Here's some good news for Sony Ericsson Xperia Play owners looking to get more out of their device's camera. According to multiple XDA forum members, the upcoming Android 2.3.4 update for the Play will enable video recording at 720p resolution with continuous auto-focus. The software update in question isn't widely available yet, but the reports have been confirmed by multiple users who are already rocking 2.3.4 on their devices.
Since it launched back in April, the phone's 5-megapixel rear camera has been limited to recording video at 480p or lower, so kudos to SE for going the extra mile to add extra functionality in its software updates. Join us after the jump for a 720p sample video, courtesy of XDA poster Nhialor.
Thanks to everyone who sent this in!

I really hope verizon doesn't make us play owners wait til 2012 to get this update.
Oh don't you worry, they will. We didn't even get facebook inside experia when we got our 2.3.3 update. There's no logic to this. The sooner I find out what AT&T has to offer, I'm probably gonna eat the early cancellation fee, and switch.
