Xperia arc RRP drops to RM1,899

Good news people! One of the most deliciously designed single-core Android smartphones in the market — the Xperia arc — has a revised pricing.

The Gingerbread running, 8MP Exmor-R totting, Mobile Bravia Engine enhanced, Reality Display equipped, stylishly thin Xperia arc now retails for RM1,899 from the original price of RM2,099.

Yes, you can get an LG Optimus 2X for the same price but the arc has the dual-core value-phone beat when it comes to style and camera performance. Also, in terms of real-world performance, the single-core arc cuts it pretty close against the dual-core LG but the hard numbers tell a completely different story.

In case you’re curious, we got some benchmark figures of the two devices after the jump.
