The Sony Xperia V was unveiled back at IFA 2012 in September and it's launching in Singapore tomorrow before rolling out to other markets.
The Xperia V sits below the Xperia T in Sony's range having a slightly lower specification. However, due to the lack of the release of the latter in Singapore Sony are referring to the Xperia V as "The Bond Phone" in Singapore. Strictly that's not true because the Sony Xperia T was the smartphone featured in the latest Bond film Skyfall.
Sony's Xperia V supports 4G and could be the first Sony smartphone to support the super-fast network in the UK. That assumes that when it does launch EE decide to offer the mobile, but we don't see any reason why they wouldn't want to stock it.
Another thing we're excited about when it comes to the Xperia V is its IP57 certification which means that its dust proof, scratch and water resistant. Furthermore, the 13 mega-pixel camera features sensor-on-lens technology , which reduces the number of layers in the camera reducing it's size significantly.
A 4.3 inch Mobile Bravia 2 touch-screen is present on the Xperia V which runs at a resolution of 1280x720 pixels. While, it's powered by a dual-core 1.5 GHz Snapdragon processor, has 1GB of RAM and 8GB of onboard memory.
As well as support for 4G LTE the Xperia V also supports NFC, 3G, WiFi, Bluetooth and DLNA. One of the only disapointting things about the smartphone is that it comes pre-loaded with Android Ice Cream Sandwich, but we're sure it won't long before it gets Android Jelly Bean.
Currently we don't have any details on when the Xperia V will launch in the UK. However, as soon as 3G gets any new information you'll be the first to know.
