Sony has already shown off a few new additions to the company’s Xperia line at the CES 2012 and it seems that it has even more.
Sony has just introduced at the CES 2012 the new Xperia ion, an LTE smartphone that will be available in the US if you sign a contract with AT&T.
Looking at the specs, we can spot a 1.5Ghz MSM8260 processor and the Gingerbread OS for now, but it will most likely receive the Ice Cream Sandwich update pretty soon.
The Sony Xperia ion looks very much like the Xperia S, a smartphone we’ve talked about just a couple of days ago. Xperia ion features a 4.6-inch HD Reality display coming with 1280×720 HD resolution and Mobile BRAVIA Engine, however there is a difference of design between the two.
Other features packed by Sony in Xperia ion’s case include a 12 megapixel camera with Sony Exmor R that’s capable of Full HD video playback and recording. The Sony Xperia ion also comes with 16GB of internal storage, miniHDMI so you can hook it up to your HDTV, BRAVIA Sync and DLNA.
There are also the usual connectivity features such as WiFi, Bluetooth and GPS and you’ll be able to use it at its max once it arrives on AT&T’s $G LTE network in Q2 of 2012.
