The guys over Xperia Blog have managed to get some details about the unannounced Sony Ericsson Xperia Acro handset. Based on the new pics, as well as earlier leaked information, it seems the Acro is a slightly bulkier version of the Xperia Arc with new functionality for the Japanese market, including NFC, a TV tuner and infra-red sensor.
Sony Ericsson Xperia acro might sport the same hardware specifications as the already available mobile phone, though the leaked photo with it shows a much bulkier device.
Unlike the Xperia arc, the new mobile phone is said to be 11.8mm thin, while weighing in at 135 grams.
It would be launched on shelves with a 4.2-inch touchscreen display on the front, as well as with an 8-megapixel photo snapper on the back, with LED flash and HD video recording capabilities (the Exmor R camera sensor, as other new Xperia devices).
The Sony Ericsson Xperia acro is also said to arrive on shelves with Google’s Android 2.3 Gingerbread operating system on board, and with support for various Google Mobile Services, as well as for applications available for download from the Android Market.
No release date has been revealed yet, but with some of the 2011 Xperia phones being delayed or in short supply due to the recent natural disasters in Japan, it could be a while before the Acro hits Japanese shelves
