Sony Ericsson Xperia arc and neo coming this summer

To those who’s been waiting for the sexiness that is the Sony Ericsson Xperia arc, it’s coming as soon as next week with a sub-Php30k retail price.

Sony Ericsson announced today that their Xperia arc will be available by April 5 or 8 with a suggested retail price of Php29,990. Cheaper than the Php32k that was originally advised to us earlier this month. The neo on the other hand will arrive on May with a very tempting price of Php22,750.


These phones boasts of jaw-dropping specs and technology along with the latest Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) OS. Bravia technology display and Sony Exmor R lens for its camera makes this one of the highly anticipated phones. Feel free to check out our first impressions on the Xperia arc and the Xperia neo including their detailed specs.

Sony Ericsson said that specially marked kits of the Xperia arc phones will come with the AN-400 Sony Ericsson car charger until the end of the month. And both new Xperia phones will be released with an HD game promotion where customers can choose three out of ten HD game titles to download until June 30, 2011.   Some of the exciting HD game choices include Asphalt 5, Tom Clancy’s HAWX, Assasin’s Creed and Real Football 2011.

We also asked about the Xperia pro and play and Sony Ericsson said that due to limited production, there’s no word yet on when or if they will ever arrive here.

  • How I wish I could buy such an expensive Smartphone. It’s like buying a brand new Desktop computer!

    • yup hard choice. you can get a 32″ TV or a desktop/laptop with the prices of smartphones these days.

    • jex

    • well yeah. pero you need to bring a bag everytime since hindi kasya yung tab sa bulsa mo. 😛

    • Richard

    • jex

      galaxy tab walang ka class class tignan, Neo and xperia design is incomparable to samsung galaxy phones. bonus nalang natin yung powerful specs ng new xperia line up pero over all yung design talaga eye magnet. di katulad ng samsung at other brand magkakamukha parang iphone 4 lang hehehe. Go Sony Ericsson

      • tama ka diyan..

    wow ang mura ng xperia neo, sana mapaaga yung release nito. one of the cheapest android phone with high end features(Reality Display, ermor r lens, Bravia mobile engine, a pocket sized 3.7 inchs display) in PH market soon.

    • yup yun din naisip ko. drawback lang talaga is yung internal memory. hehehe pero ok lang yun sa akin. di naman ako masyadong ma-apps.

  • San ba may stores ng SE?. Inaantay ko pa din ang Xperia Play. nom nom nom

    • ang alam ko meron sa Robinson’s Galleria. Pero wala talaga yung Play. sa US ka na lang pabili.

    • cool…. we asked the PR and yun yung reply na binigay sa amin. hmmm… there may be hope for the Pro din siguro.

    Sony Ericsson keeps releasing “premium” phones with hardware similar to other companies’s “previous year premium” phones.

  • Lucien Tiojanco

    Sorry, I meant companies’… LOL!

    Anyway, I dunno why they think they can price this 50% more expensive than equivalent phones. Sony Ericsson isn’t even among the top 5 phone manufacturers and have greatly lagged behind in terms of quality and specs.

    • it’s true but i think they’re catching up again. these phones have quite an impressive tech on them. besides there’s so little you can improve on the hardware of phone aside from the processor… and camera perhaps so there’s little room to grow. they’re catching up in terms of the technology inside the phone.

    • Gman

      I agree. The time they released Arc and Neo, other mobiles already parades their dual core phones. Talk about late.

  • ninetales

    sana pwede trade-in…gaya ng sasakyan..kung meron sana i-trade-in ko itong old sony phone ko..para lng sa xperia arc…hehehehe

    • sa cmkcellphones 26.3k na lang yung arc. nagmura na pero mahal pa rin. hehehe.

  • jae clyde
