Xperia S – Light belt tells you what’s happening

Over on Facebook the Sony Ericsson guys have posted a close-up of the Sony Xperia S and highlights the “illuminating transparent belt”. We saw this earlier in our in-depth look but it seems that it’s not just a funky part of the design. It’s a notification light, and let’s you apparently “see your notifications from any angle, anywhere in the room”.

The Xperia S will have a 12 megapixel around the back, another 1.3 megapixel one up front, dual-core 1.5GHz CPU, WiFi, HDMI output, Bluetooth, DLNA, 4.3″ HD (1280 x 720) pixel screen.


Also, according to Xperia Blog, it’ll have an “anti-stain shell” to magically repel dirt. A second feature is the fast charging mechanism, which apparently means it can charge twice as fast as other smartphones. A ten minute charge is said to give the phone an hours worth of life.

      You want to see Sense on a Sony handset? I’m not a fan of their UI either. It also looks like Gingerbread not ICS.
