Sony Ericsson Xperia arc S RM1899 in Malaysia

Sony Ericsson Xperia arc S is currently available in Malaysia at the retail price of RM1899 and comes bundled with accessories worth RM429 while stock last.

The Arc S is an upgraded version of Sony Ericsson’s previous flagship the Arc. The key difference is the improved 1.4GHz processor compared to the Arc’s 1GHz. Beyond that the S is almost the same as its predecessor- specs, design, measurements and size.

The new Sony Ericsson Xperia arc S is based on a Qualcomm MSM8255T Snapdragon chipset, which features a 1.4GHz processor, Adreno 205 GPU and 512MB RAM. The rest of the specs are pretty much the same – a 4.2″ FWVGA Reality display with Mobile BRAVIA engine, an 8 megapixel camera with Sony’s Exmor R sensor, 720p video recording and the same impressive connectivity options including an HDMI port.
