Whenever a consumer electronics device is being prepared to be released to the masses in the US, it will have to jump through all the hoops and loops set up by the FCC. While the Sony Xperia S has already been spotted in the past, said smartphone (which has already dropped the ‘Ericsson’ moniker if you have noticed), has already been seen roaming through the hallways of the FCC. Commission documents that claimed the Xperia S will come with its very own anti-stain housing alongside a fast charging-ability (that is certainly handy in this day and age) will look as though it resembles the proper bands for AT&T’s 3G spectrum. While it will play nice with AT&T’s frequencies, that does not mean the Xperia S will be hook up with the rest of AT&T’s merry band of handsets, never mind that the Sony Xperia Ion recently joined AT&T’s LTE line-up.
Just to recap, the Sony Xperia S comes with a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, a 4.3″ 720p Reality Display, a 12-megapixel Exmor R main camera, a front facing camera that drops the wimpy VGA tag, but rather shoulders a 720p resolution shooter, NFC support, HDMI out, Android 2.3 Gingerbread and 32GB of internal memory. Sony has confirmed that there will be an Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update coming your way later on as well.
