We are looking at the now popular 4.3” HD Reality Display which delivers razor sharp clarity images, and will also support full HD video recording, HD video chat and easy HDMI TV connectivity in order for you to play back memories in great detail on the big screen.
The Xperia acro S will also feature NFC connectivity, allowing you to easily open up applications with a single touch against an Xperia SmartTag.

Not only that, it boasts of a scratch resistant mineral glass display with wet finger tracking capability, and boasts of IP55 and IP57 ratings for dust and water resistance.
