Sony held their press conference at the IFA Berlin 2012 and used this opportunity to reveal the next Xperia smartphone lineup.
Leading the way is the Sony Xperia T which sports a 4.6-inch Reality display with Mobile BRAVIA engine and a 1.5GHZ dual-core processor. NFC connectivity is utilised in a similar way to the Samsung Galaxy S3 allowing users to easily pair phones and share content.
The phone has a 13-megapixel camera with 16x digital zoom and 1080p HD video recording whilst the front facing camera provides 720p HD video chatting capabilities. DLNA, HDMI and GPS are included and the phone is PlayStation Certified and this has been confirmed as the smartphone used by James Bond in the latest movie, Skyfall.
The Sony Xperia V is the next phone in the range and this shares many of the same features of the Xperia T but has a smaller 4.3-inch Reality Display with Mobile BRAVIA Engine 2, ClearAudio+ for enhanced sound and High Dynamic Range (HDR) imaging. This imaging feature picks the most optimal settings for photos and applies image processing including layered technology for great imaging results.
The Xperia V is one of the best rated smartphones for dust and water resistance with IP55 and IP57+ meaning it will keep working even if has been immersed in water 1 metre deep for 30 minutes. The phone also has a 13MP camera like the Xperia T as well as an expandable memory and a 1.5GHz dual-core processor.
The Sony Xperia J is bringing up the rear as the entry level phone of the bunch and this smartphone includes a 4-inch display, 5-megapixel camera and GPS, DLNA and Bluetooth. The phone has a 1GHz processor and included a memory card slot for expanding the memory up to 32GB.
All of these new Xperia phones will ship with Android 4.0 on board and the top-end Xperia T is expected to become available over the next few weeks with the Xperia V and J heading our way towards the end of the year.
