The Sony Ericsson S312 (codenamed Athena) is a low-end, lifestyle, budget GSM candybar mobile phone announced by Sony Ericsson on April 7, 2009 and released in June of the same year.

The S312 is the enhanced successor of the S302, which is itself a sibling to the K550. Like the S302, it was based on Sagem's ODM platform, which received considerable backlash from critics and users for its lack of stability. However, the S312 stands out with its scratch-resistant screen, illuminated keypad shortcuts for swift camera setting adjustments, and its Photo Fix feature.

The S312 was offered in Dawn Blue and Honey Silver colorways.
