One of the big scenes during CES was when Sony unveiled their Sony Xperia S smartphone. It’s the latest Xperia smartphone that will be slated for worldwide release in the coming months that will carry out the Sony-and-only brand name on the device, but Japanese Xperia S versions seem to have some small SE logo at the back. Nonetheless, the Xperia S is one of the must-watch Android smartphone starting now.
And before the device is out, I will sharing to you the top 5 features on the Xperia S that emerged to be new and innovative that could only be seen from its few competitors.
Reality HD Resolution Display with Bravia Engine
One key feature of the Xperia S is its display by sporting a unique high-resolution 4.3″ capacitive LCD screen that uses Bravia Engine, present to most current high end TVs of Sony. The 1280x720p resolution is new and rare on smartphones and with enhanced pixel density of 342ppi, it surely makes the Xperia S standout.
New Iconic Identity Design
What makes the Xperia S more unique is that the new Iconic Identity design has been crafted and perfected onto every angle and surface of the Xperia S exterior. The illuminating semi transparent strip below the screen is an example of it where it emphasize the clear-crisp display and also by working as a notifier and status indicator.
12-megapixel camera on Exmor R sensor
Taking low light pictures on smartphones has never been easy but not until Sony incorporated its Exmor R sensor for their mobiles too. Few of the Xperia lines inherits these enhanced mobile feature and Xperia S is one of them. Accompanying that camera prowess, are your full HD video recording and sweep panorama features as well as loads of enhancing camera settings.

NFC in an Android featuring Xperia SmartTags
If you haven’t heard about NFC yet, just head to this page for more related NFC stuff I’ve posted.
But to refresh and give you little bit, NFC stands for Near Field Communication and it’s the new upcoming wireless tech piece that will likely to be captured by market soon. It works by simple tapping (near contact) your NFC enabled device to other enabled device or tags like Xperia SmartTags to exchange data in lighter form such contacts, credits/money payment open such apps, initiate bluetooth pairing and more.
Currently, only few phones carry that feature most noted for it are the recent Symbian Belle devices of Nokia & Nokia N9, selected BlackBerry and the Samsung-Google Galaxy Nexus. But soon we will be embracing and accepting NFC as a new way of wireless tech for our mobile devices.
