftier 1,750 mAh battery.
As for the Xperia go, set to be marketed as the “Advance” in the United States, it’s a phone targeted towards the mid-range users and is powered by a dual-core 1 GHz NovaThor processor. Running Android 2.3 Gingerbread with a “planned upgrade to ICS”, the Advance will be sporting a rather modest 3.5-inch screen with 480 x 320 pixels resolution screen, but will just as fashionable as the Xperia acro S.
No words yet on the pricing and availability of any of the two phones; the only we know is they will come “in Q3” (sometime between July and September). Stay tuned to find out more about the two!
