We've been expecting Sony Mobile to come with a new set of products at this year's IFA trade fair. However, we've been a little disappointed that even though the Japanese company announced 4 new smartphones and a tablet, they're not as impressive as expected.
The four new handsets in the Xperia series follow the same curved design lines, so there is little to no innovation when it comes to look.
The new Android flagship smartphone launched by Sony, the Xperia T is the most powerful, followed closely by the Xperia V.
The key features of the Sony Xperia V
is the amazing 4.3-inch Reality Display HD, which is based on Sony's Mobile Bravia Engine 2 technology.
Another strong point of the smartphone is the powerful 1.5 GHz dual-core processor, accompanied by an Adreno 225 graphics processing unit and 1GB of RAM.
Thanks to its IPx5/7 certification, Sony Xperia V comes with the highest level of water and dust resistance.
Sony Xperia V boasts an impressive 13-megapixel rear photo snapper with LED flash, autofocus and full HD (1080p) video recording, as well as secondary facing camera for video calls.
Although the smartphone is shipped with Android 4.0
Ice Cream Sandwich operating system out of the box, Sony confirmed a Jelly Bean upgrade would be available soon after the device hits shelves.
The phone's 1700 mAh Li-Ion battery is rated by the manufacturer for up to 300 hours of standby time (400 hours in 3G mode) or up to 7 hours of talk time.
It is also worth mentioning that Xperia V packs a whopping 32GB amount of storage, which can be further expanded up to 32GB via microSD memory card.
According to Sony Mobile, Xperia V will be launched on the market in Q3/Q4 2012, for a price that will be announced closer to release.
