When the new Sony S series made it’s first appearance in a leak a couple of weeks ago no specs were known, but now a French online store has gone the whole way and leaked the full specs of the new device.
Sony has gone the usual route of putting in a couple of new features but leaving the rest the same and this time it’s a speaker, voice recording and a flip-out stand that are the new additions. The rest is the same old Sony setup with a 320×240 screen, h.264 video, MP3/WMA/AAC audio and a battery life of 42 hours for audio and 6.5 hours for video. it will come in 8GB and 16GB capacities.
Sony’s way of updating their players sure doesn’t give that much reason for celebration with each upgrade changing only the design and one or two features. This is the fourth generation MTP-capable Sony players and you won’t notice many differences from the first generation, which is a good thing for people who don’t want to upgrade but it can’t be that good for Sony since well, people won’t upgrade. So, if you’re a soon-to-be Sony user or just really want an upgrade, there’s a speaker and voice recorder in it for you and not much else.
