As well as the Xperia S and Xperia ion, Sony also announced two new smartphones for the Japanese market. The Xperia NX (SO-02D) is basically a Japanese version of the Xperia S. The Xperia acro HD (SO-03D) will have Japanese specific features such as infrared port, NFC mobile wallet and a TV tuner and is a follow-up from last year’s best-selling Xperia acro. Both handsets will launch on NTT DoCoMo, the Xperia NX will be available in February 2012 and the Xperia acro HD will follow on a month later in March 2012.
The Xperia acro HD has a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 4.3-inch HD resolution display (720 x 1280 pixels) and a 12.1MP Exmor R camera sensor. It also comes with micro HDMI, 16GB of internal storage and a 1840mAh battery. Unusually this handset will also be waterproof to depths of 1m. The Xperia acro will be available in four colours (Aqua Blue, Black, Sakura Pink, Ceramic White). It will weigh 149g and have dimensions of 11.9mm x 66mm x 126mm (D x W x H).
