Xperia SP ‘Light effects’ setting demoed; handset showing up on PC Companion & SUS

Xperia SP SUSJust a quick heads-up to let people know that the Sony Xperia SP (C530X) is now listed on Sony’s PC Companion and Sony Update Service (SUS). Obviously this doesn’t mean much until the handset is out, but it does highlight that it is well on track to launch within the next month. We for one are very much looking forward to seeing the return of the transparent bar, along with just how customisable it will be.

To get an idea of how this will work, check out the video below which shows that there will be a ‘Light effects’ menu option sitting under Settings > Display. This will allow you to change the light for various notifications such as missed calls, unread SMS, alarms as well as incoming calls and SMS’. Various colour options are presented such as white, turquoise, yellow, green, red, blue and others. The display settings also hosts the glove mode and white balance settings. Check out the informative video below.

    This phone is great. I would definately go for it as a replacement for my XP…but i already bought XZ.

    I hope Sony will include some light effects on JB update for Xperia S. (:

  • Starting to like this phone more than the Xperia Z. Those light notifications are cool. But the battery impresses me the most and the £300 price tag even more! If this is marketed right could be a super hit!
    Sony need now to concentrate on the USA and its update schedule!

    XS is holdings only the white light. So it cannot be possible

  • FolkCleric

    I’m talking about notifications. Sony could include in the XS firmware, because now we have to use third party app.

  • Xlash Andraid

    Don’t remind me, I miss it too, a lot.

  • Yep!

  • sinhue
