Xperia S to feature a fast-charge battery and anti-stain coating

27 January, 2012

The first Xperia to have stripped itself of the Ericsson brand, the upcoming Sony Xperia S, is rumored to feature a sunlight-activated coating which should help repel dirt and other stain-forming materials, as well as a quick-charge battery.

Dirt and chocolate stains on the cover are said to come off easily after the UV coating is exposed to sunlight for several seconds, and the battery charge times are expected to be reduced by half when compared to previous Xperia models. A ten minute charge should provide an hours worth of standby.

We first got a look at the Xperia S a few weeks ago at CES, and were really impressed with its BRAVIA-powered display image quality.

Expect the Sony Xperia S this March for around €462.

Finally a phone which use sunligth to charge. It seems so obvious to me to have a cover with solar cells so you can partly charge you phone and extend the battery life. Why is there no aftermarket who makes backcovers which can charge your phone...
