Sony Ericsson has announced a new phone recently or rather downgraded version of an old phone called the Xperia Neo V where where V the number five in roman numerals and not the alphabet ‘v’. This phone runs on an Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread operating system and has a 1 GHz Scorpion processor. The phone also has 512 MB RAM, a 5MP Auto focus camera capable of shooting 720P HD videos at 30FPS (Frames Per Second) and 3D sweep panorama functionality. The phones has a fair amount of connectivity options like HDMI port, streaming content to a television via WiFi using DLAN and USB Host that is connect a USB keyboard, mouse or gamepad via the USB port using a live Dock. The phone has a 3.7 inch LED-backlit LCD, capacitive touchscreen (480 x 854 pixels) and Sony calls it ‘ Reality Display with Mobile BRAVIA® Engine’
The only thing different between the Neo and the Neo V is that while Neo had a 8MP camera the Neo V has a 5MP camera as Sony Ericsson has some difficulties manufacturing the 8 megapixel camera sensors since the tragic earthquakes in Japan and that’s most probably why the neo V is supposed to replace the previous neo.
The Xperia Neo is priced at Rs. 17,500 available at Flipkart and Saholic.
