It will only become available in South Africa from next month, but last week, Sony Mobile Communications offered a sneak peek at its NXT suite of devices.
The NXT series consists of a range of devices packed with Sony’s four screen technology, which will allow users the freedom to seamlessly connect between various Sony devices, ranging from laptops, to TVs, to laptops, or tablets. This means that users will be able to share and enjoy content on any compatible Sony device they choose.
The Xperia S, the first smartphone in the new Xperia NXT range, is an Android-phone with a high resolution, full Bravia HD screen, 1.5 GHz dual-core processor, a 12MP camera with an Exmor R sensor that allows snappy picture taking – going from standby to taking pictures in just 1.5 seconds. This smartphone will be available locally later this month.
“We are very excited for the launch of the Xperia S in South Africa,” says Christian Lonne, head of sales at Sony Mobile Communications, Middle East and Africa. “We have had a great global response and we are confident that the local consumers will be just as enthusiastic and positive about this device. We at Sony Mobile Communications believe that the Xperia NXT series speaks to the desired target market and will meet the demands of our consumers.”
The other two smartphones in the range, the Xperia P and Xperia U, both also boast Reality Displays powered by Mobile Bravia Engine, providing razor-sharp clarity. Both are also super fast thanks to their one GHz dual-core processors. On these two handsets, this speediness also extends to the camera, which, like the S, also has the ability to go from sleep to snap mode in just over a second with a single key press.
A new SmartDock, exclusive for the Xperia P, turns that handset into an entertainment hub, offering connectivity to multiple screens. By using a TV remote control, users can easily navigate the media content on the phone to watch it on the television instead. The SmartDock has USB support, which means that users can use a wireless keyboard and mouse to write e-mails, browse the web and update their social media feeds.
According to a media release from Sony Mobile Communications, these devices will be available to South African consumers in June.
