Sony Ericsson has lifted the lid on its latest Android contender the Xperia Arc, packing a feature set to get Fandroids drooling.

At just 8.7mm at its thinnest point, the Arc (the handset formerly known as the Anzu) is a very sexy bit of kit, but still makes room for an expansive 4.2-inch Reality Display touchscreen.

As leaked in the blogosphere some weeks ago, it’ll run Android 2.3, AKA Gingerbread, out of the box and sweetening the package further is an 8.1-megapixel camera onboard with Sony’s Exmor R sensor for happier snapping in low light conditions.

To keep everything ticking over smoothly, there’s also a 1GHz Qualcomm processor onboard.

Bert Nordberg, President of Sony Ericsson, said, “We’re starting strong in 2011 by introducing our most exciting Xperia product yet.

“Xperia Arc combines state-of-the-art Sony technology with breathtaking design to entertain and wow consumers. All on the latest Android release.”

Pricing is as yet unconfirmed, but expect to see the Arc showing up on UK networks at some time in the first quarter.
