IFA 2012: Sony Xperia T, V and J smartphones break cover

Sony has unveiled three new smartphones today at its IFA press conference in Berlin which have a similar design as the Xperia Arc and the Arc S from 2011.

The three models are number 4, 5 and 6 in the company’s Xperia Next series, which also comprises the Xperia S, U and P.

The Xperia T will be the new flagship smartphone replacing the Xperia S and will launch globally over the next few weeks. The Xperia V and the Xperia J will launch worldwide in Q4 2012.

A variant of the T, known as the TX will also be available for some specific markets as well. Sony has confirmed that the phones will come with 60-day trial of Sony Entertainment Network’s cloud-based digital streaming music service, Music Unlimited.

All three smartphones use a Qualcomm system-on-chip, come with Google Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (with Jelly Bean coming soon), either a 4.3in display (with a 1,280 x 720 resolution) for the T and the V and a 4in 854 x 480 resolution for the J.

The Xperia V also introduced a Clear Audio+ mode and comes with +IP55/57 rating which means that the phone is protected against dust and the effects of immersion between 15cm and 100cm for up to 30 minutes.

Both the V and the T also come with LTE capabilities and a new NFC connectivity feature called “One-Touch”.

Desire worked at ITProPortal right at the beginning and was instrumental in turning it into the leading publication we all know and love today. He then moved on to be the Editor of TechRadarPro - a position he still holds - and has recently been reunited with ITProPortal since Future Publishing's acquisition of Net Communities.
