A little wag in the Sony office has revealed that all new Xperia models, and even the ones that are currently in the market, will get the taste of the much hyped Ice Cream Sandwich (Android v4.0) by January 2012. The Italy office of Sony Xperia, however, had another version of the news, where they said that Xperia devices won’t have the ICS until March end.
Sony has already submitted the Xperia Arc and Neo Ice Cream Sandwich firmware for approval and certification. Once the necessary documentation and confirmations clear up, Ice Cream Sandwich should start rolling out for all Xperia users. Phones which can definitely hope to be ICS-enabled will be the Xperia Arc, Arc S, Mini, Mini Pro, Neo, Neo V, Play, Pro, Xperia Ray and Live with Walkman.
Another leak currently doing the rounds is of a new device called the Xperia Arc HD. There are a number of leaked images of this new device, along with a confirmation of the specifications. The Xperia Arc HD will come with a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor, a brilliant 12 mega pixel rear camera and a 4.3 inch screen with 720p resolution. It will have a decent 1 GB of RAM and 32 GB of in-built storage capacity, though without a Micro SD slot. The battery will be 1750 mAh, now a standard among most flagship devices.
Officially, you will definitely see the phone feature for the first time at the Consumer Electronics Show 2012, which will be held from January 10-13. With such sizzling images and impressive specifications, the Sony Xperia Arc HD can very well aspire to be one of the most hyped phones in 2012. Even though it brings nothing revolutionary to the table, it is definitely one of the best looking designs we’ve seen in a long time.
