The Sony Xperia S first arrived back in March, making history as Sony’s first smartphone not to have the Ericsson branding. The phone may be starting to age now, but Sony hasn’t abandoned it by any means. In fact, it seems Sony intends to keep the Xperia S going for a while longer, with the recent announcement of the Dark Silver color option.

This is a welcome addition to the existing black and white color choices on the Xperia S, and I honestly think it looks the sexiest out of the bunch. For those that need a reminder, the Sony Xperia S is powered by a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, a 4.3-inch 1280×720 display, a 12MP Exmor R camera, NFC technology, 32GB of internal storage and Android 4.0. As you can tell by the specs, the Xperia S might be nearly half a year old, but it has certainly aged well.

When can you expect to get your hands on the new color? Unfortunately, Sony has yet to let us know the actual date it plans to launch the new color option. Instead, Sony simply tells everyone to “keep their eyes peeled.”
