Sony shows off its new dark silver edition of the Sony Xperia S
Earlier Monday, the new black color for the Samsung Galaxy S III was confirmed by UK retailer MobileFun. But that isn't the only high-end model to get a new color. The Sony Xperia S is getting a dark silver color option. Sony isn't forthcoming with an actual release date, saying that it will be coming in a few weeks and those interested should be keeping their eyes peeled. Sony recently cited strong demand for the Sony Xperia S as one reason that the company was able to report a small operating profit in the latest quarter.

The Sony Xperia S is known for a couple of things. One is the high 342ppi pixel density which makes the display extremely clear. In fact, Sony quotes a report from Strategy Analytics as saying that the Sony Xperia S has the sharpest HD display on a smartphone. The other thing the device is known for is the thin translucent strip near the bottom of the device that houses the antennas on the phone and gives the unit a unique look.

Sony also plans on taking the device, overclocking the dual-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm MSM8260 processor to 1.7GHz, offering the model in blue and pink, and calling it the Sony Xperia SL.
