New Delhi: Sony Xperia S, the much talked about phone from the house of
Sony Ericsson, will have two new added features - anti-stain shell and
fast charging batteries.

The smartphone was unveiled at the recently concluded Consumer Electronic Show 2012 at Las Vegas.

The two new features were reported on the company’s Facebook page, where
it says that the device will come with an anti-stain shell which is
perfect for those of you that love to spill coffee or soda all over your
electronics. The shell will likely be similar to the coating that
Motorola put on the Droid RAZR.
