Specifications – Sony Xperia V smartphone

xperiavAlthough now a bit long in the tooth, Sony’s Xperia V was a decent phone when it launched in August 2012, with some useful features including a 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm MSM8960 Snapdragon chip and a touchscreen panel measuring 4.3 inches with 720 x 1280-pixel resolution.

Also, you get a cache of 1 GB of RAM to play with, while an Adreno 225 core inside the processor drives that 4.3-inch panel.

One of the more unusual features was its IP57 rating – dust resistance and waterproof up to a depth of one metre for 30 minutes.

Internal storage is delivered through 8 GB of on-board flash, while you get plenty of external storage, thanks to microSD, up to 32 GB to store more files. The original operating system at launch was Android 4.0.4 (Ice Cream Sandwich), with a planned upgrade to 4.1.2 (Jelly Bean). Battery power comes by way of  a 1750mAh Li-Ion type, able to last for 7 hours talk and 300 hours in standby mode.

Next, wide area network connectivity comes in the form of 802.11 a/b/g/n-standard Wi-Fi and Bluetooth v4.0 with A2DP handles the lower-power wireless side of things. The device’s 2G network coverage includes the 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900 MHz bands and 3G is supported over 850 / 900 / 2100 MHz.

A 13 MP (4128×3096 pixels) with autofocus image sensor on the back delivers the device’s best photo quality and you get a secondary VGA option on the front for video-conferencing. The device is also capable of capturing video at up to 1080p@30fps.

The Xperia V’s weight tips the scales at 120 grams while its dimensions are 129 x 65 x 10.7 mm. The phone was announced back in August 2012.
