Sony Xperia S landing at on January 30?

January 17th, 2012

Sony Xperia SOnline retailer has confirmed that the Sony Xperia S will arrive in the UK on January 30, way ahead of its previously-confirmed March 5 release date.

That’s according to The Inquirer, who claims to have spoken with the online retail giant – which has updated its Xperia S pre-order page to show the new imminent release date. However, Phones 4u previously announced that it had scored exclusivity with Sony’s debut own-branded smartphone, so we’ve been in touch with Play for further confirmation.

Announced at CES in Vegas last week, the Sony Xperia S is the firm’s first phone to arrive sans Ericsson branding. That seems to have had a positive impact on its specifications, which include a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, Android 2.3 and a 4.3-inch HD screen. There’s also a 12 megapixel rear-facing camera, a 1.3 megapixel webcam, DLNA and HDMI and either 16GB or 32GB of included storage.

If you don’t mind paying £449.99 to get your hands on the smartphone, head over to to pre-order yours now. Alternatively, it’ll soon be available through O2, Orange, T-Mobile and Three, where prices are likely to start from around £30 per month.

We’ll bring you any updates as soon as we get them.
