Xperia S Black WhiteThe white paper for the Sony Xperia S (LT26i) is now available to download. There’s not too much we already didn’t know, but we do have confirmation that storage will be taken care of 32GB eMMC flash memory and there is no mention of expandable storage via microSD card. Sony says it will also have between 1 to 1.5GB of internal storage.

It also confirms that the Xperia S will come with a 1750mAh sealed/non-removable battery capable of 7 hours and 30 minutes of GSM talk time, 25 hours of music listening and 6 hours and 30 minutes of video playback.

The Xperia S uses the same Qualcomm Snapdragon S3 MSM8260 chipset found in the Xperia ion, including a 1.5GHz dual-core processor and Adreno 220 GPU. The Xperia S will have 1GB of RAM. In terms of networks, the Xperia S will use UMTS [HSPA 850 (Band V), 900 (Band VIII), 1900 (Band II), 2100 (Band I)] and GSM [GPRS/EDGE 850, 900, 1800, 1900]. You can download the white paper for yourself here.

    For the Japanese Xperia S (the NX), it says storage is addable via an external SD card reader packed in the box. How that’ll work, I have no idea.

    Why no LTE? That’s a big omission. Everything else looks great.

    I think 32Gb is too little in 2012
    specially when recording fullHD videos

    Please Sony make 64GB version of this beauty … please!

    no, just give us SD expansion instead like almost every cheap feature phone has had in the last 5 years as a basic feature.

    NO LTE because it is the “International” version which is for the EU, they do not have LTE there!!

    Right on the previous post. In Japanese: *???microSD?????????????External SD supported only when used with the included reader/writer cable included

    By the way: the sheet doesn’t say, that the battery is sealed.. embedded can also mean, that it’s built in when shipped but this doesn’t necessarily mean that you can’t remove it. I also wondered where to put the sim card if everything is sealed. Somewhere the case has to be opened to put the sim card inside and that way it wouldn’t make much sense to lock the battery if the cover nevertheless is removable

    Ehm, the first LTE networks in the world were the ones in Sweden and Norway so yes, LTE networks are present in Europe. Tough I cannot really say how big the LTE networks are outside the Scandinavian countries.
