The Sony Ericsson Xperia arc S is the fastest Xperia smartphone to date with a 1.4GHz Scorpion single-core processor and running on Android 2.3.4 out of the box.
The Xperia arc S is almost identical to its arc predecessor say for the processor. The new 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.
The Xperia arc S also preserves the original arc design and has the same measurements and size.
Sony Ericsson Xperia arc S will run on Android 2.3.4 Gingebread out of the box - the same version that will tick inside the newly announced Xperia neo V and will become available to the whole Xperia 2011 lineup later this year.

It will bring USB on-the-go, Sony 3D sweep panorama for the camera, even better Facebook integration, Swype-like text input (T9 Trace), integrated screen capture, video chats via Google Talk and more.
The Xperia arc S will hit the shelves in Q4 this year, but the price is yet to be revealed.
