Earlier this year, we saw Sony’s NXT Series which features a unique transparent belt and this time they are bringing back the familiar arc design which was first featured on the Sony Ericsson Xperia arc. In the earlier models such as Xperia S, Xperia P and Xperia U, the absence of expansion micro SD memory slot was frown upon and it is good they have it included with the new series. All 4 are running on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Jelly Bean update is expected to roll out eventually.
Apart from the return of the arc design with Sony branding, they have finally have given more hardware boost in terms of processor. Unlike its rivals that are pushing quad-core, Sony is still pushing dual-core processor smart phones but with better performance in a form of Qualcomm S4 Krait processors. Early benchmark result shows that the new dual-core S4 processors on the Xperia T, Xperia TX and Xperia V is much more superior than today’s quad-core smart phone rivals.
Sony Malaysia has shared that Malaysia will getting the Xperia J and Xperia TX but no pricing and availability dates have been provided at the moment.
