Now that Sony has taken the reigns over the smartphone market, and the partnership with Ericsson is over and done with, seeing more Sony-branded devices isn’t all that surprising. But what is surprising, is seeing an Arc-like device without that Ericsson branding, which seems to be the case right here, with this unknown device making an appearance in the recent theatrical trailer for the upcoming film release, Resident Evil: Retribution.
Sony is releasing the movie, so in all actuality it isn’t strange to see a Sony-branded phone in the trailer, especially considering its placement. But, there have been rumors of a high-definition Arc in the past, and now those rumors are back in action because of the trailer and above image. Does it mean anything? Maybe not. But it could, with Sony having plenty of devices coming down the pipe this year.
You can see the trailer, and the phone itself, in the trailer below.
