Following the footsteps of its rugged predecessors, the Sony Xperia V looks to take the throne as sexiest and smartest toughie around from its older brothers, or can it?
Although the handset barely possess significant difference from the other toughie from the Japanese stable the Xperia Acro S (which actually bested the recently introduced Xperia V is some aspects), it does have some slight advantage over the Acro S like LTE support and a megapixel better camera.

After seeing the specs sheet, it’s interesting why Sony decided to outfit their latest brainchild with smaller battery pack considering that it has LTE support. Basing from the specs sheet alone, we think that the Xperia V is more of a parallel model to the Xperia Acro S than a flagship handset that will take over it.
No official word about when this smartphone will be launched but in terms of pricing we assume that itâ€™ll be around the same price as the Acro S which we did a first impression of here.
