A true flagship release, Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc features top-of-the-line technical specifications. The handset runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread operating system with its 1 GHz Scorpion processor and flaunts a massive 4.2-inch capacitive touchscreen display, 8 MegaPixel camera with autofocus and LED flash, HD 720p video capture capability and microSD card slot supporting up to 32GB. As for connectivity, Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc supports Wifi, Bluetooth and 3G.

Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc features Sony's award-winning Exmor R mobile sensor with f/2.4 lens, which enables users to capture high quality pictures and HD videos even in low light conditions. All pictures and videos captured using the handset can then be shared in HD on a Sony Bravia TV via the built-in HDMI port.

Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc dons a price tag of £459.99 in the UK. We've yet to receive official pricing details of the phone in the Philippines but off hand, I'm expecting this flagship release to get an SRP in the range of PhP 30,000 - PhP 40,000. Please stay tuned for updates on this handset's availability in the Philippines.

UPDATE: The official suggested retail price of Sony Ericsson Arc in the Philippines is Php 29,990 -- a lot less than that was earlier predicted. No word yet on official launch date.

  1. whoa!! 30-40K?? sana mas mura ang experia neo

  2. wow.... I need to work hard pa!!! heheheh

  3. Sony: Stuck at 1.6 when 2.3 came out.

  4. If it will follow the £459.99 tag price then expect it to hit P45K in the Philippines.

    Really, Sony? Why do you always release phones at sky high price then after a month or two, you can buy the same phone from gray markets at half to 2/3 of the original price? Kaya naman nakakahinayang mag invest sa SE phones e. Tsk tsk.

    Bring the arc down to 30k and I will be first in line. kthxbye.

  5. The device is great but I'm not willing to pay for that pricey gadget and its overhyped features.
    If I want an excellent camera phone then I will go for N8.
    If I want an Android then I will go for Galaxy S 2.
    If I want a slim phone then I will go for iPhone 4.

    Sayang, ganda pa naman ng Arc. :D

  6. SRP price is actually just P29,990 as posted here:

    Medyo mahal, pero hindi sobrang mahal gaya ng iPhone

    by the end of this month, bibili kami ng wife ko nito. iphone and other apple products nagiging trend na lang... parang kaya dumadami bumibili ng iphone kasi uso... do some research and youll know na may ibang phone na kayang higitan ang iphone... like this xperia arc...

  9. sana 20k nlng..para hindi masyado masakit sa bulsa..hehe

  10. Php 31,989.96 / 12 = 2,665.83 per month for 12 months @ MemoExpress

  11. bumili ka ng lahat ng yan,magkano mggastos mo?e sa arc anjn na lahat ng canabi mo,mgkano lng?haha

  12. kupal! buti kung kaya mo bilin yang tatlo fone na sinasabi mo! angas mo, bobo!

  13. I got my nokia n8 .. camera is good yes ! but symbian sucks so i ended up selling it.. this phone is worth the price. comparing the tech specs of this phone to nokia n8 its greater. Regarding the camera. 12 megapixel of nokia n8 is actually the same with sony ericsson's 8.1 MGP .. camera of sony ericsson phone are a lot better than nokia phones :)

  14. d kung ayaw mo nyan, di wag mo bilhin, dme mo reklamo!

  15. The Price is not worth of it,, sayang ganda pa nmn design kaso lugi sa material still made w/ plastic rather go w/ galaxy S w/super AMOLED or HTC desire HD w/ full alloy body molding...hayzz sony .. nkaka disappoint na...

  16. wifi pa rin ang problema kagaya ng x10

  17. the best phone i've ever use

  18. yes. MGP of phones differ from each other. and i agree with u. 5mp nga nokia eh 3.2 lang ng Sony q.

  19.  ang dami nyong reklamo....!!!!! hahahah!!             :D   peace!

  20. i saw this at sm dasma, sale sila at 18k as of today

  21. Since I'm a gaming console savvy, I tried to compare Xperia Arc with Xperia Play. I also compare it to PSP Go. Here is my personal review:
